NFL Preseason Preview - Chicago (2-0) at Seattle (1-1)

By John McMullen, NFL Editor

( - The Chicago Bears will play their first of two road preseason contests in just under a week's time when they travel to the Pacific Northwest to take on the defending Super Bowl Champion Seattle Seahawks on Friday.

The Bears improved to 2-0 in the preseason last week when Senorise Perry's 5- yard touchdown run with 50 seconds left lifted Chicago to a hard-fought 20-19 win over the Jacksonville Jaguars.

Ka'Deem Carey scored on a 1-yard run earlier in the fourth quarter and Brandon Marshall caught a 4-yard score from Jay Cutler in the second quarter for the Bears, who opened the preseason with a win against the Philadelphia Eagles.

Cutler finished 7-for-9 for 75 yards during his time on the field while Jordan Palmer guided the Bears on their two fourth quarter scoring drives for the win.

The Seahawks, meanwhile, looked as dominant as ever last week as Russell Wilson ran for a pair of touchdowns during Seattle's 41-14 drubbing of the San Diego Chargers.

Wilson completed 11-of-13 passes for 121 yards and added 31 yards rushing on four carries for Seattle.

Robert Turbin carried the ball 12 times for 81 yards and a score and Percy Harvin caught four passes for 31 yards in the triumph.

The Bears and Seahawks will be meeting for the fourth time in the preseason with all four meetings coming in the Pacific Northwest. Seattle owns a 2-1 advantage with Chicago's lone win coming in 1976, the Seahawks' inaugural NFL season.
