Shaquill Griffin

Anytime you record two interceptions in a single game, you’ll easily be one of the biggest standouts from the week. With his two interceptions on Monday, Griffin surpassed his interception total from last season and had a statement game. He needed it too, after the Seahawks secondary gave up a ton of yards in their Week 1 matchup.

Griffin is the team’s top cornerback, even though he’s just in his second season in the league. The 2017 third-round pick has played well for the Seahawks, playing above where he was drafted. Still, he hasn’t found the consistency teams look for in number one corners. But he played well against Mitch Trubisky — in fact, the whole secondary performed fairly well.

The Bears offense only gained 200 yards through the air. That being said, Trubisky is one of the easier quarterbacks to play against in the NFL. There will be far greater challenges coming Griffin’s and Seattle’s way in the coming weeks.

Hopefully Griffin will be able to replicate his Monday night production in the coming weeks, because the Seahawks offense isn’t going to be able to carry the defense this year. Griffin seems like a prime candidate to step up and seize the opportunity to become a leader for Seattle.
