(Eds: APNewsNow. Will be updated. With AP Photos.) By TIM BOOTH AP Sports Writer Leon Washington takes pride in owning a share of the NFL record for most career kickoff returns for a touchdown, especially considering the devastating broken leg he had to overcome before he could get there.
No disrespect to Cleveland's Josh Cribbs, but Washington wants to own the record himself.
Washington pulled even with Cribbs last week when the Seahawks return specialist busted free for a 98-yard kickoff return for a touchdown in the fourth quarter of Seattle's 24-21 loss to Miami. It was his first kickoff return for a touchdown in nearly two calendar years.
The Seahawks go to Chicago this week, but there won't be a matchup of two of the most dynamic kick returners in football - Washington and the Bears' Devin Hester - because Hester is out with a concussion.

According to ProFootballWeekly.com, one of the Seattle Seahawks’ main priorities this offseason will be restructuring safety Kam Chencellor’s contract.
Before the Seahawks seriously consider re-signing any upcoming free agents such as DLs Jason Jones and Alan Branch, we hear a bigger priority could be restructuring a new contract for Pro Bowl SS Kam Chancellor. The third-year...

Fantasy Football – Seattle Seahawks Week 13 Predictions
The Seattle Seahawks stay on the road this week where they are far less effective than they are at home. Add in the fact that they are up against the top defense in the NFL at Soldier Field and the prospects for a monster Fantasy day have to be considered dim at best Sunday.
That said there...
While Brandon Browner and Richard Sherman intend on pursuing their right to appeal for now we’ll have to assume that the suspensions will stand (I know that’s a guilty until proven innocent point of view, but, its not often the case that suspensions are completely overturned) and that may be enough to sink the Seahawks playoff aspirations...

Undeniably bad on the road.
The Seattle Seahawks play in one of the NFL's most remote outposts. It's partly why they are so dominant at home, going 5-0 with three victories by at least 10 or more points this season while playing before one of the rowdiest fan bases in football...
The 6-5 Seattle Seahawks travel to Chicago, for the fourth time in three seasons, to face the 8-3 Chicago Bears. Apparently NFL Commissioner, Roger Goodell, has been too busy turning the league into flag football in recent seasons to notice this scheduling oversight. Granted, one of the visits occurred during the 2010 NFC Playoffs, but it seems reasonable to have Bears visit Seattle...
Chicago’s defense knows that stopping Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch, the third leading rusher in the league, will be a key factor in the Bears' bid for a victory on Sunday.
Last week: 11 (-2)
Net points per drive: 0.29 (11th)
DVOA: 30.7% (4th)
Weighted DVOA: 32.1% (4th)
Tier 4: Young teams that could make the playoffs, but won’t do much once they get there
QB Russell Wilson: 21 of 27 for 224 yards and 2 touchdowns, 1 throw away, 109.9 adjusted QB rating, pressured on 12 of 33 drop backs (2 sacks, 2 scrambles, 5 of 8, 1 touchdown...
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...
Another road loss
One day, hopefully soon, as in next week, we will be able to celebrate after a Seahawks road game, but unfortunately, this week is not that case.
The Seahawks traveled to Miami last week, into their definite un-comfort zone, and walked away with a loss after the D let us all down.
Next week doesn’t get any easier for the Hawks, as they travel to Chicago to take...
In this week's rousing edition of the best Chicago Bears podcast on the web we cover the offensive line, injuries, and preview the Seattle Seahawks.
