It was a heartbreaking loss for the Chicago Bears in Week 1 when they allowed Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers to erase a 20-point deficit to win 24-23. However, the Bears look to have some excellent players, including Khalil Mack, which should help them rebound at home.
Khalil Mack whacked havoc in the first half-time against the Packers, becoming the first player since 1982 to have a strip-sack, fumble recovery, interception and interception returned for a touchdown in a single half. He should again play well against a terrible Seattle offensive line.
Once again, it looks like it will be up to Russell Wilson to carry the Seattle Seahawks this season. Wilson did all he could against Denver in Week 1, but six sacks and two picks proved too costly for Seattle who fell to 0-1 to start their 2018 campaign.
Seattle again looks like it has one of the worst offensive lines in football, which will do Wilson no favours in this game. Also, with Doug Baldwin out for Seattle’s Week 2 game, the Seahawks will need to rely too much on inconsistent wide receivers and a non-existent running game.
It is moderately surprising how little these two teams have played each other over the last 15 years. Including playoffs, Seattle and Chicago have played ten times since 2003 and only twice since drafting Russell Wilson. Seattle is 2-0 with Wilson at quarterback, winning by six points in 2012 and 26-0 in 2015.
