He was sacked six times throughout the game, pushing Seattle's allowed sacks total to 12 - the most in the National Football League through two games.
As for fantasy impact, Bears' QB Mitch Trubisky ended up with 200 yards and 2 TDS, while Russell Wilson ended with 2 TDs himself, but with 226 yards.
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. He has strung together 19 fourth-quarter comebacks and 23 game-winning drives in his career and last season led the league with 19 final-frame touchdowns.
The Seahawks tried to show from the start that they were serious about establishing the run a week after they struggled to do so. He pressed it and got going.
As for the Seahawks, faced with a stiff assignment of a road game in Mile High Stadium in Denver to open up, they traded punches with their hosts - the lead changing hands several times over the course of the four quarters - before the Broncos ultimately won out 27-24, courtesy of a Case Keenum strike to Demaryius Thomas. And if we can do that - which, I don't think we're far off by any means - I think the margin of error is really, really small. That's growth right there and that makes me happy to know that he understands that.
"It was definitely too little, too late", Lockett said after the game.
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.
The sample size is still quite small, but there is one thing for sure in the first two games of the Matt Nagy era: There's going to be some drama. It sucked to be able to watch. "We want to build something here that is going to be remembered".
Seattle capped the scoring when rookie tight end Will Dissly caught a 2-yard touchdown with 14 seconds left. Seattle gained 1 on six total offensive plays in the entire third quarter.
As a outcome, Wilson once again found himself playing the role of tackling dummy with minimal support, as the Bears teed off on him for a total of five sacks in the first half.
The Seahawks, to be fair, were playing very short-handed with receiver Doug Baldwin and linebackers Bobby Wagner and K.J. Wright leading the list of injured players. "I've told him that from the start and so I'll never back away from that". (Fluker), all those guys have a chance to come back next week and we need them.
