OUR PREDICTION: The Bears were horrendous on the road last Sunday in Tampa, although that was mostly because of their offense. Despite being 0-2, Chicago has showed improvements on defense, mainly along its defensive line. If the Bears can bracket Antonio Brown like they doubled-up on Julio Jones in Week 1, they have a shot to keep things close. Plus, the Bears are allowing just 90.5 rushing yards per game through two weeks, which is key when facing a Steelers' rushing attack that features Le'Veon Bell. Yes, the Bears are bad. But there's still plenty of value in taking them as a home dog today.
