CHICAGO (AP) — Khalil Mack once again put on the sort of havoc-wreaking show the Chicago Bears envisioned when they traded for the superstar pass rusher.Even better for them Duane Brown Color Rush Jersey , they came away with the victory this time.Mack had one of six sacks against Russell Wilson, Prince Amukamara returned an interception 49 yards for a touchdown and the Bears beat the Seattle Seahawks 24-17 Monday night to give coach Matt Nagy his first career victory.Mack sprinted out of the tunnel to a neat ovation prior to his first appearance at Soldier Field since a blockbuster trade from Oakland just over two weeks ago. That deal happened after he held out the entire offseason and preseason seeking a contract extension from the Raiders rather than play under the final year of his rookie contract. Chicago gave him a six-year, $141 million extension that guarantees $90 million — the richest deal ever for an NFL defensive player.Mack also had the crowd roaring with a strip-sack in the first half, smacking the ball out of Wilson’s hand as he wound up to pass, and he consistently pressured the quarterback. It was more of the same from last week, when he had a strip-sack and interception return for a TD at Green Bay, except there was one key difference.The Bears came out on top after blowing a 20-point lead against a hobbled Aaron Rodgers in a loss to the Packers.“That’s a great feeling,” Mack said. “We took it over the top.”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 K.J. Wright Color Rush Jersey , 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.“I’m just really looking forward to the future of this team and seeing how we respond not only to tough losses like Green Bay, but how do we respond to a good win for us,” said Nagy, who replaced the fired John Fox. “Sometimes those are just as hard.”The Seahawks (0-2) lost for just the second time in nine Monday night games under coach Pete Carroll.“We’re still a work in progress,” he said.WILSON STRUGGLESWilson 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.But Wilson focused more on the two TDs Seattle scored in the fourth quarter, though the last one came in the closing seconds.“The fourth quarter showed us who we are and who we can be. … I don’t think we’re far off by any means,” he said. “I think the margin of error is really small. I’m normally optimistic, you guys know Bobby Wagner Color Rush Jersey , but I really mean that. I think that’s the situation we’re in.”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 — on a deep ball that was underthrown and on another throw tipped at the line.“I’m really proud with how he handled himself from Play 1 until the end of that fourth quarter,” Nagy said. “His attitude was great. He didn’t worry about anything. And so that’s growth right there.”URLACHER HONOREDThe Bears presented longtime linebacker Brian Urlacher with his Ring of Excellence for being inducted into the Hall of Fame.KENDRICKS’ DEBUTLinebacker Mychal Kendricks had a sack after signing with Seattle on Friday.Kendricks pleaded guilty last week to insider trading charges in Philadelphia. His sentencing is expected in January.Kendricks signed a one-year contract with Cleveland in June after playing last year with Super Bowl champion Philadelphia. The Browns released him after the charges were filed.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 (ankle) and DT Akiem Hicks (knee) walked off gingerly with two minutes left after he was hurt rushing the quarterback. But neither player thought their injury was serious.UP NEXTSeahawks: Host Dallas on Sunday.Bears: Visit Arizona on Sunday. In the Russell Wilson era, the Seattle Seahawks have started Week 1 on the road five times out of seven seasons. The 2013 team was the only one to win its road opener, and I believe they won the Super Bowl that year. I’ll need someone in the comments section to do the heavy lifting for me and provide me visual evidence that this actually happened.Anyway, we won’t know the Seahawks’ 2019 regular season schedule until April, but it’s a near certainty that they’re actually going to have a Week 1 home game for a pleasant change. Looking at their respective MLS and MLB schedules, the Seattle Sounders do not play on September 8th Justin Coleman Color Rush Jersey , while the Seattle Mariners are on the road that same day. With no conflicts in sight, that paves the way for the Seahawks to start at CenturyLink Field. The Seahawks have not lost a home opener since 2008, when the San Francisco 49ers beat them 33-30 in overtime. In fact, they are 14-0 at home in September under Carroll, the only undefeated team over the last eight years. Compare that with their September road record, which is just 3-13 and the second-worst mark in the NFL. Two of those wins include rallying from 20-3 down to beat the eventual 2-14 Houston Texans in overtime, and this season’s 20-17 win over the 3-13 Arizona Cardinals. As for other scheduling conflicts, looking at Weeks 2, 4 Russell Wilson Color Rush Jersey , and 5, the Seahawks are probably going to have road games on those dates. The Sounders are home on Sunday, September 15th and Sunday, October 6th, while the Mariners play their regular season finale on Sunday, September 29th. Of course, the Seahawks could always play a Monday night or Thursday night home game in one of those aforementioned weeks.Here’s a reminder of what the 2019 opponents are.Home GamesArizona CardinalsLos Angeles RamsSan Francisco 49ersCincinnati BengalsBaltimore RavensMinnesota VikingsNew Orleans SaintsTampa Bay BuccaneersAway GamesArizona CardinalsLos Angeles RamsSan Francisco 49ersPittsburgh SteelersCleveland BrownsPhiladelphia EaglesCarolina PanthersAtlanta Falcons
