The conundrum this past weekend in the NFL made for some new names popping up in this week’s article.

Highlights from each league

Originals League: What’s COOKin Good Looking had a spectacular week topping the league with 167.30 points. QB Tom Brady (Patriots) scored her a cool 56.80 points, along with teammate WR Brandin Cooks (Patriots) scoring 30+ points. In second place is Bongs Over Brussels Sprouts with 160.63 points. Her top performers being QB Kirk Cousins (Redskins) 47.53 points and RB Kareem Hunt (Chiefs) 29.30 points.

Halifax Hurricanes is next with 133.92 points. Offensive threats QB Russell Wilson and WR Doug Baldwin from the Seattle Seahawks combined to give her 55 points. WR Sammy Watkins (new LA Rams acquisition) provided 25.60 points.

Chicago Bears Win in OT, But the Call is Still Out for Trubisky

Official Chicago Bears Fan Reporter

Bears 23, Steelers 17 (OT)

This was one of those matchups that was a no-brainer when it came to winning; every single sports media outlet had Steelers pegged to win.  Against an elite passer such as Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger, there was a doubt that the Chicago Bears secondary could stop him. But the Steelers didn’t quite understand the dual threat of Bears running backs Jordan Howard and Tarik Cohen. Together, they masterfully carved up the Steelers defense with precision and grit.

Howard rushed for 138 yards on 23 carries and two touchdowns, the latter in a 19-yard sprint in overtime to seal the deal. Cohen, Howard’s partner in crime, rushed for 78 yards on 12 carries. Another rookie that emerged was tight end Adam Shaheen, who not only pulled in his first TD but ran alongside Howard in the overtime hustle, blocking to keep his lane free.

Chicago Bears-Pittsburgh Steelers: Fans Weigh in on Sunday’s Matchup

By Wanda Wiedman / @WandaW63

The Pittsburgh Steelers (2-0) will head to Soldier Field to make it a 3-0 start against the Chicago Bears (0-2), who look to overcome a horrendous outing last week against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.  Though sports media networks and sports writers have given their opinion and assessment of this matchup, it seems only right to ask fans how they feel about their team in this game.

To share their opinion on these two teams is Bear Fan extraordinaire and Editor at Windy City Gridiron, Lester Wilfong Jr., and Raymond Vega, Los Angeles Sheriff and Steelers fan.

Since the game is being hosted in Chicago, let’s start with Lester.

Q:  Lester, as an Editor for WindyCityGridiron.com you try to be objective. But through the eyes and heart of a fan, did you expect the Bears to start off the season 0-2?
L: As much as I thought the Bears would be an improved team over a year ago, I still had them opening up with a loss to Atlanta and a loss to the Bucs. Atlanta is the defending NFC Champ, and Tampa Bay was a 9-7 team last year with some good, young talent. I didn’t expect them to look as lost last week, however. Unfortunately for us Bears’ fans, this team may be looking at another double-digits in the loss column.
