Seahawks vs. Bears score update: Chicago leads, 7-0, early

The Chicago Bears lead the Seattle Seahawks, 7-0, early in the second quarter of Sunday afternoon's game from Soldier Field. A big turnover, solid offense and some lucky bounces on fumbles have put the Bears ahead as they look to improve to 9-3 on the season.

A big first-quarter fumble by Seattle running back Marshawn Lynch handed the Bears good field position, something that the offense characteristically took advantage of with a touchdown. Jay Cutler has been hot so far, completing 7-of-9 passes for 94 yards, including a 12-yard touchdown pass to Earl Bennett.

The Bears had a pair of big fumbles in the first quarter, but the team had the good fortune of falling on both balls, avoiding turnovers in both cases. One of those fumbles was on a big passing play to Brandon Marshall, who has four catches for 64 yards so far, but he managed to fall directly onto the ball.
