The game was mainly a defensive affair, as the Bears lead 10-7 going into the half, and ultimately pulled away with a Prince Amukamara pick-six to make it 24-10. A Seahawks garbage time touchdown made it look closer than it really was in the end.

Matt Nagy’s home debut went about as well as anticipated. The Bears again scored on a furious opening drive, and didn’t trail at any point in the game. While the Bears had to hold off a late Seahawks comeback attempt, this time the defense stood strong and came out on top.

There were plenty of positives in the game, which we’ll dive deeper into in a bit. Long story short, the offense had its struggles, but the defense looked every bit of the top-five unit that it is on paper.

After last week’s heartbreaking loss, the Bears are now 1-1, defeating the Seahawks under the lights on Monday night. Another blown-lead would’ve been demoralizing for the Bears, so this one feels especially good after last week.
