Bears defense notches first sack of season in Seattle

SHARE Bears defense notches first sack of season in Seattle

The Bears defense hasn’t made the improvements many thought it would in the early stages of the 2015 season. As poor as the secondary has performed, the team’s defensive line may be the most underperforming unit on the team.

Through two games this season, the Bears have racked up 107 total tackles — none of which went for sacks.

According to Pro Football Reference, this is the first time since Weeks 2 and 3 of the 2010 season the Bears have gone consecutive games without a sack. Both games ended in victories.

Although Chicago’s team faced quarterbacks Aaron Rodgers and Carson Palmer in the first two weeks, the former Pro Bowlers operated effectively despite offensive lines that were less than ideal.

The Bears leading pass rusher from 2014, Willie Young, has no sacks on the year. He finished last season with 10.


In the first quarter of Sunday’s game, Jarvis Jenkins dropped Russell Wilson for an eight yard sack.
