Winner: Prince Amukamara

Prince Amukamara is a solid starting cornerback in the NFL.

He’s by no means a Pro-Bowler, but he’s no veteran journeyman. However, Monday night was a huge boost of confidence for him.

Amazingly, his fourth-quarter pick-six was his second pick in 41 games — pretty unbelievable, especially for someone with a solid reputation like Amukamara.

Even more so, Amukamara did a spectacular job of keeping Seahawks wide receivers in check. Kyle Fuller handed Tyler Lockett most of the night, leaving Amukamara with the task of guarding former Bears wide Brandon Marshall.

Prince shut Marshall down, holding him to just four catches for 44 yards. While the Seahawks’ offense was banged up heading into the game, the job done by Amukamara and his fellow members of the Bears secondary was crucial in clinching the win on Monday.

Last week’s meltdown was largely in part due to the secondary’s inability to either A. defend the deep ball or B. make an open-field tackle. On Monday night, the secondary managed to do both. Amukamara was right in the middle of it.

After 41 games with just one pick, Monday night’s pick-six was massive for both the Bears and the confidence of Prince Amukamara. On a defense full of winners, Amukamara might’ve been the biggest.
