Wilson, Seahawks stun Bears in OT

Published On: Dec 03 2012 01:12:00 AM CST

CHICAGO -

Seahawks 23, Bears 17 (OT): Russell Wilson hit Sidney Rice with a 13-yard touchdown pass at 7:27 of overtime to lift visiting Seattle to a rare road victory.

The Seahawks got the ball first in the extra period and ate up nearly half the allotted time with a 12-play, 80-yard drive. Wilson found Rice on the left side, and the veteran wide receiver crossed the goal line as he was going to the ground, just before a crushing hit from Chicago safety Major Wright.

Wilson finished 23-of-37 for 293 yards and two touchdowns while Marshawn Lynch ran for a score for Seattle (7-5), which improved to 2-5 on the road and dropped Chicago into a tie with Green Bay atop the NFC North.

Wilson found Golden Tate for a go-ahead touchdown with 24 seconds left in regulation, but Jay Cutler needed only one play to get the Bears into field-goal range, hitting Brandon Marshall with a 56-yard pass on the right side. Matt Forte ran two yards to get it into the middle of the field, and Robbie Gould booted the 46-yard field goal to force overtime.

Chicago (8-4) had taken a 14-10 lead in the third quarter, when Forte split out as a wide receiver and dove to catch a 12-yard pass from Cutler over the middle before sliding into the end zone. Wilson’s go-ahead drive spanned 97 yards in 12 plays.

GAME NOTEBOOK: Cutler went 17-of-26 for 233 yards and two scores and Marshall caught 10 passes for 165 yards. … Chicago CB Tim Jennings went down after a hard hit in overtime and did not return. Bears WR Earl Bennett, who caught the first touchdown pass of the contest, left in the second quarter with a concussion and did not return. … Seahawks CBs Richard Sherman and Brandon Browner both played. The two reportedly tested positive for a banned substance but are active during the appeal process.
