Week 2 of the 2018 NFL Season was completed on ESPN's Monday Night Football when the Chicago Bears defeated the visiting Seattle Seahawks 24-17. All-Pro quarterback Russell Wilson was sacked, five times in the first half, while Seattle's poor offensive line play continued with few holes opening in the running game. Chicago would score on their first possession with a ten play, 96-yard touchdown drive capped by a three-yard Mitchell Trubisky touchdown pass to tight end Trey Burton and an early 7-0 lead. Despite turning the ball over on consecutive possessions on athletic plays by Seattle cornerback Shaquill Griffin, Chicago's defense limited Seattle to only a field goal in the first half and led 10-3 at halftime.

Russell Wilson's fourth-quarter heroics would make the game a one-possession affair with seven minutes remaining but a crucial interception by Bears cornerback Prince Amukamara returned for a touchdown would make the score 24-10 and put the game out of reach.

Seattle struggles in the third quarter

The third quarter featured three and outs on both Seattle possessions with six total yards of offense. Chicago, meanwhile, opened the fourth quarter by capping an 11 play, 66-yard touchdown drive with a 10-yard touchdown pass, from quarterback Mitchell Trubisky to rookie receiver Anthony Miller giving the Bears a 17-3 lead. Russell Wilson, the consummate All-Pro, would immediately respond with a dynamic ten play, 75-yard drive capped by a brilliant 19-yard touchdown reception by receiver Tyler Lockett to cut the Bears' lead to seven with 10:13 remaining in the game.

Seattle's defense forced a three and out on the Bears next possession giving Russell Wilson a chance to even the game with under nine minutes remaining. After moving the ball to their 45-yard line, on a second and nine, Wilson threw the pick-six, and the game was basically over.

Dallas Cowboys 20, New York Giants 13

Sunday Night's game featured an NFC East Showdown between two teams searching for their first win in 2018.

Dallas struck quickly on their first possession when quarterback Dak Prescott, playing for a new contract, found receiver Tavon Austin for a 64-yard touchdown strike a minute and thirty-four seconds into the game for a 7-0 lead. Dallas would later kick a field goal and lead 10-0 at halftime. The Cowboys, opening the fourth quarter with a 14 play, 82-yard drive capped by an Ezekiel Elliott six-yard touchdown run to extend their lead to 20-3 with 5:45 remaining in the game.

Elliott would finish the night 78 yards on 17 carries with one touchdown. The Giants would answer with an 11 play, 75-yard touchdown drive of their own with 1:27 remaining in the game to make the score 20-10 but with little time remaining, the game was out of reach. The Giants will look to rebound in Week 3 when they visit the equally winless Houston Texans while the Cowboys will visit winless Seattle.
