For the first time since 1995, the Pittsburgh Steelers come to Chicago and encounter a Bears team lacking their greatest weapon, big play middle linebacker Brian Urlacher.
How can the Bears compensate for losing a middle linebacker who has the size of a defensive end and speed of a safety? It's up to Hunter Hillenmeyer to replace him, but they would like to see their offense pick up some of the slack.
That means Jay Cutler bouncing back from a four-interception start. Cutler's only game against the Steelers was a success, a 31-28 victory in 2007 over the Steelers. The Bears need him to duplicate that day he had for Denver in order to offset the efforts of Ben Roethlisberger.
The Steelers are favored by three points in this 3 p.m. matchup.
