10:15am Seattle Seahawks at Chicago Bears
To even the loss they have last week, Seahawks are here again. Seahawks broke the Bears defense in week 13 for 459 total yards including rookie Russell Wilson. It was a very poor defense. The Seahawks rank in points in offensive yards. The bears have been bad at Soldier Field in recent years. Despite last week events, this is still a fresh start for Matt Nagy who hopefully can bounce back and have a good home start. If they can keep their defense running in all four quarters, they are going to surprise the world. A match against Russell Wilson is not easy but after staring Aaron Rodgers last weekend, the bears should be very ready.
