Following the Bears' 24-17 win over Seattle Monday night, take a look at what writers around the country are saying about the team.

Pro Football Weekly
"Most impressive in Monday night's 24-17 victory over the Seahawks in the home opener was the Bears' front seven, which completely dominated the Seahawks' traditionally weak offensive line throughout the first three quarters. Even when they didn't sack Wilson, the Bears' pass rushers, primarily OLB Khalil Mack, pressured him into hurrying his throws." -Bob LeGere

"After dominating the season opener last week, Mack was once again a force to be reckoned with, wreaking havoc up front and creating opportunities for Trevathan, Akiem Hicks and Aaron Lynch to make big plays." -Chris Wesseling

The Athletic
"Khalil Mack's first home game at Soldier Field included another strip sack. Veteran cornerback Prince Amukamara picked off his first pass since 2015 and took it to the house for a game-sealing, 49-yard touchdown in the fourth quarter. Linebacker Danny Trevathan, almost a forgotten man with the additions of Mack and rookie Roquan Smith, added two sacks, including a forced fumble on Russell Wilson in the fourth quarter." -Jon Greenberg

Chicago Tribune
"On Monday night, the Bears faced a Seahawks defense that is rebuilding from the Legion of Boom days and also was without three starters. The Bears came out firing Monday night in a 24-17 victory before a raucous Soldier Field crowd that came to see Nagy's first regular-season home game and a classy halftime celebration for Pro Football Hall of Famer Brian Urlacher." -Brad Biggs
