Bears at Steelers final score: Chicago defense leads team to 40-23 win over Pittsburgh

The Chicago Bears went in to Heinz Field on Sunday Night Football and handed the Pittsburgh Steelers their third loss of the season in as many weeks. Chicago jumped out to an early 17 point lead, but the Steelers were able to charge back. However, turnovers were the difference and the Bears continued their unbeaten streak to start the season with a 40-23 win.

Chicago’s defense forced six turnovers, including a 38-yard interception return for a touchdown by Major Wright and a 42-yard fumble return for a score thanks to Julius Peppers.

If there is any silver lining for the Steelers and their fans, it is that the offense finally was able to put up some points and showed some major improvements.

Steelers wide receiver Antonio Brown was the offensive star of the game with nine catches for 196 yards and two touchdowns, but it wasn’t enough as the Steelers came up short.

Chicago’s defense is a championship level unit, while their offense is finally picking up the slack from recent years. This is a scary looking team that could be a major force in the NFC, but they are preparing to enter a tough stretch of their schedule.
