Seattle Seahawks (6-5) at Chicago Bears (8-3)
The Seahawks were 6-4 coming out of their bye last week and looked like they were in prime position to take one of the NFC’s two Wild Card spots. However, they lost on the road to the Dolphins and now all of a sudden, the sky is falling for this team. Everyone’s wondering what happened to them. I’ll tell you what happened to them. The same thing that happened to them when they went to Arizona, St. Louis, and Detroit and lost to an inferior team: they went on the road.
Since the start of the 2005 season, no team has a bigger home/road differential ATS wise than the Seattle Seahawks. They are 22-43 ATS on the road and 45-20 ATS at home. At home, they outscore opponents by 6 points per game over that stretch and they get outscored by an average of 6 points per game on the road. The league average is 3 points at home and on the road, which is why 3 points are added either way when computing the line.
The Seahawks are on the road here, but in...

Chicago Bear quarterback Jay Cutler was fined for taunting by the league without muttering a word during the indicent. He flipped the ball at Vikings corneback A.J.

Chicago Bears quarterback Jay Cutler was fined $10,000 for taunting Minnesota Vikings cornerback A.J. Jefferson, the NFL announced Friday. Cutler, apparently thinking Jefferson hit him late or unnecessarily, flipped the ball at him after a play during the Bears' 28-10 victory on Sunday.
Jay Cutler continues to play at a high level, but the Chicago Bears' offense continues it's struggle to put points up on the board. The Jay Cutler and Brandon Marshall show combined for another 10 receptions for 167 yards but the Bears only scored 17 points.
This seems to be the weekly theme that has now developed, the Bears can rack up yards and receptions between...

From potential unfulfilled to puckering up at the sight of the Packers, has there been anything more frustrating than being a fan of the Chicago Bears this NFL season? Just when Bears fans think that their team has figured it out, Chicago lays an egg at the most inopportune time. This was again the case as the Bears collapsed against the Seattle Seahawks at home on Sunday...

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...
