The Chicago Sun-Times’ experts offer their predictions for the Bears’ “Monday Night Football” home opener against the Seahawks:

RICK MORRISSEY

Bears, 24-23

When he wasn’t throwing interceptions in Week 1, Broncos quarterback Case Keenum was carving up the Seahawks with lots of short passes. Look for Bears coach Matt Nagy to give Mitch Trubisky the chance to get into a rhythm and reclaim any confidence he lost in the second half against the Packers. Record: 1-0.

RICK TELANDER

Bears, 20-17

Let’s assume Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson will look more like DeShone Kizer than Aaron Rodgers against the Bears’ ‘D.’ And the Bears’ ‘O’ realizes these games have second halves. Record: 1-0.

ADAM L. JAHNS

Bears, 24-20

The Bears are 3 ½ point favorites against the Seahawks, who are a vastly different team than the one that won Super Bowl XLVIII. Wilson was sacked six times in Week 1 against the Broncos, and he’ll be without his top receiver, Doug Baldwin, who has a torn MCL. Record: 0-1.

PATRICK FINLEY

Seahawks, 18-17

The Bears have a new coach and a quarterback who’s started 13 games in both college and pro ball. There’s no way to tell how they’ll handle Sunday’s loss. The Seahawks, meanwhile, have the NFL’s best “MNF” winning percentage, .719. Record: 1-0.

MARK POTASH

Bears, 24-17

The Bears are coming off a devastating loss, but they generally bounce back after losing at Lambeau — 7-1 in the Aaron Rodgers era — and are better equipped to respond this time, especially on defense.Record: 1-0.
