QB Glennon Chalks Up Second Win vs. Steelers

Article excerpt

CHICAGO - Mike Glennon, Steelers killer?

The Chicago Bears quarterback has two victories in just three years. He quarterbacked the low-hanging fruit known as the Tampa Bay Buccaneers to a stunning 27-24 upset Sept. 28, 2014 in Heinz Field.

He did not win another game until Sunday, when he quarterbacked the Chicago Bears to a 23-17 overtime victory against the Steelers at Soldier Field.

The Steelers should hope they never see Glennon or Chicago again. They are 0-2 against Glennon, 1-13 in Chicago.

"Just finding a way to win against a really good football team is the goal every week," Glennon said.

His goal every week would probably be to play the Steelers.

Glennon did not have a great game. He threw an interception to J.J. Wilcox that set up a Steelers touchdown. He was 15 of 22 for just 101 yards and sacked twice. His one touchdown pass carried 2 yards.

LITTLE ACTION FOR HARRISON

Linebacker James Harrison got to play Sunday for the Steelers, but not much.

"Did I get in? I might have gotten in two or three plays," Harrison told a reporter. "We both must have missed it."

Harrison, the team's all-time sack leader who also led them a year ago, did not play at all in the previous game at home against Minnesota even though starter T.J. Watt left the game early with a groin injury.

Watt was scratched Sunday against the Bears because of the lingering injury and Anthony Chickillo started in his place and recorded his third sack.

But Harrison, 39, isn't just a pass-rushing outside linebacker. He also has been one of their best through the years at sealing the edge against the run.

"I could do that when I'm 60," Harrison said.

The Bears piled up most of their 220 yards rushing Sunday against the Steelers using the stretch play and running around end.

Might Harrison have helped in that endeavor?

"I don't know, man, I'm just doing what I'm asked. I don't think that might have been the case [able to help] because I'm on the sidelines."

BUSINESS IS BOOMIN'

Everyone was waiting to see how Antonio Brown would celebrate his first touchdown of the season. It came in the second quarter, on a 7-yard reception. …
