NFL Playoffs, Bears Vs. Seahawks: Jay Cutler Strikes First

The Chicago Bears are on the board first after Jay Cutler found Greg Olsen on a seam route for 58 yards and the touchdown. After the Seahawks went three-and-out to start the game, aided by Brandon Stokley’s slip on third down, the Bears took over and got to work quickly. Two quick runs and a bomb on third and short gave the Bears a 7-0 lead three minutes into the game.

Lawyer Milloy was caught looking into the backfield on third down as Olsen blew by him like he was standing still. To his credit, Cutler made a beautiful throw, hitting Olsen in stride as he waltzed into the end zone. Just like last week, the Seahawks are behind early and will have to dig themselves out of a hole.

The turf at Soldier Field is already on display, with players struggling to find footing in rough conditions. Stokley appeared to have the first down, but slipped as he tried to plant on the Seahawks first drive and couldn’t haul in Matt Hasselbeck’s short pass.

We’re underway in Chicago, with the Bears leading the Seahawks 7-0.
