The Seattle Seahawks have two quarters of regulation left to extend their season as they trail the Bears in Chicago 21-0 at halftime.
The Bears got a lead early, scoring on their third offensive play of the game. Facing third-and-three from his 42-yard line, quarterback Jay Cutler connected with tight end Greg Olson for a 58-yard score.
The Chicago quarterback in his first-ever playoff game wasn’t done. Already up 14-0, the 6-foot-3, 233-pound Cutler called his own number on a quarterback sneak, found an initial hole in the defense and managed to bounce off Seattle tacklers in route to a six-yard touchdown run with 10:07 remaining in the first half.
While Cutler’s shined in snowy Chicago, his counterpart hasn’t. Seattle’s Matt Hasselbeck completed 10 of 20 pass attempts in the opening 30 minutes of play for 78 yards.
Despite picking up five first downs in the first half, the Seahawks have punted the ball away on each of the team’s seven possessions.
