Tonight’s edition of Monday Night Football features two offenses trying to find their footing.

The Pittsburgh Steelers enter tonight’s game at 4-3, but the team has failed to hit the 30 point mark this season. Their victories can be attributed to their defense, but if the Steelers want to go on a playoff run in the AFC, their offense needs fixing. Ben Roethlisberger is certainly looking like a 39-year old quarterback, but a talented arsenal of Diontae Johnson, Chase Claypool, and Najee Harris provide the veteran with some help. The Steelers are looking to make it three-straight wins tonight.

On the opposite end of the spectrum, the Chicago Bears are losers of three-straight. The Justin Fields era of Bears football has had a rocky start, but there is plenty of blame to go around. The return of David Montgomery should help the offense, although rookie Khalil Herbert has thrived in his stead. The Bears have allowed a league-leading 30 sacks, so the offensive line needs to improve to give their rookie a shot.

Here’s how to watch tonight’s game:
