2018 Week 2: Seahawks at Bears Picks & Predictions

Local and national media predict which team will come out on top in the Seattle Seahawks' Monday Night Football matchup against the Chicago Bears. 

Check out which side the local and national media are predicting to win the Seattle Seahawks' Monday Night Football matchup against the Bears in Chicago:

Brady Henderson, ESPN.com: Seahawks 27, Bears 23

Henderson: The Seahawks will be without No. 1 receiver Doug Baldwin and linebacker K.J. Wright. However, they still have the clear edge at quarterback with Russell Wilson. Under Pete Carroll, the Seahawks are 22-4-1 in prime-time games and 7-1 on Monday night.

Jeff Dickerson, ESPN.com: Bears 20, Seahawks 17

Dickerson: Pass-rusher Khalil Mack figures to be even better in Week 2. And if Chicago's offense can show marginal improvement, the Bears have a good opportunity to get coach Matt Nagy his first win as a head coach.

Elliot Harrison, NFL.com: Bears 27, Seahawks 24

Harrison: Despite the collapse in Lambeau, I like this Bears team. The running game is totally legit. Tarik Cohen is Darren Sproles 2.0 in the pass and run sections of this offense, while the quality O-line makes it all go. And Chicago's defense will finish in the top seven. Book it.

Jim Moore, 710Sports.com: Seahawks 20, Bears 17

Moore: (Chris) Carson is going to have his first of many 100-yard games this week, and the Seahawks will cover the spread and win the game outright.

Mike Florio, ProFootballTalk.com: Seahawks 23, Bears 17

Florio: The Bears may need a while to recover from Week One.

Michael David-Smith, ProFootballTalk.com: Seahawks 20, Bears 10

MDS: I think the Bears will be reeling after Sunday night's meltdown.

Pete Prisco, CBSSports.com: Bears 27, Seahawks 26

Prisco: The Seahawks are playing consecutive road games, which is tough. It's now even tougher with the loss of Doug Baldwin for a few weeks. Chicago's defense showed up big last week against the Packers, and will here.

BleacherReport.com: Seahawks 23, Bears 21

BR: If the Bears learned from the mistakes they made in the second half of that Packers game, they could be in for a successful home opener. But they remain green (figuratively), and with three points in hand, the better bet might be the team that wears green (literally).
