The Chicago Bears will take on the Pittsburgh Steelers on Sunday Night Football in week 3 of the NFL 2013 regular season tonight in what should be an exciting match up for fans.
The Bears have gotten off to a perfect start to the new season, winning both their opening games, and they will want to continue that run today and make it three straight victories.
The Sunday Night Football game will start at 8.30 p.m. ET and can be watched online through live stream (details below).
The Bears come into this match up with a record of 2-0, having defeated Cincinnati 24-21 in their opening game of the season.
Then last week they gained the narrowest of wins against Minnesota in a dramatic 31-30 game.
Tonight the Bears go on the road for the first time to face Pittsburgh, who themselves are struggling and are desperate to gain a first win of the season.
The Steelers have only scored 19 points in their opening two games, and that has proven too little. If they cannot get on the scoreboard more then they will be in for a long, tough season.
In the opening week the Steelers were defeated by Tennessee 9-16, and then in week 2 they succumbed to Cincinnati 10-20.
They could struggle to contain Jay Cutler and co, who will be looking to pile on the pressure for the Bears. Cutler so far this season has completed 48 throws from 71 attempts for 534 yards and five touchdowns.
Brandon Marshall and Martellus Bennett have been top target men for him, with Marshall receiving 15 for 217 yards and two touchdowns, and Bennett receiving 10 for 125 yards and three touchdowns.
Where as the Steelers have struggled to score, the Bears have been scoring freely. They are averaging 27.5 points per game so far which is the fourth best in the league.
It is doubtful whether the Steelers will be able to contain the Bears' offense and they could be in for a rough night tonight.
