Despite allowing 459 yards of total offense and 21 first downs, the Bears defense once again showed that they are one of the best in the league at taking away the football.
The first takeaway of the game came off a sack of Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger from a blitzing D.J. Williams, who forced a fumble that was recovered by James Anderson. The Bears offense was able to capitalize on the takeaway in the ensuing drive with Matt Forte running into the end zone to put the Bears up 10-0.
Roethlisberger was then intercepted by Major Wright in the second quarter, and he returned it for a 38-yard touchdown to put the Bears up 24-3.
Steelers running back Felix Jones was stripped by Wright at the beginning of the second half, and the ball was recovered by Henry Melton.
With the Steelers down 34-23, Lance Briggs forced a fumble out of the hand of Roethlisberger, then landed in Julius Peppers' arms who returned it for a touchdown with less than four minutes to go.
Safety Chris Conte closed out the night with an interception of Roethlisberger with less than two minutes remaining in the fourth quarter.
Much like the defense of last season, the Bears are once again making a name for themselves by not only being able to take the ball away, but by being able to find the end zone.
