The Chicago Bears have a big-time defense

What a performance by the defense! They really did a nice job of limiting the Steelers’ offense and bailed out Glennon several times.

Roethlisberger only had 235 yards passing, while Bell only had 61 yards rushing.  While Brown did have receptions for 110 yards and a touchdown, he did not have any of those explosive game-breaking plays that really kill the confidence of a defense. That is an outstanding job by the much-improved defense of the Chicago Bears.

Bryce Callahan was able to run free on a corner blitz and force Roethlisberger to fumble, which was recovered by Akiem Hicks. That is now two straight weeks that the defense has forced a turnover, which is a great sign considering how much trouble they had doing it last season.

I thought they did a great job pressuring Roethlisberger and bottling up Bell. The secondary was awesome, too. I hope this game put an end to the narrative that the Chicago Bears do not have a good secondary.

Kyle Fuller, Prince Amukamara, Cooper and Callahan were great in coverage. Eddie Jackson continues to impress at safety. It is worth mentioning that Quintin Demps left the game with an injury, but Adrian Amos looked good in his place.

The Chicago Bears defense faces the tough task of facing Aaron Rodgers, next week. They will need to play as well as they did today in coverage. This means that they cannot miss their assignments or give the receivers room to operate when Rodgers scrambles.

The Chicago Bears’ defensive line has a chance to dominate the Green Bay Packers’ offensive line, due to the injuries the Packers have. Packers’ left tackle David Bakhtiari did not play against the Cincinnati Bengals, while right tackle Bryan Bulaga and guard Lane Taylor left the game with injuries.
