Seahawks look for another victory at Chicago

The storyline

As captivating as Seattle’s win was against New Orleans, it must now go on the road and prove the clock hasn’t stuck midnight. The Seahawks beat the Bears, 23-20, in Chicago in Week 6, so they’ll carry that thought with them. So will the Bears, who are a vastly different team that has steadily found its identity since then.

The Seahawks will win if …

Quarterback Matt Hasselbeck is equally as sharp as he was in shredding the Saints in the wild-card round. Seattle will need to take some of the deep shots downfield that it converted against New Orleans in order to keep Chicago’s defense honest. … The Seahawks must limit the rushing yards and influence of the Bears’ running backs in the passing game.

The Bears will win if …

Quarterback Jay Cutler limits turnovers and remains patient in the passing game. Seattle might scheme to keep throws underneath and Cutler should play to that. When he gets greedy, trouble could follow. … They deny Seattle’s running attack to prevent extended drives. The Bears are a good tackling team and they must exhibit that against the Seahawks, because Seattle’s offensive threats don’t go down easily.

Did you know?

Chicago ran the ball just 14 times for 61 yards in the first meeting. Matt Forte had eight carries for 11 yards. … Seahawks wide receiver Mike Williams had 10 catches for 123 yards in that game. … Seattle has the worst road record of any playoff team (2-6), but one of those victories was at Soldier Field (the other was at Arizona).
