After losing three straight games, the Steelers have turned the tables and are on a three-game winning streak. They currently sit at 4-3 and are in third place in the AFC North. Their next two opponents are the 3-5 Bears and 0-8 Lions, both games are at Heinz Field, as well. So, the Steelers have a really good chance to be 6-3 before heading to Los Angeles to face the Chargers in Week 11.


The Bears have lost three straight and have struggled offensively with rookie quarterback Justin Fields under center. However, Fields rushed over 100 yards and displayed some improvement in Sunday's loss to the 49ers.


According to Oddsshark.com, the Steelers are 6.5-point favorites against the Bears, and the over/under is 40 points. The Bears are 3-7 against the spread in their last 10 games, and the total has gone under in six of Chicago's last seven games. The Bears are 9-1 straight up in their last 10 games against an opponent in the AFC North.


The under is 6-1 in the Steelers' last seven games, and Pittsburgh is 1-4 against the spread in its last five home games.


The Steelers are 7-19-1 all-time against the Bears. Surprisingly, Mike Tomlin is 0-3 in his career against Chicago. The Steelers haven't beat the Bears since 2005, which was the iconic Jerome Bettis running over Brian Urlacher for a touchdown in the snow game at Heinz Field.


The Bears and the Saints are the only teams that Tomlin is winless against in his career.
