Seattle Seahawks at Chicago Bears

Otherwise, though, the Bears terrorized Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson on the same night they honored former linebacker Brian Urlacher at halftime.

The four-time Pro Bowler possesses a strong arm and the athleticism to keep plays alive with his feet. Leonard Floyd will have a critical role in this game in helping to contain Wilson in the pocket. He rushed for just five yards on two carries and was sacked six times in the game. "He's one of the most risky quarterbacks in the league when you think about the things he's been able to accomplish throughout his whole career", Mack said.

"It's going to be an interesting challenge for us".

After the Denver game the Seattle Times ran the headline, "Best game ever by a Seahawks punter?"

Dickson, from Sydney's Sutherland Shire, became the first player in National Football League history to boot six or more punts for an average of 59-plus yards in last week's debut against the Denver Broncos. But football is a 60-minute game for a reason and Green Bay quarterback Aaron Rodgers led an epic comeback in the second half on one leg.

"We had done a lot of homework on it", Carroll said. "You have to work hand-in-hand with your defense".

From this point, it seemed a question of how many more the seven-time champions would add, but some gilt-edged chances were missed.

Seahawks defensive tackle Quinton Jefferson and offensive tackle Duane Brown stayed off the field during the national anthem, something they did in the opener and preseason.

(3) What will Mack do for an encore following a full week of practice?

Mack, who landed with Chicago after a blockbuster trade with Oakland in September, had a strip-sack in the first half and consistently pressured Wilson in another dominant performance. The Bears have Khalil Mack but Seattle might not have anyone that can block him. He said this month has "been very hard". The last player to do that in a game was Mack himself, in Week 12 of the 2016 season against the Carolina Panthers.

Bobby Wagner was declared out for the game on Monday night with an apparent groin injury that was suffered in the Denver game, which only adds to the linebacker issues for Seattle. They tried an onside kick and failed, and the Bears took a knee to seal their first win.

If Seattle can emerge with a win, it will be 1-1 heading into a stretch when they play two of three games at CenturyLink Field.

Dickson repeatedly punted the Seahawks out of their own territory and pinned the Broncos near their end zone.
