Chicago Bears' defense leads victory over Seahawks

The Bears' defense had a similar start last week in Green Bay, recording four quarterback sacks and nine pressures through two quarters before ultimately squandering a 20-point lead and losing 24-23.

The Seattle Seahawks couldn't get their offense going until it was too late, as mistakes and a sputtering offense added up to hand them a 24-17 loss to the Chicago Bears on Monday Night Football and drop them to 0-2 on the season.

Wilson is now the first quarterback to be sacked 11 times within the first two games of the season since Chad Henne was in 2014.

Instead it was first-round pick Rashaad Penny getting the majority of the tailback snaps in the second half - he gained eight carries for 28 yards in the second half to finish with 30 yards on 10 carries for the game while Carson had 24 yards on six carries, all coming in the first two quarters.

The magic of Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson was zapped by the power of Mack, as his performance on the road was underwhelming. But the defense forced Seattle to go three plays and a punt yet again - the fourth time in five possessions.

Danny Trevathan then stripped Wilson with his second sack of the game.

Fortunately for a Bears offense that appears to have a long way to go and a lot of growing pains to endure, it has a defense that can compensate for a lot of its shortcomings - and score touchdowns as well. But Seahawks cornerback Justin Coleman missed an opportunity for an interception at the goal line on third-and-6 from the 7, leading to a 25-yard field goal by Cody Parkey and a 10-0 lead at halftime.

Early in the fourth quarter, Trubisky faked a handoff to Howard and rolled left before hitting rookie Anthony Miller for a 10-yard touchdown that staked the Bears to a 17-3 lead with 10:13 remaining.

Wilson connected on 22 of 36 passes for 226 yards with two TDs, one interception and an 86.1 rating.

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.
