The Seattle Seahawks will face the Chicago Bears in their next preseason game as their powerful rushing attack looks to take advantage of an underwhelming Bears defensive line.
The Seattle Seahawks bounced back from a heartbreaking preseason opener loss to the Denver Broncos by smashing the San Diego Chargers 41-14, and they will take their momentum into their next game against the Chicago Bears on Friday.
Their running game stepped up hugely by totaling five touchdowns. Robert Turbin led the attack with 81 yards and a touchdown on 12 carries, and Christine Michael added 45 yards on eight carries.
The quarterbacks also stepped up in the rushing department as Terrelle Pryor rushed for 59 yards and a touchdown on only three carries, and Russell Wilson rushed for 31 yards and two touchdowns on four carries.
The defense also performed well as it held the Chargers to 14 points and registered five sacks.
The Bears will look to improve their 2-0 record, but their defense will need to step it up after allowing Jaguars quarterbacks Chad Henne and Blake Bortles to torch them.
Quarterback Jay Cutler looked solid as he completed 7-of-9 of his passes for 75 yards, and running back Ka’Deem Carey showed a knack for the goal line again despite a pedestrian rushing average of 2.8. Shaun Draughn made the most of his limited action with 33 yards on three carries.
