It has been a tumultuous week for the Seattle Seahawks. Unfortunately for them, it isn't getting any easier heading into the weekend.

First the sprinklers came on during the game in Miami. Then they lost on a last second field goal. And to top it all off, they found out after the game they might lose both of their starting cornerbacks to suspension.

Seattle turns its attention this week to the big bad Bears. In Chicago.

"Playing there is hard anyway but they way they it, they run the football with big conviction, and then they play their defense like they on special teams – it's tough," said coach Pete Carroll. "And that doesn't even count what [Jay] Cutler can do and Brandon Marshall. Those guys are on a real roll right now."

Carroll said the Bears pose a significant challenge, but one the team needs to meet.

The good news for Seattle? The Seahawks have beaten the Bears two of the last three times at Soldier Field.
