Finally a win on the road again!
The Seahawks went to Chicago and came out the victors once again as they are quickly becoming the most feared team in Illinois.
Even though the defense tried their hardest to give the game away in the final seconds once again, the Seahawks emerged as a team that is sure to be a force in the NFC playoff picture.
With only one remaining road game left, history is on the side of the Seahawks, and the loss to the Rams by the 49ers only seemed to cement our destiny as a team on the rise.
Offensive game ball
I don’t care how we ended up winning this game (offense), or who caught the game winning TD (Sidney Rice), this weeks game ball will always go to Russell Wilson.
My goodness how this kid has matured right in front of our very eyes week by week.
This could have been another kick in the gut, give up because the defense let you down, kind of overtime performance, but this kid didn’t give up, he led his down the field for the game winning TD.
At times it looked like this kid had to do it all on Sunday. (Photo: seahawks.com)
Frankly I wouldn’t have wanted to just go for the field goal and give our defense another chance to lose this thing for us either.
Oh, he had help in this one, a TD by Golden Tate, and another by Marshawn Lynch, but this win was all on Wilson.
Even in the drive to give the Hawks the lead with just seconds remaining in the 4th was an absolute thing of beauty to watch.
I, like the rest of you, thought that the drive was going to go for not after the D let the Bears off the hook with only 4 seconds remaining.
Overtime came, and Russell Wilson led the charge right back down the field once again for another TD, that is why he will be the Rookie of the Year, and that is why he deserves this game ball in week 13.
Defensive game ball
Does anybody even deserve this?
For the second week in a row this unit has failed (Ok, harsh, but its how I feel) us as fans, the coaching staff, and their offensive and special teams units.
But, if I had to give it to a player, that player would be Bobby Wagner.
The rookie linebacker had a team high 9 tackles, including a sack, which resulted in the Bears losing 7 yards on the play.
There was a really good view of Pete Carroll giving Wagner a hug as the two walked off the field after the overtime win, so I guess Pete agrees with me on this as well.
Next week the Seahawks are back home against the birds from the south, the Arizona Cardinals, who are reeling like no other in the tough NFC West.

CHICAGO -- Quarterback Russell Wilson of Seattle is no longer short nor a rookie. Well, actually, he's still both of those things, but don't try telling that to the Chicago Bears -- or to the Seahawks, for that matter. Wilson stood tall and played like a poised veteran Sunday, directing a magnificent drive late in the fourth quarter and then another in overtime, eventually...
Russell Wilson's late-game heroics help the Seattle Seahawks topple the Chicago Bears 23-17 in a back-and-forth overtime contest at Soldier Field.
Russell Wilson was trying to share the credit, spread it around to all different teammates, when he came to this: "Matt Flynn goes out there to get the coin toss flip, and that was big for us.''
Matt Flynn. Yes, I remember him. He's the guy Seattle signed for $29.5 million to run the offense. We haven't heard from him since, though he has apparently developed...
The Chicago Bears needed to keep Jay Cutler upright if they were going to defeat the Seattle Seahawks. They did that but it was their defense who could not contain Seattle’s Russell Wilson late in Sunday’s game.
Earlier in the week, Seattle head coach Pete Carroll said that the training wheels were off of the offense. Wilson attempted a career high 37 passes against the Bears...
I know I had a million other people I could’ve made the lead out of from yesterday’s games but I think you’ve already heard of them and you already know how good they are and what they do. Don’t worry, I’ll be able to talk about them below. What you need to realize is for all the accolades being shined on Luck and RGIII, Russell Wilson is putting together a strong year...
The Seattle Seahawks needed overtime to pull off today's upset of the Chicago Bears, but in the end, Russell Wilson was able to take the Seahawks down the field on the first possession of overtime, ending with a touchdown toss to Sidney Rice.
The game was close throughout, with the Seahawks holding a late lead before Jay Cutler connected with Brandon Marshall, putting the...
Russell Wilson delivered in a big way for the Seattle Seahawks Sunday against the Chicago Bears. Wilson led the Seahawks on a 97-yard TD drive right before the end of regulation and then a game-winning 80-yard drive in overtime, capped off by this touchdown pass to Sidney Rice, who was nearly decapitated on the hit.Via @cjzero

After another great performance that included a big win over the Bears on the road, Seattle Seahwks cornerback Richard Sherman believes rookie quarterback Russell Wilson is a little better than both Robert Griffin III and Andrew Luck. “They’re going to hype who they’re going to hype, and you’re in the Seattle market, and it doesn’t matter what you do,” Sherman said...
Christmas came early
No, that wasn’t a typo in the paper, or some sort of glitch on your TV screen Sunday afternoon, the Seattle Seahawks actually won a game on the road against a good Bears team.
It all seemed to fall into place after that non-call when Doug Baldwin pushed off to make the catch to extend the drive in overtime.
Just like the Packers game, I don’t care if...
The distances the Seattle Seahawks offense needed to cover late in regulation and then again in overtime left plenty of opportunity, as Pete Carroll put it, to ''really screw it up.''
Not with Russell Wilson at the controls. Not with the way this rookie is playing.
''There's really nothing to hold us back with what we can do and ask the quarterback to...
On target with his passes, too fast with his feet and composed when he could have wilted down the stretch, Russell Wilson was simply having a blast.
Why wouldn't he?
He stared down the Monsters of the Midway and gave Seattle a rare road win, not to mention a playoff boost.
Wilson threw for two late touchdowns, connecting with Sidney Rice for a 13-yard score with 7:33 left...
