Just two days away from the Bears’ first playoff game since losing in the Super Bowl four years ago, it’s about time to look ahead and predict the outcome of the Bears-Seahawks game.
The Bears’ offense isn’t the most dynamic and high powered in the NFL, but they do have the ability to create the big play and beat you if you’re out of position.
The Chicago Bears have been healthy all regular season long, and that health has continued into the playoffs. The Seattle Seahawks, on the other hand, may be without linebacker Lofa Tatupu.
The interminable lead-up to a Super Bowl is one thing. At such a comically outsized event, there is enough collateral silliness to pass the time beyond just football.
Expect frigid conditions for the Bears’ first playoff game Sunday.
The Chicago Bears and the Seattle Seahawks played each other in week six of the regular season. While both teams can use that game as reference, both teams have drastically improved since then.
For part of this season the Bears had a pass-heavy offense. It wasn’t until they switched over to a more balanced attack that the team became a serious title contender.
For an offensive line, perhaps more than any other group in sports, communication is the most vital key to success. And the more the group plays together, the more that communication improves.
The Bears were rewarded for their 11-5 record with a first round bye in the playoffs and a home field advantage for this divisional round game. But according to ProFootballTalk.com’s Mike Florio, that week off could hurt them.
The Bears-Seahawks game on Sunday will matchup up two very different quarterbacks. Matt Hasselbeck, has played in a Super Bowl, Jay Cutler, on the other hand, will make his first postseason start.
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.
In the NFL, wins are the fastest way to change perception of a team. But going into the second round of the playoffs, eight wins aren’t enough to change much.
Placed in the unfamiliar role of prohibitive favorites, the Bears seem to be doing and saying everything they can to feel otherwise.
In the first meeting between the Bears and Seahawks, Mike Williams caught 10 passes for 123 yards. A performance that helped the Seahawks beat the Bears. On Sunday, the Bears will have a second chance to shut him down.
What’s the hottest ticket in town this weekend? A Chicago ticket broker says if you think it’s the Bears playing the Seattle Seahawks in the playoffs, you’d be wrong.
The Chicago Bears ended the season as the second best team in the NFC, a far cry from where they started the season in most people’s eyes.
A win can do a lot for a team’s confidence, especially in the playoffs. And especially when the team, according to everyone outside of Seattle, didn’t deserve to be in the playoffs.
The talk has already started, or continued for that matter, that the Seattle Seahawks don’t deserve to be in the playoffs. They ended the season 7-9, but upset the defending Super Bowl Champions in the first round.
No one expected the Seattle Seahawks to knock off the defending Super Bowl champion New Orleans Saints. Could the same fate await the Chicago Bears?
The Seattle Seahawks upset the New Orleans Saints in the first round of the playoffs. While that win might have shocked the NFL, one touchdown may have shocked Seattle, literally.
