Coach Matt Nagy is in the hot seat as the Bears try to get their first win since Week 5.
The Bears will be looking to break the Steelers’ three-game win streak and clinch their first win on the road since defeating the Raiders 20-9. Nagy will also return to the Chicago bench after passing the league’s COVID-19 protocols, though offensive coordinator Bill Lazor is expected to continue his play-calling responsibilities.
PLUS: Who is Khalil Herbert?
Rookie quarterback Justin Fields, coming off a game in which he rushed for 103 yards with a touchdown in his team’s 33-22 loss to the 49ers, is expected to rely on his running ability to help the team. offensive to gain momentum. The Bears will continue to use running back Khalil Herbert, who rushed for 72 yards last week. You will also have several scoring opportunities.
While the Bears’ offense improves throughout the season, Fields has consistently battled defenses who effectively pressure quarterbacks. To that end, Steelers linebacker TJ Watt leads the Steelers with 8.5 sacks, followed by Cameron Heyward with 2.5. It will be worth monitoring not only how Fields’ line protects him, but also how he performs in the face of pressure.
Steelers veteran quarterback Ben Roethlisberger is 0-3 in his last three games against the Bears. He will rely on rookie running back Najee Harris to dominate the Bears defense and potentially earn his first win against the Chicago franchise since 2005. During his 13-10 win against the Browns last week, Harris rushed for 92 yards on 26 carries with a touchdown.
