Matchup #3: Chaos ensues, Bears vs. Seahawks in the 1st round
Another game the Bears staff should scoreboard watch is the Seattle Seahawks game against the Arizona Cardinals. The Seahawks have had a resurgence this season after a shaky start, and are playoff bound and currently sitting at 9-6.
The Bears actually played the Seahawks all the way back in week two of this season and came away with a 24-17 win. But this Seahawks team is much better and more confident now, and there’s a chance the Bears will face them again in the wild-card round.
It’s also very unlikely, but if the Seahawks lose to the Cardinals on Sunday and the Vikings beat the Bears, the Vikings would jump up to the No. 5 seed in the NFC and knock the Seahawks down to the No. 6 seed.
This Seahawks team is firing on all cylinders. But if they somehow lose on Sunday, it could be a nightmare scenario with the team coming to Chicago for a first-round playoff game.
While the Bears would have a much better defense than Kansas City’s to try and contain Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson, this isn’t a matchup I want to see. It has upset written all over it, and Seattle has a lot of confidence right now.
