Held scoreless for most of the first half by a game Chicago Bears defense, the Seattle Seahawks finally broke through late in the second quarter for two scores to take a 10-7 lead into halftime from Soldier Field in Chicago.
The Seahawks first score came on a 4-yard touchdown run from Marshawn Lynch. The touchdown capped a nine-play, 94-yard drive.
The Bears' lone touchdown of the day, a 12-yard completion from quarterback Jay Cutler to Earl Bennett, was the game's only score for most of the half, with neither offense able to capitalize much in the early parts of the game.
Chicago was, however, able to take advantage of good field position on their first offensive drive, going 49 yards in six plays to score the game's first touchdown. The Bears recovered a fumble to give themselves a short field to score, which they did. But the Bears would not score again in the half.
Seahawks kicker Steven Hauschka converted a field goal try in the final seconds of the first half to give the Seahawks the edge.
