Bears hold on against Seahawks

The biggest difference between Week 1 and Week 2 for the Bears?

Mack delivered another impressive performance in Week 2.

The Bears' seven inactive players featured only one injured man - safety DeAndre Houston-Carson, who is recovering from a broken forearm.

A defensive focus all week was to finish after the Week One collapse in Green Bay.

Nagy has reminded us for several weeks that the offense is a work in progress, and the Bears certainly have a defense that can cover up some mistakes as the quarterback comes along.

The Bears' defense made it 5-for-6 the next time Seattle got the ball, as the visitors managed just two yards on their obligatory three plays.

According to ESPN Stats & Information research, the Bears blitzed Wilson five times in the first half and pressured him on 37 percent of his dropbacks. Key playmakers in Seattle's defense, known as the Legion of Boom, weren't able to suit up for their first of five late-night matchups this year.

Griffin picked off Trubisky twice while Kendricks notched one of two Seattle sacks in the game. It ended up being a defense reminiscent of Seattle in its prime, with the help of Shaquill Griffin and newly-signed linebacker Mychal Kendricks making big-time plays.

The defense held Trubisky to 200 yards after letting Broncos quarterback Case Keenum rack up 329 in Week 1.

Even when Trubisky was intercepted on consecutive possessions in the second quarter, the defense didn't allow the Seahawks to take advantage or cut into their 7-0 lead.

Chicago Bears' Mitchell Trubisky #10 is congratulated by teammates after scoring a touchdown during the first quarter of a game against the Green Bay Packers at Lambeau Field on September 9, 2018 in Green Bay, Wisconsin.

Wilson has been known throughout his career as a player who is clutch in the fourth quarter.

The Seahawks' last 15 minutes were riddled with a pick-six and a fumble on back-to-back possessions. Mahomes will win any current conversation after his blistering start, with his 10 touchdown passes the most in National Football League history through two games.
