Seattle Seahawks at Chicago Bears
1 p.m., WTTG (Channel 5), WBFF
(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.
