Preseason Week 2 Pre-Gamin’: Bears at Seahawks (7 PM CT) – Lineups, Broadcast Info, Game Thread

The Chicago Bears won back-to-back games just twice last year.

Aside: Sheesh. No wonder the organization cleaned house early on the Monday morning after the regular season finale.

One set of consecutive wins game in Weeks 16 and 17, and it began with a win against the Seahawks on Dec. 26. A true post-Christmas miracle by Bears standards. The Bears, who were facing a 10-point deficit after three quarters, came back with a vengeance by scoring 11 points in the fourth quarter.

Nick Foles, Jimmy Graham, and Damiere Byrd to the rescue:

There won’t be a Nick Foles, Jimmy Graham, Damiere Byrd, or snowflake sighting in Seattle this time around. But it is an exhibition game, where new heroes will hopefully emerge. And if you’re looking for someone to keep tabs on tonight, we’ve got you covered.
