They keep games close and take them down to the wire. The only games where that hasn't been true are against the Cowboys and Jets, where Seattle won big. Every single loss Seattle's had was by 7 or less, and every one of them was close in the 4th quarter. Your Bears may win, but don't be surprised if it's by a late FG.
Good point. Even if the margin of victory doesn't hold to form, the Bears do still play better from ahead, so it's still a situation where I feel like the first quarter will be important.
