Seahawks Vs. Bears Final Score: Seattle Crushes Chicago In Second Half, Wins 38-14

The Chicago Bears came into Sunday's game needed a victory, but they didn't come particularly close to meeting that goal in a brutal 38-14 defeat at the hands of the Seattle Seahawks. This game was sort of like a microcosm of how each team has played recently, as the Bears have now lost four straight games while the Seahawks have won five of their past six games.

Chicago actually had a 14-7 lead going into halftime against Seattle, but things quickly unraveled in the second half. Seattle outscored Chicago 17-0 in the third quarter, and then carried that momentum with them into the fourth quarter. The Bears just couldn't get anything going offensively, devolving into a series of poor plays that allowed the Seahawks to effectively run away with the game.

It got bad enough that Caleb Hanie, the recent replacement for injured quarterback Jay Cutler, was bench late in the fourth quarter. Things didn't get much better with his replacement, though, as Josh McCown ended up throwing an interception on his second pass upon entering the game. 

It was just an all-around brutal second half for Chicago, which looked totally overmatched on offense. The Bears finish the game with 221 yards of total offense, but they were only able to muster one offensive touchdown given the five turnovers they committed today. The loss drops Chicago to 7-7 on the year, a stunning situation for the Bears to be in after winning seven of their first ten games.
