With the temperature hovering in the teens and snow flurries abound,  the Seattle Seahawks will try to continue their momentum from the previous weeks amazing victory over the New Orleans Saints.

Not too many people gave the Seahawks a chance against the Saints  considering their 7-9 record but when a team gets into the playoffs, anything can happen and the Seahawks got hot at the perfect time!

Now they travel to Soldier field to take on the the NFC North Champs and try and prove one more time that they belong in the playoffs.

I don’t expect the Bears to take Seattle’s 7-9 record lightly. After all, they just knocked the defending Super bowl champs.

The parking lots are full and there is a feel of electricity inside Soldier Field. It’s a moment of truth for both teams as each seek to progress to the Super Bowl in Dallas Texas.

This game is represented well with a total of ten players from both teams combined with Hawaii and Polynesian ties.  That’s impressive to say the least!

They say that defense wins championships and the Bears have one of the best as it showed today. The Seahawks couldn’t get any offense going and found themselves down 21-0 at half time. However, you won’t find any playoff worthy teams giving up no matter how deep in the hole they are. The Seahawks fought back and made a game of it ,  eventually falling to the Bears 35-24 . I can say one thing for sure about the Seahawks. They are a playoff worthy team that will improve under 1st year Head Coach Pete Carroll.
