After Seattle's stunning win over the New Orleans Saints in the Wild Card Round, the Seahawks now travel to Chicago for the Divisional Round of the playoffs. The Seahawks look to ride their winning streak all the way to the Super Bowl, but will have to go through two more tough NFC teams.
The Chicago Bears earned the No. 2 seed in this year's playoffs by going 11-5 and winning the NFC North. The Bears shocked many people by doing so well this season after a dismal 2009 campaign.
Chicago has one of the best defenses in the league to go along with the best special teams. Their offense must stay consistent for them to have a shot.
Seattle won the matchup between the two teams on October 17th in Chicago. The Bears were 4-1 at the time, and predicted by many to win the game. But Seattle used a balanced offensive attack to shock the Bears at Soldier Field. Seattle's defense put Chicago out of rhythm by pressuring Jay Cutler and forcing him to throw the ball 39 times.
Sunday's game will be a big test for both teams. Chicago can't overlook the Seahawks, even with their 7-9 record.
