Bears Eliminate Seahawks from Post Season

“Sea ya!” read one fan’s poster as the Chicago Bears won the NFC Divisional Playoff game against the Seattle Seahawks. Chicago fans were already beginning to think ahead to the possible game against the Green Bay Packers during the first quarter, when Greg Olsen took a 58-yard pass from Jay Cutler to the house, within the first 3 minutes.

The Bears started off very strong, and continued their positive performance into halftime at 21-0, which is their highest post-season record (at halftime) since 1941. And now that they secured their spot into the Conference Championship next week, they will be taking on another task that hasn’t been matched since that same year: challenging their long-time rival, Green Bay Packers, into a coveted Superbowl position.

Although Chicago lost to Green Bay in Week 17, fans can have faith that the Bears will display the same turn-around as they did for the Seahawks. In Week six, Bears lost to the Seahawks, 20-23, which an embarrassing six sacks. Cutler definitely proved himself this time around, by throwing two touchdowns and running another two. If Bears keep up their same talent as they did in the first half of today’s game, then we can rely on them repeating the same outcome against the Packers in 1941 game.

The Bears continued to dominate into the third quarter at 28-0, but deteriorated towards the end, leaving a final score of 35-24. If they are able to stay in the entire game next week at Soldier Field, another reprise of the “Superbowl Shuffle” will be in order.
