Checking the Numbers: Steelers-Bears Game

Here is a statistical analysis that I wrote on the game. Small excerpt below. On Sunday afternoon, the Pittsburgh Steelers and Chicago Bears met for a game in which the Steelers were considered by many to be heavy favorites. However, there also those who called this a must-win game for the Bears, already in this young season. As we now know, the Bears won a hard-fought, close game, but how did each team look compared to what we would expect statistically? As I did with a few games last week, here I wanted to look at this game from my own analytical perspective.
