Bears-Seahawks prediction

The Seahawks are beaming after their upset win last week, but they are not going to pull off another surprise at Soldier Field.

Seattle will challenge the Bears and this will not be the blowout that some are expecting, but Chicago's defense will make a big play or two more than Seattle's "D" does, and that will be the difference.

Playing with a lead for much of the game, Bears offensive coordinator Mike Martz will emphasize the running game and RB Matt Forté will be much more involved than he was the last time Chicago played Seattle, when he had a season-low eight carries.

As long as QB Jay Cutler doesn't set the Bears back with multiple turnovers, they should finish on top and be one win away from a Super Bowl appearance.

Prediction: Bears 24, Seahawks 14
