Seahawks slip past Bears

Aug 17, 2008 - 4:53 AM SEATTLE (Ticker) -- Rookie Brandon Coutu kicked a 36-yard field goal 3:28 into overtime to give the Seattle Seahawks a 29-26 victory over the Chicago Bears on Saturday.

It was Coutu's fifth field goal. He previously had been successful from 48, 26, 46 and 21 yards.

The Bears had tied the game on a 9-yard pass from Caleb Hanie to Kellen Davis with 2:50 left. Chicago went for the PAT rather than a two-point conversion to force the overtime.

Earlier in the fourth quarter, T. J. Duckett had powered in from a a yard out to tie the game at 19. Two minutes later Justin Forsett rumbled around left end for 10 yards to put Seattle up, 26-19.

Defense and special teams led the way for the Bears - again.

After Seattle took a 6-0 lead, Reggie Hodges blocked a punt in the second quarter for a safety as the ball went out of the end zone to get the Bears on the board.

Then, in the third quarter, Corey Graham intercepted a Charlie Frye pass and returned it 6 yards for a touchdown as the Bears took a 12-9 lead.

Less than two minutes later, Earl Bennett returned a punt 75 yards for a 19-9 advantage.

Bears quarterbacks Rex Grossman, Kyle Orton and Hanie combined to go 19-of-33 for 154 yards, one touchdown and two interceptions.

With starter Matt Hasselbeck sitting out due to back tightness, Frye went the whole way, finishing 20-of-35 for 209 yards and three interceptions for Seattle.
