The Seattle Seahawks are a borderline playoff team and boast one of the strongest home-field advantages in football. But a break in the schedule for the Chicago Bears means that they'll get the Seahawks at Soldier Field, and Seattle has been significantly worse away from home this season. In six road games, the Seahawks are just 1-5, with that one win coming over the Carolina Panthers.
The Bears, meanwhile, righted the ship this past Sunday with a convincing victory over the Minnesota Vikings. The win, combined with the Green Bay Packers' loss to the New York Giants, means the Bears still hold a one-game lead over the Packers in the NFC North, though that could change with a Bears loss and a Packers win this Sunday.
Regardless, a win will keep the Bears in solid playoff position with just five games remaining in the season, but they'll have to do it with a team that was banged up in the win over Minnesota. Lance Louis is already out for the season, and Devin Hester, Lance Briggs and Matt Forte all have questionable statuses.
Sunday's game kicks off at 12 p.m. CT on FOX.
