The Chicago Bears and the Pittsburgh Steelers are each trending in opposite directions this season.

The Bears lost their third game in a row on Sunday against the San Francisco 49ers, 33 to 22, and they are now three and five this year. The Steelers just knocked off the Cleveland Browns, 15 to 10, for their third consecutive victory, which pulled their record this season to four and three. Chicago travels to Pittsburgh next for Monday Night Football (November 8) and according to DraftKings Sportsbook the opening line is at +6.5 for the Bears, with the over/under at 40.

The Steelers started their 2021 campaign with an impressive win in Buffalo against the Bills, but three straight losses had many doubting the defending AFC North Division Champions. With their win on Sunday they dropped the Browns to fourth in their division at 4-4, and they now trail the 5-3 Baltimore Ravens by a game.

The Bears are a half game behind the 3-4 Minnesota Vikings in the NFC North, and both trail the 7-1 Green Bay Packers who are one of the hottest teams in the NFL right now.
