Chicago Bears' defense leads victory over Seahawks

Chicago Bears' Defense Too Much For Seattle Seahawks On MNF: Twitter Reacts

Bears hold on against Seahawks

The 34-year-old wideout totalled 46 yards and a touchdown off three grabs on his Seattle debut, and now faces his former team.

On the offensive side of the ball, third-year runner Jordan Howard is the bell cow for the Bears, while the Seahawks will be hoping for a similar impact to Week One from veteran Brandon Marshall. "There's always going to be stuff we've got to improve on, and we know that, but you've got to enjoy these W's, and we definitely did".

Wilson wasn't able to do what he does best, drop back and make plays.

In the fourth quarter, with the Bears marching down field, Trubisky's short-memory, move-forward attitude paid off. Chicago had four sacks against the Packers. But three Seahawks penalties for 23 yards were a killer, and Mitch Trubisky capped the 10-play drive with a 3-yard touchdown pass to Trey Burton with 3:11 remaining in the first quarter.

Chicago (1-1) went three and out on the ensuing drive and punted the ball right back to Seattle. "[He's an] average quarterback", Seahawks defensive end Frank Clark told Eric Edholm of Pro Football Weekly.

Wilson and the offense got going in the fourth quarter, driving down the field to score on a great catch by Tyler Lockett in the back of the end zone, but just when Seattle looked like it was ready to start moving the ball, turnovers became a problem, with Prince Amukamara intercepting Wilson and returning it for a touchdown, and later with Wilson getting sacked and fumbling for a second turnover in as many possessions.

Russell Wilson connected on 22 of 36 passes for 226 yards, two touchdowns and one interception for Seattle (0-2).

"You can't even remember the last time Russ did that", Carroll said.

Coming up empty on the opening drive did Seattle no favors, however, as its tired defense needed all the help it can get with Wagner and Wright, rookie cornerback Tre Flowers and second-year safety Delano Hill all inactive.

Mychal Kendricks had one of Seattle's two sacks in his first game since he signed with the Seahawks on Friday.

The lackluster showing for Seattle's offense wasted a solid performance for its defense, led by two second-quarter interceptions for Shaquill Griffin. Kendricks pleaded guilty last week to insider trading charges, but he isn't expected to be sentenced in the case until January and the National Football League has yet to impose any discipline.

"I felt that we should make more plays against him", Clark said. "That being said, I plan on doing the most with it".

That's when the Seahawks' offense woke up. Carson rushed for 24 yards on his six carries, while Penny finally showed a little life but still finished with only 30 rushing yards. And if we can do that - which, I don't think we're far off by any means - I think the margin of error is really, really small. "We had a lot of fourth-quarter comebacks and I believe those are going to happen".
