Every year, the Pittsburgh Steelers play at least one very bad game, losing a trap game they should have otherwise won. Hopefully, Sunday’s result in Chicago is Mike Tomlin’s team getting that loss out of the way early.

No one in the world thought the Bears were going to beat the Steelers, yet here we are. Chicago led for most of the game, controlled things late and managed to stay out of its own way long enough to figure things out in overtime.

The very idea of the Bears dragging the Steelers to overtime was unfathomable, let alone Chicago winning. Mike Glennon only threw for 101 yards and there were mistakes all over the map — like a Bears player celebrating before he scored a touchdown and fumbling the ball away.

Despite all this, the Bears came out of Sunday with a win and it seems a little overdue. They played the Falcons to the finish in Week 1 and should have beat them on a goal line push. If that had happened, there’s a very real possibility the Bears are 2-1 right now. But it’s how garbage they played in Week 2 against the Buccaneers that makes this even more shocking. Chicago isn’t a good team, but then again they just beat the Steelers so who’s to say?
