Through just over a quarter of play in Sunday’s NFL playoff game between the Chicago Bears and Seattle Seahawks, tight end Greg Olsen already has three catches for 113 yards and a touchdown. To put it in perspective, Olsen’s production for the whole 2010 regular season was just 404 yards on 40 catches. His yardage in just one game, the most important one of the year for the Bears, is more than a quarter of his year-long production and he’s averaging almost 40 yards per catch.
The Bears have pretty much put this one to bed already, scoring for a third time on their last possession. Jay Cutler found Olsen for 22 yards, hit Johnny Knox for a big third down, then kept it himself inside the Seattle 10 yard line, breaking a tackle and diving into the end zone. The Seattle defense has been unable to find an answer for Cutler and Olsen thus far as the two continue to shred the defense.
With 10 minutes to go in the half, the Bears lead the Seahawks, 21-0.
