One week after dropping a heartbreaker at home to the defending NFC champion Atlanta Falcons, John Fox’s squad turned over the ball four times in a 29-7 loss to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Combined with last season’s dismal showing, the Bears are a disappointing 3-15 since the start of 2016 and have lost six in a row. On the other hand, the Steelers have won nine straight regular-season contests dating back to last season. All told, Pittsburgh is 11-1 in its last dozen outings.
The Bears want to run Jordan Howard, but the Steelers are going to have eight or nine in the box like previous defenses. Throwing passes in the flat to Tarik Cohen won’t keep anyone off the line of scrimmage. It will only fuel Pittsburgh’s desire to blitz. The running game may have to alter its preferred slow-developing outside run blocking scheme to try to punch holes for quick gainers inside against a blitzing defense.
On defense, the team is going to do what they have done all season. Smother the run game and tee off on the quarterback. The Bears have running backs Jordan Howard and Tarik Cohen to try and keep the Steelers’ defense off balance. Look for the linebackers to key the run game and allow the defensive line to attack quarterback Mike Glennon.
