Seahawks Vs. Bears Score Update: Chicago Leads 14-7 At Halftime

After initially trailing 7-0 in the first quarter following a series of mistakes that allowed the Seattle Seahawks to take the lead, the Chicago Bears are now up 14-7 as the two teams go into halftime on Sunday afternoon. A defensive touchdown by the Bears late in the first quarter tied the game up at 7-7, and it was the offense that came through later to put Chicago ahead.

Chicago's offense struggles of late have been chronicled in detail, with injuries forcing the team to depend on the likes of quarterback Caleb Hanie and running back Marion Barber in recent weeks. That formula hasn't worked so far, but it did show some signs of life late in the second period as Hanie led the offense on a ten-play, 57-yard drive that concluded with an impressive 25-yard touchdown pass to Kahlil Bell. That nice toss from Hanie is shown below:

Hanie may not be anything close to Jay Cutler, but it's worth noting that he's at least continued to show flashes of potential. It also helps that Chicago's defense continues to thrive, too. Seattle had just 84 yards of total offense in the first half, as Tavaris Jackson completed just four passes for 51 yards and Marshawn Lynch was held to only 27 yards rushing on ten carries.
