Looking unusually shaky on defense in the second quarter, the Chicago Bears gave up a pair of scores and now trail, 10-7, to the Seattle Seahawks going into halftime on Sunday afternoon. With the Bears' offense stagnating and the Seahawks eating up yards through a balanced attack, Seattle's managed to take the lead on the road.
In the first half, the Seahawks put up 219 yards of total offense, including 94 yards on an impressive drive that running back Marshawn Lynch punctuated with a touchdown run. While Lynch lost a big fumble in the first quarter, he's played well, rushing for 51 yards on seven carries.
Seattle's second score came on a last-second field goal from Steven Hauschka, but that only came after a 14-yard touchdown catch by Braylon Edwards on 3rd-and-10 was controversially reversed on review. Russell Wilson makes a fantastic throw on the play, but Edwards doesn't quite get his hands under the ball apparently:
Chicago has also played fairly well on offense, compiling 166 total yards, but the running game has struggled and that proved to be particularly costly on a big 4th-and-1 in Seattle territory midway through the second quarter. On 14 carries, the Bears have rushed for just 41 yards.
Jay Cutler has played well for the Bears so far, completing 10-of-16 passes for 125 yards and a touchdown, but he's actually been outplayed statistically by Wilson. The rookie out of Wisconsin has completed 11-of-19 passes for 157 yards.
