We have one heck of a ballgame oat Heinz Field to wrap up Sunday’s full day of NFL action. The Pittsburgh Steelers pulled within one score after a beautiful one-handed touchdown grab by Antonio Brown, but the Bears put together an impressive drive of their own that was sparked by a huge hit delivered by quarterback Jay Cutler.
Cutler was scrambling for a first down when he was face to face with Steelers defensive back Robert Golden and he decided to lower his shoulder and plow through the defender instead of giving himself up and going for the slide.
If Cutler would have slid, he may have come up short of the first down.
Instead, Cutler ran through Golden and picked up the first. It was a big momentum builder for the Bears.

Chicago went on to score a touchdown with a beautiful catch by Earl Bennett to extend their lead to ten, before Julius Peppers took the ball away from Ben Roethlisberger and took it back for the dagger.
