The Seattle Seahawks take their third road trip to play the Chicago Bears October 17th. This game will let everyone know if the Seattle Seahawks are as bad on the road as their first two games. The Seattle Seahawks have been destroyed on the road by the Denver Broncos and their NFC West rivals the St Louis Rams.
Jay Cutler should return for this home game and he has played well at Soldier Field in Chicago but the Chicago Bears refusal to develop the running game could catch up with them. Over the bye week the Seattle Seahawks addresses their running game problem by acquiring Marshawn Lynch for a fourth and six round NFL Draft pick and Pete Carroll lets go another veteran in Julius Jones.
Seattle Seahawks Offense vs Chicago Bears Defense
The Seattle Seahawks new found potential running game in Marshawn Lynch and Matt Hasselbeck at quarterback with a receiving corps of has beens and NFL rookies doesn’t threaten many NFL defenses. The Seattle Seahawks will face one of their toughest defenses in the Chicago Bears and as we witnessed when the Seattle Seahawks took on the St Louis Rams this could be a dangerous game for Hasselbeck.
The Chicago Bears defense is one of the most menacing in the NFL at this point of the season. The return of Brian Urlacher is a huge boost to Lance Briggs and the rest of the Chicago Bears defense. If the Chicago Bears would give up on the Devon Hester at wide receiver experiment they could have the best defense in the NFL. They need their shut down corner back in Hester to complete their defense. The Chicago Bears Defense has the edge over the Seattle Seahawks offense.
Chicago Bears Offense vs Seattle Seahawks Defense
Without Jay Cutler the Chicago Bears offense used the run to defeat the Carolina Panthers and maybe offensive coordinator Mike Martz learned he can actually use his running backs to set up a play action pass and give his offensive line and quarterback a break. Matt Forte is the type of runner that picks up steam as the game progresses and Martz would do well to give Forte 20-25 carries a game.
The Seattle Seahawks defense has performed well at home and awful on the road also. The 12th man in the Seattle Seahawks Qwest Field deserves recognition for the two wins at home for the Seattle Seahawks. The defense has solid linebacker play but the corners and defensive front line are lacking at times. The Chicago Bears offense has the edge over the Seattle Seahawks defense.
