The upstart Seattle Seahawks look to emerge as Wild Card favorites against a Chicago Bears team that has lost two of three. The 6-5 Seahawks take on the 8-3 Bears at Soldier Field on Sunday.
Last Sunday, the Seahawks defense allowed Ryan Tannehill and the Dolphins to engineer a last-minute touchdown drive to clinch a 24-21 loss. That same defense may be getting hampered by the loss of both of its cornerbacks. Both Richard Sherman and Brandon Browner tested positive for Adderall and are facing four-game suspensions. Whether they seek appeals and try to play this week remains to be seen.
After a 7-1 start the Chicago Bears had their first hiccup of the season: consecutive losses to the Texans and 49ers. But Jay Cutler returned from injury as did the Bears mojo as they trounced the Vikings, 28-10, last Sunday. Chicago is clinging on to a one-game lead in the NFC North over the Packers, who get their turn at the Vikings this week.
