Things have not been going well this season for the Pittsburgh Steelers. In the first quarter of their Sunday night game they have already surrendered 17 points and find themselves trailing 17-0.

The Chicago Bears have already capitalized on a Ben Roethlisberger fumble with a Matt Forte touchdown. Forte had another big run on the next Bears possession that set up a 1 yard touchdown run by Michael Bush on 4th and goal.

The Steelers have struggled in all facets of the offensive game this year. They have the fewest rushing yards of any Steelers team after the first 2 games in over 80 years. Their offensive line has been decimated with injuries, and they chose to not pursue Mike Wallace in the offseason and it now looks like their receiving core lacks playmakers.

Spotting the Bears 17 early points is not going to help in preventing the team from falling to 0-3. They absolutely have to put some points on the board before half time or this game may slip away quickly.
