Hawks headed to the Windy City

With the Green Bay Packers taking care of Philadelphia on the road, 21-16, the Seattle Seahawks (8-9) will meet the Chicago Bears (11-5) in the NFC divisional playoffs on Sunday, 10 a.m. Pacific Time on FOX.

Of course, Seattle already played Chicago earlier this season, a surprising 23-20 win at Soldier Field in perhaps the Seahawks best game of the regular season.

The Seahawks held the Bears to 307 total yards offensively in that game, including just 24 yards on the ground. And Matt Hasselbeck had one of his better games against Chicago's Tampa 2 defense, finishing 25 of 40 for 242 yards and a 22-yard touchdown pass to Deion Butler.

The two teams have some playoff history as well, with the Bears defeating Seattle 27-24 in an NFC divisional playoff game on Jan 14, 2007 on their way to the Super Bowl.

Chicago quarterback Jay Cutler is playing in his first postseason game this week.
