Seahawks Vs. Bears Final Score: Seattle Puts Up 31 Unanswered Points, Overwhelms Chicago 38-14

The Seattle Seahawks took it right to the Chicago Bears in the second half, and turned a close matchup into a rout. After falling behind 14-7 at halftime, Seattle rolled up 31 straight points, 17 in the third quarter, 14 in the fourth quarter and they're still alive for one of the final playoff spots.

The Seattle defense was probably the most impressive part of this game, allowing only six yards in seven relevant drives. Seattle forced three interceptions and four punts and just couldn't let Caleb Hanie do anything. Red Bryant and Brandon Browner both returned interceptions for touchdowns. The Seahawks also took advantage of a Leon Washington punt return to set up a short drive and a Tarvaris Jackson connection to Michael Robinson, and used some Marshawn Lynch rushing touchdowns to clinch it up.

Jackson finished with an efficient game, completing 19 of 31 passes for 227 yards and one touchdown. Marshawn Lynch didn't have a great running game on the ground but did have the two touchdowns. Hanie completed only 10 of 23 passes for 111 yards, but also had the three interceptions which really made the difference in this one.
