Bears vs. Steelers final score, results: Steelers hang on for home victory after Bears missed field goal

Bears kicker Cairo Santos ended his regular season field goal streak and allowed the Steelers to hang on for a win.

Santos missed a 65-yard attempt with four seconds on the clock that gave the Steelers a 29-27 victory over the Bears, extending Pittsburgh’s winning streak to four consecutive games. Although Justin Fields led the Bears to score 21 points in the fourth quarter, the Pittsburgh defense applied consistent pressure to sack the rookie quarterback three times and force an interception.

Fields ended the matchup with 17 for 291 yards and a touchdown with an additional 45 rushing yards. His 7 completions on balls 15+ yards downfield are tied for the most by a Bears QB over the past 15 seasons, according to ESPN . He connected with Cole Kmet for 87 yards and found Darnell Mooney in the end zone to give the Bears their first lead of the night. However, the Bears were called for a season-high 12 penalties for 115 yards that cost them any scoring opportunities.

T.J. Watt and Cameron Heyward dominated on defense for the Steelers. Watt totaled seven tackles and brought down Fields three times while Heyward picked off a pass from the rookie quarterback. Minkah Fitzpatrick had a big hit on Fields and led the Steelers with eight tackles.

Steelers Chris Boswell also became the first player in NFL history to make two 50+ yard field goals, make a game-winning field goal and recover an opponent’s fumble all in the same game. With their fourth consecutive win against the Bears, the Steelers inch closer to leading the AFC North.
