Chicago Bears would open with Seahawks in 1st round if playoffs started today

Andy Lyons

The Chicago Bears and Seattle Seahawks would be matched up if the playoffs started today.

The Chicago Bears welcome the Seattle Seahawks to Soldier Field this Sunday, and it might not be the only time that happens this season. If the playoffs started today, the Bears would host the Seahawks in the NFC Wild-Card Round.

Chicago is currently 8-3 and the third seed in the NFC, while Seattle is 6-5 and in the sixth slot. However, there's obviously much to be decided in the playoff picture. The Bears and Green Bay Packers are in a fight for the NFC North, and the Seahawks are trying to hold off numerous contenders for a Wild Card.

If Chicago and Seattle did meet in the postseason, it would mark the third-straight time the Bears faced the Seahawks in the playoffs. The Bears beat the Seahawks, 35-24, in the 2010 Divisional Playoffs, setting up a matchup against the Green Bay Packers in the NFC Championship Game. Back in 2006, the Bears beat the Seahawks 27-24 in overtime en route to Super Bowl XLI.
