Bears Dominated First Half
After the first half of the Chicago Bears-Seattle Seahawks game ended, the Bears were looking at a 21-0. It was a first half dominated by the Bears on offense and defense.
Offensively, Greg Olsen has been the biggest difference maker. His three catches for 113 yards, including a 58-yard touchdown on the Bears’ first pass play of the game, set the tone for the rest of the offense.
Jay Cutler’s first playoff game started off without a hitch. Cutler was 8/16 in the first half with a quarterback rating of 110.7, Cutler also rushed for a touchdown. He’s the first Bears’ QB to run for a TD in a playoff game since Jim McMahon in Super Bowl XX.
The defense was stellar, forcing seven punts in the seven first half possessions for the Seahawks. The Seahawks were limited to 96 total yards in first half plays.
