The NFL closes out Week 2 with an intriguing Monday Night Football matchup. The Chicago Bears host the Dallas Cowboys , with kickoff set for 5:15 p.m. PT on ESPN. Joe Tessitore and Jason Witten will call the game from the booth, with Booger McFarland serving as an analyst from the field. Lisa Salters continues her duties as the sideline reporter.Both teams are 0-1, which means the loser of this game would fall into the 0-2 stat regarding difficulty in subsequently making the playoffs. It’s not the best measurement, but it is particularly notable for the Seahawks as far as I’m concerned!The Bears are a 4.5 point favorite, and I am leaning the Bears. Seattle will be without wide receiver Doug Baldwin and linebackers K.J. Wright and Bobby Wagner. I don’t know how the Seahawks offensive line is going to stand up to the Bears ferocious defensive front. Khalil Mack has a chance to have a monster game. If Seattle wins this game, it will be because of errors by Bears quarterback Mitchell Trubisky. If Trubisky can avoid stupid mistakes, the Bears should win this game with relative ease.Bears vs. Seahawks, MNFTime: 5:15 p.m. PTLocation: Soldier Field, Chicago , ILChannel: ESPNLive Stream: WatchESPNOdds: Bears We will hear plenty over the next week about Nick Mullens’ performance in the San Francisco 49ers win over the Oakland Raiders. But beyond his performance, the pass rush was a revelation — for at least one game — and it was critical to the 49ers victory.The 49ers have struggled to get any kind of pressure off the edge. Cassius Marsh occasionally has gotten through, but it’s been an inconsistent unit. On Thursday, the unit was huge in Dekoda Watson’s return from injured reserve. Marsh finished the game with six pressures and 2.5 sacks, while Watson had six pressures and 1.5 sacks. The 49ers as a whole sacked Carr seven times and got 26 total pressures, according to Pro Football Focus.The 49ers had averaged a little under 18 pressures per game entering Week 9. The unit has been able to harass quarterbacks, but they have struggled mightily in closing the deal. That was not the case this week, even against a Raiders offensive line that has been shaky but not atrocious. Entering the game, Football Outsiders ranked the Raiders 16th in adjusted sack rate. That’s certainly not great Youth Brock Coyle Jersey , but it’s not exactly atrocious.Dekoda Watson has never been a big pass rush guy. He entered the game with four career sacks, and has been more a special teams player than regular defensive option. I’m not expecting a massive close to the season, but having a guy with fresh legs might be worth noting. Someone mentioned that on Twitter last night, and it makes some sense. The Raiders were playing on a short week, and Watson has been rehabbing the first eight weeks of the season. Maybe these next couple weeks he has an edge over some of the offensive linemen he’s facing.We’ll break down the pass rush in more detail in the coming days, but suffice to say, it was great seeing at least one week of positive momentum for the unit. And there might be some room to build on it next week against the New York Giants. Football Outsiders ranks them 25th in adjusted sack rate, and Eli Manning just seems comfortable giving up on plays and falling into a sack. The pass rush could get a chance to eat once again in nine days.
