Steelers vs. Bears: Who the experts are taking in Week 9
The Steelers head back home to host the Chicago Bears as they hope to stack some wins.
The Steelers come back to Heinz Field after a huge win against the Cleveland Browns. That road victory brought back their season. It was a tough game but a victory, in the end, is all that counts.
It was not a pretty win against the Browns in Week 8 but it allowed for this team to win and still work on getting better. The offense still struggled at times and questionable play calls led to a closer score. The defense held strong and the team was able to do just enough to get to a winning record.
The Browns were playing with an injury-riddled roster but the NFL stops for no player so that cannot be an acceptable excuse. It is always the next man up in this league and the Steelers were able to take advantage of that. They had to overcome obstacles of their own, like being without their kicker, Chris Boswell.
Now the attention goes to Week 9 as Pittsburgh will play host to the Chicago Bears. This is a game that the black and gold are highly favored in. They have struggled in the past to win games that they’re expected to win. That seems to be fading as time goes by with the current state of this franchise.
They are a playoff-hopeful team with a lot of obstacles in front of them during their remaining schedule. They have one of the toughest stretches of games left to play when you compare them to other teams in the NFL. The experts have the Steelers favored in this one but will their predictions become reality? It seems more likely than not.
