Three straight wins have put the Pittsburgh Steelers back in the competitive race for the AFC North, but they might not have everything in their own way when they host Chicago at Heinz Field.
The total points line has been set at 39 and that makes it difficult to argue for the Steelers, who will almost give up a converted touchdown to the Bears on the spread.
Much of that reluctance centers on quarterback Ben Roethlisberger and not necessarily just because Mike Tomlin’s side have failed to cover each of the last six occasions they have been favorites at home.
The 39-year-old has been limited to training this week with hip and pectoral issues and a problem with his throwing shoulder was also cited in Saturday’s injury report.
He’s put in strong performances in their last three games – throwing four touchdown passes and no interceptions – but Tomlin’s comments that there are “things to deal with” don’t inspire confidence.
The Bears have lost to Green Bay, Tampa Bay and San Francisco in their last three outings, but there were encouraging signs from quarterback Justin Fields to the Niners.
It was his best game as a professional with 175 yards and a touchdown in the air and 103 rushing yards that included a score, which should have boosted his endless confidence.
Khalil Herbert also ran for 72 yards and they can do some damage against a Steelers running defense that isn’t as strong as it used to be.
The Steelers’ recent results may look good, but it still took them overtime to overtake a Seattle led by Geno Smith, so Chicago should be able to stay that close.
Pittsburgh’s offense was lousy producing just 15 points in their win over Cleveland last week and it’s hard to see them playing in the style required to wow the Bears.
