Seahawks vs. Bears: Seattle struggles on road

Jonathan Daniel

The Chicago Bears will try to hand the Seattle Seahawks their sixth road defeat of the season in Week 13.

Looking to extend their lead in the NFC North, the Chicago Bears will welcome a talented Seattle Seahawks team to the Windy City this Sunday for a game with serious playoff implications.

The Seahawks have won all five of their games at the comfortable confines of Century Link Field this season, but will enter Week 13 with a meager 1-5 record on the road. Now with the daunting task of playing in the windy conditions of Soldier Field this weekend, Seahawks coach Pete Carroll expressed his frustration with the road losses this year to Jeff Dickerson of ESPNChicago.com.

"We've had a number of opportunities to execute right down to the end and one thing or another doesn't quite get done," Carroll said. "It's just hard to get. It's happened on both sides of the ball. We haven't been as sharp as we need to finish the games."

Seattle's only road victory of the year came back on Oct. 7 against a lowly Carolina Panthers team, and the play of rookie quarterback Russell Wilson has been adversely affected when his Seahawks aren't hitting the field at home. Wilson's quarterback rating in Seattle this year stands at an impressive 122.0, but drops down significantly to a 75.5 mark away from CenturyLink Field. Following a week where Chicago's defense routinely frustrated Minnesota quarterback Christian Ponder, it's a safe bet that the Bears will try to take Wilson out of his comfort zone right away come Sunday.
