Bears-Seahawks Rematch Not About Revenge

If the Chicago Bears beat the Seattle Seahawks on Sunday they’ll advance to the NFC Championship game, and that’s all they’ll achieve by beating them. The loss to the Seahawks in the regular season can’t be undone.

“This isn’t about revenge,” former Bears’ offensive lineman, Jay Hilgenberg said on the Danny Mac Show. “This is the playoffs. This is a whole new season. That game was so long ago, it was a different team for the Bears. So it’s all about focus and winning this game on Sunday afternoon.”
