Wilson, Seahawks offense struggle against Bears

Wilson, Seahawks offense struggle against Bears

That opened up the passing game some as Jaron Brown made a 10-yard catch on a Russell Wilson pass on third-and-8 for another Seahawks first down, but Wilson was sacked on the next third down, leading to a fairly normal punt by Michael Dickson - which is to say it traveled 40 yards and pinned the Bears at their own 4.

It appeared the Bears were ready to put away the Seahawks early in the fourth when Trubisky led a well-balanced 66 yard drive that finished with his second touchdown pass of the night, this time to Anthony Miller, which gave the Bears a 17-3 lead.

Chicago took that favorable field position and pushed all the way to Seattle's 7, and while Justin Coleman almost picked off Trubisky at the goal line after he was pressured on third down, the Bears' Cody Parkey kicked a 25-yard field goal to extend their lead to 10-0.

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.

The Seahawks tried to show from the start that they were serious about establishing the run a week after they struggled to do so. "You got to be able to go for it".

The Chiefs were farther from the end zone, but Kelce made a flying leap from the 5-yard line to get the score. The defense had moments where the looked elite, yet in the second half yielded just enough to let their opponent back in the game.

Moussa Diaby rounded off the scoring on 84 minutes with a close range strike at the after post after a scuffed shot from Cavani. Today we were without Neymar and Kylian and I'm happy to have used players that were here during the worldwide break.

"They weren't characteristic at all", coach Pete Carroll said of Wilson's fourth quarter miscues. "I felt like their defence beat us. I'm normally really optimistic, you guys know that, but I really believe that".

Carroll said this in full when asked why Carson disappeared Monday night in what was a one-score game for all but a couple minutes, until Wilson's killer interception Bears cornerback Prince Amukamara returned for a touchdown midway through the fourth quarter to put Chicago ahead 24-10 and effectively end the game.

"I can always do better", Marshall said. "We want to build something here that is going to be remembered".

"The thing we're learning in this process is we are on a next-play mentality and I'm happy with how he handled himself from play one to the end of that fourth quarter", Nagy said, via The Athletic. I think we were still able to do that. He passed to Will Dissly for a 2-yard touchdown with 14 seconds to go, but the Seahawks' onside kick was unsuccessful and the Bears ran out the clock. He said he trumped Schottenheimer's play plan in that third quarter. Roquan Smith added seven total tackles while Danny Trevathan tallied eight tackles and two sacks. Fluker and receiver Doug Baldwin due to injuries, and Baldwin's absence was particularly noticeable.

Next week, the Bears head out to Arizona to take on the Cardinals, while the Seahawks return home for a matchup against the Dallas Cowboys next Sunday.
