Seahawks vs. Bears: Chicago has had trouble with Seattle

Seahawks have not lost at Soldier Field since 2006.

The Seattle Seahawks are just 1-5 on the road this season, but the team also has some recent history on its side as the team faces the Chicago Bears at Soldier Field at noon CT Sunday.

The Seahawks have not lost a game in Chicago since 2006, notes John Mullin of Comcast Sports Net Chicago.

"But Seattle also has not lost in Soldier Field in the regular season since 2006, the Bears' Super Bowl season," writes Mullin. "The Bears have beaten the Seahawks twice in divisional-round playoff games, but Seattle put 24 points on the Bears in both the 2006 and 2010 games. The 2011 loss marked only the 10th time in the Lovie Smith era that the Bears lost a game when leading at halftime (14-7). And that stung."

The Bears do own two playoff wins over the Seahawks during that span, so they did get a bit of redemption, but this season with Chicago in the running for a first round bye in the NFC playoffs, a win at home Sunday is very important to keeping the Bears in that race.
