Seahawks off bye and out to Chicago

Jay Cutler could be back this week.

(Paul Spinelli / Associated Press)

The storyline
Few teams are as bad as Seattle on the road, and a 5-1 Bears team would be sitting in a great spot.

Why you should watch
If Jay Cutler plays, as expected, then we're all spared the six completion/four interception misery of Todd Collins last week. The Seahawks could be due for some road success coming off the bye.
