Chicago Bears at Pittsburgh Steelers
The Pittsburgh Steelers know how they need to win this season. We saw it last week.
It's not with Ben Roethlisberger peppering his receivers with targets and throwing for 5,000 yards anymore. Roethlisberger is on the back nine of his career, maybe even on the 18th hole, and the Steelers don't have the offensive line to protect a 39-year-old quarterback anyway. The Steelers had a grind-it-out 15-10 win at the Cleveland Browns last week. That works.
Between the Steelers offense and the Bears offense, we're in for what should be a rough Monday night game. The Bears are 7-point underdogs at BetMGM. The over/under is a very low 39.
The Bears (31st in points, 32nd in yards) don't really know how to generate offense with rookie quarterback Justin Fields. Fields ran it more last week and had 100 yards rushing, and he'll get better as his confidence grows. But it's not like he'll light up a good Steelers defense. He's just not there as a passer yet.
The Steelers (26th in points, 24th in yards) might not be able to pull away though. Their wins have come by seven, eight, three and five points. It's not an offense built to score much. They'll pound it on the ground with Najee Harris and let the defense win a close game.
The Bears aren't a strong play, but it seems like this game will be low-scoring, ugly and close. Therefore, take the touchdown and the underdog. Better yet, grab the under of 39.
