Bears-Seahawks going to overtime

Despite a 97-yard touchdown drive by Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson, the Seahawks missed out on a road win because of their defense.

The Bears just tied the game and sent it into overtime with a 46-yard field goal as time expired, making it 17-17.

The Seahawks for some reason didn’t quadruple-cover Bears wide receiver Brandon Marshall, who reeled in a 56-yard ¬†grab to set up the game-tying field goal by Robbie Gould.

Marshall was the target of 14 of Jay Cutler’s 26 passes, and was essentially the only one that could make a play. And the Seahawks let him.

    Once again in a tight game the Bears were badly out-coached. tow touchdowns by a rookie QB in the space of 4 minutes against the famed take-away D. Can we trade Lovie for Rex even up?

    The linebackers age is starting to catch up with them….they were gassed at the end of the game.

    Snatching defeat from the jaws of victory, lotta blame to go around, but basically letting Wilson rush for 71 yards was the biggest nail in the coffin, along with not kicking a FG early, and Bennett dropping a sure TD.
