Seahawks vs. Bears, Week 13: Bears lose in overtime

Jay Cutler's long connection with Brandon Marshall set up a game-tying field goal, but the Seahawks methodically marched to a touchdown in overtime.

The Chicago Bears' defense had contained many of the Seattle Seahawks offensive weapons all day until Seattle's final drive of the fourth quarter. Rookie quarterback Russell Wilson moved his team down the field and connected with Golden Tate, who broke multiple tackles on his way into the end zone to give the Seahawks a lead.

Lucky for the Bears, the Seahawks' secondary forgot all about Brandon Marshall on the ensuing possession and Jay Cutler connected with him for 56 yards to set up Robbie Gould's game-tying field goal.

The Seahawks won the coin toss and started the overtime period with the football and the offense remained in rhythm. Wilson's 13-yard touchdown pass to Sidney Rice ended the game 23-17 in favor of the Seahawks.

Windy City Gridiron wasn't terribly pleased with the loss, especially because it means they fall out of the lead in the NFC North.

So the Bears fall to 8-4 and, with the Packers' victory, to second place in the NFC North. Yuck. At least Cutler didn't take a non-fumble-assisted sack.

The Bears will finish the season with three of four on the road, including next week's rematch with the Minnesota Vikings in Minneapolis.
