Seattle Seahawks vs Chicago Bears takes place on Sunday in one of the biggest match ups in Week 13 of the NFL season. This clash will have big playoff implications for both teams, especially the Seahawks, who are trying to keep pace with the San Francisco 49ers in the NFC West. They will be desperate to win today and maintain the pressure for the divisional title. The game starts at 1 p.m. ET and can be watched online through free live stream (details below).
The Seahawks come into this game with a record of 6-5 and are sitting second in the NFC West behind the 8-2-1 49ers.
The Bears meanwhile are 8-3 and top of the NFC North, although they will be weary of the chasing Green Bay Packers who are just a game behind with 7-4. A loss today for the Bears and they could allow the Packers to move into position to overtake them at the top of the table. The Bears probably only need a few more wins to guarantee their place in the playoffs but for sure they will want the divisional title this year having performed so well in the first two-thirds of the season.
This game could pivot on how the respective defenses cope against the star quarterbacks in the opposition.
Jay Cutler for the Bears has had a solid season, completing 174 throws from 286 attempts for 2002 yards and 13 touchdowns. Meanwhile the Seahawks will be looking to quarterback Russell Wilson, who has been equally as impressive this year, completing 178 throws from 280 attempts for 2051 yards and 17 touchdowns.
The Seahawks will definitely be looking to halt Brandon Marshall, who has already gone past 1000 yards for the season. He has connected with his quarterback 81 times for 1017 yards and eight touchdowns.
The Bears meanwhile will have their eyes on both Sidney Rice and Golden Tate, who both have scored six touchdowns this season so far.
