The New York Giants were the last team to beat the Steelers on Monday Night. That was a 23-20 game back in October of 1991

The Steelers have won 19 straight games at home on Monday Night Football, a streak that dates back more than 30 years ago.

We are just 15 minutes away from kickoff , and ESPN's coverage has started from Heinze Field.

Look at Najee Harris showing the soft hands. Let me just remind you... he's a running back.

The Steelers taking the field with their color rush jerseys, and I must say seeing them on, I kind of like the COLOR RUSH jerseys

Pittsburgh going with the COLOR RUSH jerseys for their home Monday nighter.

Chicago going with the classic look for primetime.

According to Ceasars Sportsbook the Steelers are a 7 point favorite coming into tonight's game, with the Over/Under set at just 40 points.

The recent surge of good form for the Steelers in an accumulation of a number of things, but Najee Harris is having a fantastic stretch averageing almost 100 yards rushing in each of the last three wins for the Steelers had made Big Ben's job a whole lot easier.

The Bears meanwhile are on a nose dive out of the playoff picture after three straight losses, and will need to turn the tables if they want any chance of keeping up with the teams in the Wild Card hunt towards the second half of the season.

The Steelers have turned things around after a rough start to the season. Three straight wins have have Pittsburgh with a record above .500, and they are quickly climbing the standings in the AFC North

Hello everyone and welcome to Monday Night Football where the Pittsburgh Steelers take a three game win streak in to Heinze Field as they host the Chicago Bears to cap off Week 9 of the NFL season.

The Steelers have shaken off a stagnant start to their season, and it seems like the Steelers are course correcting as we approach the second half of the season. Big Ben came under fire for his early season performances, but has righted the ship, throwing five touchdowns and no interceptions in his last four games.

The Steelers defense has also shown up over the course of the last month. They haven’t allowed a team more than 20 points in their last three games.

The Bears are going the opposite direction of the Steelers. They have lost their last three and they are having trouble finding any consistency with first year quarterback Justin Fields. The rookie QB has just two touchdown passes and five interceptions over the course of the last three games.

The Bears defense is also giving up over 30 points a game over the last three weeks. They will need to show up and help their rookie quarterback if they want to stop he bleeding tonight.

Kickoff from Heinze Field is set for 8:15 p.m. ET.
