Khalil Mack had one of six sacks against Russell Wilson

 [url=https://www.theseahawksfanshop.com/Byron-Maxwell-Jersey]Byron Maxwell Color Rush Jersey[/url] , Prince Amukamara returned an interception 49 yards for a touchdown and the Chicago Bears beat the Seattle Seahawks 24-17 Monday night to give coach Matt Nagy his first career victory.Mack, who landed with Chicago after a blockbuster trade with Oakland in September, had a strip-sack in the first half and consistently pressured Wilson in another dominant performance.Amukamara jumped the route on a pass intended for Rashaad Penny near midfield for his first career touchdown, making it 24-10 with 6:37 left. It was his first interception since 2015 with the New York Giants.Danny Trevathan then stripped Wilson with his second sack of the game. The Bears’ Leonard Floyd recovered the fumble, and Chicago hung on after blowing a 20-point lead in a season-opening loss to a hobbled Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers.The Seahawks (0-2) lost for just the second time in nine Monday night games under coach Pete Carroll.Wilson has been sacked six times in each game this season. With the Bears applying constant pressure and his receivers struggling to get open, the four-time Pro Bowl quarterback completed 22 of 36 passes for 226 yards with two touchdowns and an interception.Chicago’s Mitchell Trubisky was 25 of 34 for 200 yards. The No. 2 overall pick in last year’s draft, Trubisky threw touchdown passes to Trey Burton on Chicago’s first possession and rookie Anthony Miller early in the fourth quarter. But he was also intercepted two times by Shaquill Griffin.The Bears presented longtime linebacker Brian Urlacher with his Ring of Excellence for being inducted into the Hall of Fame.The ceremony came after an ugly first half that saw Trubisky get picked off twice and Wilson get sacked five times. But the Bears managed to take a 10-3 lead to the locker room.Trubisky gave them a 7-0 lead when he shoveled to Trey Burton from the 3 on Chicago’s first possession, finishing a 96-yard drive. He also led a drive to the Seattle 7, only to throw two incomplete passes 鈥?one that should have been picked off by Justin Coleman 鈥?before Cody Parkey kicked a 25-yard field goal to make it 10-0 with just over a minute left in the half.The Seahawks didn’t score until Sebastian Janikowski nailed a 56-yard as the half ended.NATIONAL ANTHEMSeahawks defensive tackle Quinton Jefferson and offensive tackle Duane Brown stayed off the field during the national anthem, something they did in the opener and preseason.INJURIESBears: RB Tarik Cohen suffered an ankle injury. … DT Akiem Hicks walked off gingerly with two minutes left after he was hurt rushing the quarterback.UP NEXTSeahawks: Host Dallas on Sunday.Bears: Visit Arizona on Sunday.___ Over the past few days, we’ve gone through the Seattle Seahawks’ unrestricted free agents and restricted free agents, assessing who’s likely to be re-signed and who isn’t, and which tenders they may or may not receive from Seattle. Today we’ll wrap up Seahawks on expiring deals with the group of exclusive rights free agents. Here’s how Over The Cap defined ERFAs in a 2013 post:These players aren’t really free agents in any sense, unless their team chooses not to tender them. Seeing as there is no guaranteed money on an ERFA tender, there is zero risk in tendering an exclusive rights free agent, especially with rosters ballooning back up to 90 players. However, for the sake of clarity, let’s briefly go through Seattle’s exclusive rights free agents and their standing with the team.Tyler OttThere was a strange time [url=https://www.theseahawksfanshop.com/Sebastian-Janikowski-Jersey]Sebastian Janikowski Color Rush Jersey[/url] , following Clint Gresham’s release, where the long snapper position caused a bit of turbulence for the Seahawks. Ott stabilized the position and hasn’t missed a game during his two seasons in Seattle. There’s no reason to expect Ott to hit unrestricted free agency. Branden JacksonAfter spending some time on the practice squad in 2018, Jackson proved his worth by playing inside and outside along the defensive line for the Seahawks. At times, he has proven to be a dependable rotational player, and at the low cost of an ERFA tender, will be back in camp with Seattle. J.D. McKissicThe Seahawks must do a better job of getting McKissic involved with the offense, health permitting, in 2019. Despite touching the ball just three times in 2018, McKissic’s return is a no-brainer. Joey HuntWhen injuries hit the offensive line in 2018, Hunt, at times, was dressed on game day over Ethan Pocic. Whether that’s an endorsement of Hunt or an indictment of Pocic is anyone’s best guess. Hunt is familiar with the offense and at the very least, can stick with the team through camp as a second or third string center. Kalan ReedSigned during training camp, it appeared for a moment like Reed could actually snatch a roster spot as he continued to make plays in practice. Reed impressed enough to spend the season on the practice squad, and there’s no reason not to run it back in 2019. Shalom LuaniPlaying under the ERFA tender in 2019, Luani should provide Seattle with good value. He proved to be a valued special teamer in 2018 and if he makes the 53-man roster in 2019, will do so again at a tiny cost.David MooreThere should still be hope within the Seahawks organization that Moore can fulfill the role of a contested-catch receiver. Moore will be a bargain for Seattle in 2019. Austin CalitroAt worst, Calitro was a core special teamer for the Seahawks in 2018. At best [url=https://www.theseahawksfanshop.com/Dontae-Johnson-Jersey]Dontae Johnson Color Rush Jersey[/url] , he did the job of a stop-gap in the starting lineup while Mychal Kendricks and K.J. Wright battled injuries. Like Moore and Luani, Calitro can provide Seattle with value in 2019. Jordan SimmonsFor a short while, it seemed as though Simmons may play D.J. Fluker out of a roster spot on the Seahawks in 2019. Injuries—perpetually the story with Simmons—ended his season, but he remains a highly fascinating project. Health permitting, Simmons could battle for a starting spot in 2019. T.J. MutchersonSigned as a UDFA following the 2018 NFL Draft, Mutcherson helped round out the numbers at safety in camp, while Maurice Alexander struggled to get healthy and Earl Thomas held out. He was placed on injured reserve during the cut from 90 players to 53, but if Seattle remains intrigued by his profile, he should be back in camp. Ricky Ali’ifuaSimilar to Mutcherson, Ali’ifua was in camp as Frank Clark and Dion Jordan missed time. A season-ending injury led to him spending the entire season on the Seahawks’ injured reserve. Defensive line will be a crowded group entering training camp, but Seattle can hang on to Ali’ifua until they need the roster spot. Emmanuel EllerbeeWhile injuries were ravaging the linebacker corps, Ellerbee made the jump from practice squad to active roster and appeared in four games. At least one of Kendricks and Wright won’t be back in 2019, so Ellerbee should have a roster spot in camp.The nature of the exclusive rights free agent tender gives the Seahawks a ton of freedom, able to hang on to a player until they need the roster spot elsewhere. It’s a tough spot for the player to be in, but it makes for easy decisions for Seattle. This group of young, intriguing (mostly) role players will help to fill out the 90-man roster the Seahawks will enter camp with.
