Three days after a discouraging home loss to the Cardinals, the Bears return to the practice field Wednesday to prepare for Sunday's game against the Seahawks in Seattle.
The Bears are 0-2 for the first time since 2003 and have lost seven straight dating back to last season. The reigning NFC champion Seahawks are also 0-2 after dropping back-to-back road contests to the Rams and Packers.
The Bears trail the all-time series 10-6 and have lost four of the last six. They lost the last meeting 23-17 in overtime on Dec. 2, 2012 at Soldier Field as Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson engineered touchdown drives of 97 yards late in the fourth quarter and 80 yards in overtime.
Wilson passed for 293 yards and two TDs and rushed for 71 yards on nine carries. The Bears forced overtime with Robbie Gould's 46-yard field goal on the final play of regulation. It was the last NFL game for middle linebacker Brian Urlacher, who exited with a hamstring injury.
After Week 2, the Bears rank eighth in the NFL in offense (5th rushing and 19th passing) and 7th in defense (tied for 22nd against the run and 4th versus the pass). The Seahawks rank 19th in offense (11th rushing and 20th passing) and 17th in defense (15th versus the run and 21st versus the pass).
