The Bears and Steelers will meet during Sunday Night Football in Week 3 of the NFL season. The inter-conference battle features two teams that seemingly are headed in different directions. The Bears are riding high in the NFC North at 2-0 after impressive wins over the Bengals and Vikings. On the other side, the Steelers are coming of back-to-back losses to the Titans and Bengals, and have yet to put up more than 10 points in a game.
The two teams' records have likely played a role in expert predictions in Week 3. CBS Sports' group of experts are favoring the Bears in this matchup by a vote of 5-3 against the spread. With the spread not taken into account, the numbers stay the same, with the experts voting 5-3. CBS's Pete Prisco was one of the few experts to go with the Steelers. Here is what he had to say about the game:
The Steelers are in a must-win situation. They can't go 0-3 and hope to make the playoffs. They've struggled on offense and need to get it going, but the Bears are tough on defense. I see the Steelers' defense winning this one. They will force some key turnovers. Steelers get victory No. 1.
The Steelers host the Bears in Pittsburgh during Sunday Night Football at 8:30 p.m. ET.
