With the Seattle Seahawks coming off of an amazing win over the world champions, many Seattle fans can start to grasp the complexity of another so-called upset in Chicago.

The Chicago Bears are the second best seed in the NFC. With that title comes confidence, easy win, and of coarse advancing into the NFC Championship game.

There is one 53-man team standing in the way: the 7-9 Seattle Seahawks whom, might I add, beat Chicago in Week 6, 23-20. The Seahawks relentless pass rush from defensive backs (4.5 sacks) that game really confused Jay Cutler and company.

It seems that when Seattle is winning their defense is in the top ten, but when trailing seem like a 30th overall defense. If Seattle can stop the run and stop Cutler's third down percentage they have a great chance to win the game.

So this Sunday it is going to be very simple stop the run early, and pressure Cutler.

Easier said then done.

The Bears have beaten excellent teams since the bye, including Philadelphia Eagles and the New York Jets.

The Bears are a different offense now since the bye week.

For Seattle to win Seattle will have to play a near perfect game. No interceptions, no fumbles and they will have to get the turnovers to win.

Seattle is the team that no one wants to play right now. They have nothing to be stressed out about, the players and coaches almost seem to be to loose for this late in the season.

Who know perhaps Seattle has hit its stride just perfectly. Everyone is healthy and the whole media wrote them out of the playoffs a week ago. 

Here's to all the analysts out there.

If Seattle can remain calm and collected, then they definitely have a shot at another so-called upset.

In other notes: If the Green Bay Packers beat Atlanta and Seattle beats Chicago, then the NFC championship game will be played in Seattle.
