What happened? Seahawks 14, Bears 0. After
Player of the quarter: Harvin. Wilson was lights out on both TD drives, but Harvin had the big kickoff return and the big reception on the first drive.
Play of the quarter: On a third-and-15 play, Jeffrey got behind Maxwell for what looked like a game-tying TD reception on the Bears’ first possession. But Maxwell recovered to slap the pass from Jeffrey’s hands.
Number to note: 3. It’s Wilson’s uniform number, but also the number of rushing TDs he has scored in his past three quarters of play. Then there were his two third-down completions on the first drive, and his TD run to cap the second series – which came on third down.
What happened? Seahawks 31, Bears 0. The Seahawks pushed their lead to 21-0 with 7:10 left in the half when Russell Wilson’s 12-yard TD pass to Jermaine Kearse – on third-and-10 – capped an 11-play, 83-yard drive. Wilson was 4 of 5 for 56 yards, Percy Harvin had two receptions for 36 yards,
Player of the quarter: Wilson. He throws (7 of 8 for 78 yards and two TDs for a 146.9 rating). He runs (once for 9 yards). He scrambles to buy time. And the Seahawks’ third-year QB was impressive while doing it all. Wilson finished the half 13 of 17 for 174 yards.
Play of the quarter: Thomas’ 59-yard punt return to the Bears’ 16. After having little room to move – or return – in the first two preseason games, Thomas finally broke one. Although allowing punter Patrick O’Donnell to clip his heel and bring him down will undoubtedly be a topic for conversation in the video review. Honorable mention to Lane’s pick and return, that setup Hauschka’s 59-yarder.
Number to note: Five. The Seahawks had five first-half possessions and scored on each – four touchdowns, two rushing in the first quarter, two passing in the second quarter; and Hauschka’s long field goal.

Play of the quarter: On a second-and-6 play from the Seahawks’ 10, Dowtin dropped Shaun Draughn for a 2-yard loss on the first drive where the Bears settled for a field goal.
Number to note: Seven. The Seahawks have won seven consecutive home games during the preseason, and this year’s back-to-back victories came by a combined score of 75-20.
