The home team Pittsburgh Steelers has begun their season with a 0-2 record. They opened up with a 16-9 home defeat to the Tennessee Titans and last week on Monday Night Football the Steelers fell 20-10 at the Cincinnati Bengals as a +7 point underdog. Pittsburgh has struggled big time for offense this season. They team allowed wide receiver Mike Wallace exit the team in free agency and have really no vertical deep threat receiver on their roster. The team is 30th in the NFL in scoring offense as they put up just 9 ½ points a game this season. They average an anemic 236 yards per game with only 37 yards rushing. Despite these really poor offensive numbers the Steelers are still holding their own defensively. The Bears are a fortunate 2-0 on the year as the team can easily be 0-2 after two come from behind victories to begin the season. In week one the Bears fell behind 21-10 in the second half to the Cincinnati Bengals only to outscore Cincinnati 14-0 in the final 22 ½ minutes of the game to come away with a three point victory at home. They played their second consecutive home game last week as they outlast Minnesota 31-30 as a -6 point favorite last week. The Bears were down 30-24 but Jay Cutler completes a 16 yard pass to Martellus Bennett with ten seconds remaining to earn the victory.
