During Showtime's "Inside the NFL" on Friday, sportcasters Phil Simms and Cris Collinsworth shared their thoughts on the Bears and Steelers game as part of their Week 3 predictions.

Simms, who works alongside Jim Nantz on CBS games, is choosing the Steelers who have yet to win a game this season.

"The pass rush of the Chicago Bears has not been great so far this year," Simms said. "That is a grass field in Pittsburgh that always slows people down. That crowd will be crazy. I’m taking the Steelers.”

Although Collinsworth is unable to make a firm prediction due to his announcing of the game, he hinted that he's leaning toward the Bears on the road.

“Peanut Tillman and Tim Jennings are two of the most underrated cornerbacks in the game. They do not get the credit for what they’re able to do," Collinsworth said. "Jennings led the league in interceptions last year. Tillman is a guy who is a punch out artist…getting the ball out and all those things. Turnovers probably decide this game.”

Collinsworth will have the call with Al Michaels on Sunday night at 7:30 p.m. on NBC.
