Do I need to treat crabgrass on newly seeded lawn

I seeded this lawn about 2 weeks ago with a fescue, BG, rye mix. The weather was dry and hot and I had to irrigate, and now I have a fair amount of crabgrass growing along with lawn seed (see picture). My question is: will the colder weather that SHOULD be coming soon slow down the crabgrass growth enough from the lawn to establish (I realize it will completely die with first freeze), or do I need to treat it with a crabgrass spray like quinclorac? The owner would like to avoid using "chemicals" if possible.... I'm located in Northern Indiana/Southern Michigan. Thanks
