The Seahawks had planned to start Drew Lock tonight in his bid to become the starting quarterback for 2022, but a bout with covid has put him out of commission this week and instead Geno Smith will start for the second game in a row.

The Chicago Bears don’t have a quarterback competition other than the battle between Justin Fields the good and Justin Fields the bad. Which Justin Fields shows up against the Seahawks?
