Seahawks eat up Bears 38-14 and are hungry for more

Published on December 19, 2011 by     Tacoma News Tribune (Feed)

Michael Robinson says that’s why the Seattle Seahawks have won five of their past six games, including the team’s latest victory, a 38-14 blowout on the road against the Chicago Bears.

“Everybody is eating,” the Seattle fullback said. “You know what I mean? We’re all hungry and everybody is eating. We just have to stay focused.”

Down 14-7 at halftime, the Seahawks reeled off 31 unanswered points in feasting on the Monsters of the Midway on Sunday afternoon at Soldiers Field.

At 7-7, the Seahawks are two games out of the NFC wild-card hunt, with Detroit and Atlanta at 9-5.

Several different scenarios remain for Seattle to get into the postseason for a second consecutive year. If Seattle wins its last two games – at home against San Francisco and on the road versus Arizona – and the Lions lose their final two games, then the Seahawks are in.

With starting quarterback Jay Cutler out with a broken right thumb on his throwing hand, Seattle’s defense preyed on backup Caleb Hanie, sacking the Colorado State product four times and forcing him into four interceptions. Seattle returned two of those for touchdowns, and converted Chicago’s five turnovers into 21 points.

Marshawn Lynch finished with 42 yards on 20 carries, but managed to get into the end zone twice. Lynch became the first Seattle running back to surpass 1,000 yards since Shaun Alexander rushed for 1,880 in the 2005 season. Lynch has 1,011 yards and 11 touchdowns on the year.

More impressive, Lynch also broke a franchise record for touchdowns in consecutive games, previously held by Alexander, by scoring a touchdown in his 10th game in a row.

Seattle’s defense played well, but the offense was the catalyst for Seattle’s explosion in the second half.

After a shaky first half, Seattle quarterback Tarvaris Jackson led Seattle on a five-play, 80-yard drive to open the second half to tie the game at 14 on a 3-yard run by Lynch.

Seattle defensive end Red Bryant put his team up for good two plays later, corralling his second career interception in the second half when linebacker K.J. Wright pressured Hanie into a bad throw. Bryant rumbled 20 yards for his first career touchdown.

“Got me a little ‘Prime Time’ in,” Bryant said. “I didn’t get the walk like him, but just being a kid watching Deion Sanders do it and getting the opportunity to get a touchdown – that’s a fat kid’s dream right there.”

Brandon Browner also made a bit of history. Seattle’s first-year cornerback notched his sixth interception in the second half and returned it 42 yards for a touchdown. It was his second interception return for a score this year and it helped Browner set a franchise record for return yardage in a single season with 220 yards, passing Dave Brown, who had 179 interception return yards in 1984.
