Bears vs. Steelers: News and updates leading into Week 3

5 reasons the Steelers can beat the Bears

A few reasons why the Pittsburgh Steelers can beat the Chicago Bears on Sunday Night Football.

Bears vs. Steelers: Time, TV, odds and more

The Steelers are three-point underdogs against Chicago on Sunday Night Football. Here's how you can watch Sunday night's game.

Steelers to use four-safety look against Bears

In an effort to create confusion as well as counter the size of Chicago's seam and vertical passing threats, the Steelers will use more of the four-safety look they employed against Cincinnati. Not all four of them will be playing in the secondary.

Cold winds of panic chill the Nation on Checkdown

Cold winds of panic flow through the streets of Steelers Nation as the team's struggles continue.

Miller tempering his own expectations in return

Steelers 2012 team MVP Heath Miller doesn't think it's realistic to expect midseason form when he returns to the field for the first time since Week 16. But just about anything he can provide will benefit the Steelers' anemic offense.

Chances of Bell's debut much higher now

Sunday will mark the return of tight end Heath Miller, playing for the first time since Week 16 of 2012. It may also mark the debut of Steelers running back Le'Veon Bell.

Haley denies altercation with Antonio Brown

After the hoopla started because of Ed Bouchette's anonymous source noting that Todd Haley and Antonio Brown had a bad altercation during Sunday night, the Steelers' offensive coordinator denies it took place.

Cortez Allen out for Week 3 vs. Bears

The Steelers will be without their starting cornerback for the second straight week.

Expectations for Sunday night in Pittsburgh

The Bears are 2-0 and the Steelers are 0-2. Is there any chance for Roethlisberger & co. to pull this one out before they head to England?

Beachum could replace Adams or Gilbert

Steelers offensive coordinator didn't say either tackle, Mike Adams on the left or Marcus Gilbert on the right, wouldn't get the start, but after their combined performances in Weeks 1 and 2, neither should feel secure if this trend continues.

Haley: 'I'm not happy with anything right now'

Steelers offensive coordinator Todd Haley isn't exactly pleased as punch with the start to the 2013 season. Look for the Steelers to shake things up offensively Sunday night against Chicago.

Bears vs. Steelers: More outside zone in Week 3

Any would be an increase from the last two weeks. The Steelers spent time and effort implementing an outside zone running scheme that apparently depended almost entirely on Maurkice Pouncey.

Miller remembers injury but wants to be on field

Steelers TE Heath Miller is preparing for his return to the field in Week 3 against Chicago. While he'll remember his torn ACL, when he gets into the game, he'll just be playing football, writes Dale Grdnic.

Let Roethlisberger be "Big Ben"

Jerome Bettis came out on Tuesday and said the Steelers should put the offense into the hands of franchise quarterback Ben Roethlisberger. What's the worst that can happen? Who knows. Maybe the best that can happen is an improved offensive attack.

NFL Week 3 picks

The Steelers are home underdogs in a primetime game against Chicago in Week 3.

Ben feels Wheaton will play more vs. Bears

Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger said to expect the presence of rookie WR Markus Wheaton a bit more in Pittsburgh's Week 3 game against the Chicago Bears.

Bell back on field, won't rush to games

It's encouraging the Steelers' rookie Bell is back on the field, but it doesn't appear he's going to go out of his way to play in Week 3.

Steelers cut Shayne Graham, sign Isaiah Green

An expected move, the Steelers will look to play cornerbacks in a more traditional role Sunday night against Chicago.

Miller to practice fully this week

Steelers coach Mike Tomlin warns he won't come out of a phone booth with a cape on, but odds seem likely he will return to the field in Week 3 against Chicago.

Bell will do individual drills this week

The Steelers' second round draft pick will take a step closer to returning to the field this week.
