Its my second look at the Bears today who are up against the Super Bowl Champions Seattle Sea Hawks.
(Due to the baseball game finished late) I joined the game in the first quarter with the Hawks already ahead 7 – 0. Hawks are 3rd and goal with Russell Wilson directing the offense, FLAG – false start on the offense, Rushing TOUCH DOWN, with point after its Hawks – 14 and the Bears – 0 at 1:09 in the first quarter.
Bears with the ball on the 17 yard line with Jake Cutler at the helm. On a three and out the punting team is on. It was a good series, just could not hold on to the catches. 13:13 of the second quarter
Sea Hawks – TOUCH DOWN – 7:10, with the point after the Hawks extend their lead to 21 to 0.
Bears – need to try anything to get some points in the board before halftime. The hawks are looking strong and see a lot of confidence in both the offense and defense. Ruling on the field is the ball is recovered by the Hawks. Ruling is the runner was down after the ball came loose, Bears 1st and 10 at the 33 yard line. Punting away and the Hawks return to the 17 yard line of the Bears.
Hawks – TOUCH DOWN – 1:55. with the point after it is 28 to 0.
Bears – need something to go right to gain some confidence or they are heading for a defeat.Cutler managed so how to not get sacked and get the ball out to a receiver for the first down. FLAG – delay of game on the offense, makes it 1 and 15. First and goal at the 1/2 foot line, FLAG – Offense pass interference. Picked off by the sea hawks and its returned to the 43 yard line. (on a bad call and cutler not ready for the snap)
