The 2018 Seattle Seahawks regular season did not get off to an ideal start on opening week, as they lost to the Denver Broncos 27-24. They’ll look to get in the win column on Monday Night Football against the Chicago Bears, who blew a 20-0 lead on the road against the Green Bay Packers and are also 0-1. This is Seattle’s first game in Chicago since Russell Wilson’s superstar-making performance and 4th quarter/overtime heroics way back in 2012.
Seattle comes into this game banged up everywhere, but especially on defense. Bobby Wagner and K.J. Wright are both out, and it looks like Tre Flowers is also not expected to play. On offense, the key man out is WR Doug Baldwin, who has a reported Grade 2 MCL tear and his timetable for a return is unknown. D.J. Fluker is out for another week due to a hamstring problem. As for the Bears, they seem to be fairly healthy, and have Khalil Mack... I know that worries you already. Rookie head coach Matt Nagy will look to exploit Seattle’s banged up defense, and also have his emerging defense shut down the Seahawks offense, which was largely mediocre against Denver.
You know by now that teams that start the year 0-2 have only made the playoffs 11% of the time in the current format. Seattle made it after an 0-2 start in 2015, I doubt that’s the case in 2018.
