Chicago Bears vs. Pittsburgh Steelers: Live Score, Highlights and Analysis
In the end it was all about the turnovers. The Pittsburgh Steelers forced no turnovers, but had two interceptions and three lost fumbles, sealing their fate this week. The Bears bet the Steelers handily 40-23.
The Bears were able to take one of those interceptions and one fumble and return them for quick scores, twice crushing any momentum the Steelers were building in a comeback.
The 0-3 Steelers now have to travel to England to take on the Minnesota Vikings, and will try once again to get into the win column. The Bears will ride their momentum into Detroit to take on the Lions.
The entire game was a series of ups and downs for both teams, but the ups for the Bears were higher, and the downs for the Steelers were much lower. The Steelers must try and circle the Wagons before a long trip if they want to salvage something this season.
