Chicago Bears vs Seattle Seahawks
Averaging 18.3 points per game, the Bears placed 27th last season. The team held their opponents to 23.9 points, ranking 22nd in the league.
Following a 19-14 victory over the Kansas City Chiefs in their opener, the Bears are looking to win again. There are several younger players on the team, including quarterback Justin Fields. Fields had an underwhelming rookie season.
Trevor Siemian, a starter in this league, has been added to the Bears and will contribute to the development of the young quarterback. In the preseason opener, Fields completed 4 of his 7 passes, while Siemian impressively accumulated 89 passing yards. This could be extended playing time for Bears third string QB Nathan Peterman after limited action last week.
The Bears' first RB David Montgomery missed last week's game due to injury, so it's unlikely he'll play this one. The team's second running back is Khalil Herbert. A respectable season in 2021 resulted in 433 rushing yards for the 24-year-old. But the depth at Chicago's wide receiver position is limited, with only Byron Pringle and Darnell Mooney as the top two options.
The Seahawks ranked 16th overall last year with an average of 23.2 points. Averaging 21.5 points per game, their defense ranked 11th in the NFL.
A 32-25 loss to the Steelers in the opener made the Seattle Seahawks one-point favorites. There is an interesting quarterback battle going on in the Seahawks. Geno Smith and Drew Lock are competing for the first job now that Russell Wilson is no longer with the team.
Smith is expected to start in week one. In 2021, he had a 5:1 touchdown-to-interception ratio in his limited action for Seattle. Playing well in the preseason opener, he accumulated 101 passing yards. Seahawks first RB Rashaad Penny has an injury and is unlikely to play. Kenneth Walker III was a solid RB last week, rushing for 19 yards.
Tyler Lockett and DK Metcalf lead Seattle's depth at wide receiver. Marquise Goodwin, who did not play in the preseason opener, is among the injuries to their receiving core. Seattle's defense also faces some uncertainty. They lost a key veteran linebacker to the Rams last year as well as a poor pass rush.
