Seat­tle Sea­hawks at Chicago Bears

(Chan­nel 45), Bears by 10

Only 21 of 53 play­ers on the Sea­hawks’ ac­tive ros­ter were with the team last sea­son. The Bears’ de­fense held op­pos­ing of­fenses to 256 points (16 per game), fourth-fewest in NFL. SMARTER STATS: Sea­hawks Coach Pete Car­roll has said that his plan is to kick to re­turn dy­namo Devin Hester, but that’s not as crazy as it sounds. Seat­tle has the most ef­fi­cient re­turn cov­er­age units in the league, and when these teams played in Week 6, the Bears were held to their 18-yard line as an av­er­age start­ing point, though Hester did re­turn a punt 89 yards for a touch­down. Seat­tle punter Jon Ryan put the Bears in­side their 10-yard line on five oc­ca­sions.
