Bears Beat Seahawks 35-24

Divisional Playoffs - Seattle Seahawks v Chicago Bears

CHICAGO (AP) – Jay Cutler ran for two touchdowns, threw for two more, and the Chicago defense manhandled Seattle early for a 35-24 victory Sunday, lifting the Bears into the NFC championship game against their archrivals, the Green Bay Packers.

The Bears (12-5), who edged the Packers for the NFC North title, will host the title game next Sunday _ their first meeting in the postseason since 1941. Chicago leads the NFL’s longest series 92-83-6, and each team won at home this season.

Cutler had TD runs of 6 and 9 yards, Chester Taylor added a 1-yarder and Greg Olsen caught a 58-yard touchdown pass from Cutler on Chicago’s third offensive play. Kellen Davis caught a 39-yarder with 4:40 remaining.

The Bears’ defense did the rest as Seattle (8-10), the first division winner with a losing record, couldn’t score until the outcome no longer was in doubt.
