Ron Glover’s NFC Divisional Playoff Prediction Seattle Seahawks vs. Chicago Bears

Aaron Curry - Seattle Seahawks v Chicago Bears

It’s a good thing that my predictions are made with Monopoly money on the table or Luca Brasi would be paying me a visit. The final two tickets to Championship Sunday will be punched today. Let’s look at the first meeting today between the Seattle Seahawks and Chicago Bears.


Deon Grant Devin Hester #23 of the Chicago Bears has this pass knocked away by Kelly Jennings #21 and Deon Grant #24 of the Seattle Seahawks at Qwest Field on August 16, 2008 in Seattle, Washington. The Seahawks defeated the Bears 29-26 in overtime.

The Seahawks must:

  • Provide a good mix of Marshawn Lynch and Leon Washington out of the backfield
  • Create mismatches for Chris Clemons and Raheem Brock to get to Jake Cutler
  • Allow Mike Williams to use his height in the Red Zone
  • Stay away from Devin Hester in the return game 

The Bears must:

  • Get Devin Hester involved as much as possible
  • Get hits on Matt Hasselbeck
  • Protect Jake Cutler and not allow his emotions to turn into mistakes
  • Give Matt Forte at least 20 touches

The Pick: Seattle 23 – Bears 17

    Wow, RG, it took some stones to make that pick.

    Like the Luca Brasi reference.

    C’mon Maaaaaan:

    @RG: I’m not gonna give you a hard time about going with that broken down clock of a QB in Matt Hasselbeck, but I’m wondering why you didn’t roll with the home team that beat the Jets, the Eagles, and the Packers down the stretch.

    Just sayin’.
