With Khalil Mack facing his former team, the Bears’ defense turned in an impressive showing and shut down the Raiders’ offense today in Las Vegas.

The Bears’ 20-9 victory was keyed by the defense, with Mack having seven solo tackles and a sack. Raiders quarterback Derek Carr had a difficult game, with no touchdowns, one interception and three sacks.

Bears quarterback Justin Fields didn’t do much. He completed just 12 of 20 passes for 111 yards, with a touchdown and no interceptions, while gaining just four yards rushing. But the Bears’ defense played well enough that they didn’t need much from Fields.

Chicago’s win leaves both teams at 3-2. For the Bears, they have to feel good about keeping pace in their division on a day when both the Packers and Vikings also won. For the Raiders, it’s a disappointing loss and a two-game losing streak after a 3-0 start to the season.
