Seahawks' Michael Dickson uses rare dropkick kickoffs vs. Bears

Trubisky-Mitchell-USNews-091818-ftr-getty

Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson has developed a reputation as a clutch fourth-quarter performer.

Missing three key starters, including All-Pro linebacker Bobby Wagner, the Seattle Seahawks defense had every reason to lay down against the Chicago Bears on Monday Night Football. Chris Carson took handoffs on the initial three plays of the game, including a 9-yarder on the first and a 2-yard run for a first down on the next.

The Bears (1-1) bounced back after blowing a 20-point lead in a loss to a gimpy Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers mainly because their defense dominated in a big way.

The bad news: The offense was unable to do anything about it against the stout Chicago defense.

Chicago took that favorable field position and pushed all the way to Seattle's 7, and while Justin Coleman almost picked off Trubisky at the goal line after he was pressured on third down, the Bears' Cody Parkey kicked a 25-yard field goal to extend their lead to 10-0. He was sacked six times throughout the game, pushing Seattle's allowed sacks total to 12 - the most in the National Football League through two games. Seattle drove 75 yards down the field, capped by Wilson's handsome 19-yard touchdown pass to Tyler Lockett that make it 10-17.

Seahawks cornerback Shaquill Griffin finished with two interceptions after entering the game with one pickoff in 16 career games.

When asked specifically if it was still a week-to-week situation McDermott said "I don't plan on that being the case". Davis, 30, started and played the first half of the game before retiring at halftime with the Bills trailing 28-6.

Heading into the fourth quarter, Schottenheimer's squad had 80 total yards of offense.

The Bears got on the board first, marching 96 yards down the field after Michael Dickson's punt pinned them on their own 4-yard line. Janikowski did just that, hitting from 56 yards. The last player to do that in a game was Mack himself, in Week 12 of the 2016 season against the Carolina Panthers. He also threw a 10-yard scoring pass to rookie Anthony Miller early in the fourth quarter.

Schottenheimer has been far too quick to abandon the ground game and how he's split up reps in the backfield has been debatable, but the Seahawks haven't been effective on the ground for the most part. The Bears took that quarterback money and extended Khalil Mack after trading for him.

That's when the Seahawks' offense woke up. Last week didn't go our way, this week, we pulled together as a team and we got it done.

A 25-yard field goal by Cody Parkey increased Chicago's lead to 10-0 with 1:07 to go in the first half. Wilson connected with a sprawled-out Tyler Lockett in the corner of the end zone for a 19-yard touchdown, bringing the Seahawks back within a score of the Bears with just over 10 minutes to go. Wilson tried to rally the Seahawks but threw a costly pick-six to Bears cornerback Prince Amukamara, who stepped in front of a short pass and ran 49 yards for a score with 6:37 remaining in the game. Seattle let Dickson show what he could do in that situation with a dropkick, but the Bears recovered and escaped with the win.
