Five turnovers which allowed the Bears to score 23 points was the death blow for the Steelers Sunday night, as they fell to 0-3 with a 40-23 loss to the Bears.
The Steelers fell behind 17-0 in the first quarter, and while they cut the deficit to 27-23 in the fourth quarter, they never got the lead, and fell apart in the second half of the fourth quarter.
The team is now 0-3 for the first time since the 2000 season, a year in which they would win five straight after starting 0-3, and wound up 9-7.
It’s a far way away from that happening now, as this team is clearly not even close to being a contender in the AFC.
All the other AFC North teams won Sunday, meaning the Steelers control last place at 0-3 as they get ready to head to London to play the 0-3 Vikings.
Have at it Steeler Nation – how does the 2013 season get fixed? Or does it?
