Bears within two games of final playoff spot

Seahawks RB Chris Carson scored a game-tying TD in the first quarter Monday

The Seahawks (10-2) are positioning themselves to earn a first-round bye.

However - coach Pete Carroll did indicate the shoulder injury suffered by veteran defensive end Ziggy Ansah could be more of an issue than originally thought. That closeness allows the Seahawks to fight adversity, come back from deficits and win games in the fourth quarter. Seattle is rolling right now and they should be able to outscore the Los Angeles Rams in a high-scoring affair. Tre Flowers picked off the pass, and the Seahawks piled on with another touchdown to go up by 17 points. "Maybe we shouldn't have been ahead by that much".

All eyes are going to be on the Seahawks, though, who now own the tiebreaker over San Francisco after their Week 10 overtime win at Levi's Stadium. "He's been nursing the shoulder all along from a year ago and we'll have to see how it goes going forward".

The Bears also trail the Rams (7-5) in the race for the second and final wild card. "We're 8-4 we have four games left, three division games".

What we didn't know is how close these two have become as friends.

Expect to see the Vikings come out looking to take out their frustration on the Lions next week. Wilson was 21 of 31 for 240 yards.

Of course like any team, hitting on their draft picks will be key, and there will also be plenty of free agents to evaluate.

Foreshadowing big trouble down the line if the Vikings do get into the playoffs, their defense could not stop the run game of Seattle on Monday night. Carson had 102, including a 1-yard TD.

Crystal Palace 1-0 Bournemouth: Super-sub Jeffrey Schlupp proves the difference
Good evening and welcome to Selhurst Park, where Crystal Palace beat Bournemouth 1-0 to move up to fifth in the Premier League. Substitute Schlupp grabbed the all-important victor in the 76th minute to send Palace to fifth in the standings on 21 points.

Minnesota's defense has now allowed 42 passing plays of at least 20 yards in 2019.

"Our running game has been a staple of our offence. They're really coming on", Seattle offensive lineman Duane Brown said. Quarterback Kirk Cousins made a quick decision, and the wrong decision, throwing to tight end Irv Smith when Mattison was wide open and in position to secure the first down. She's cooking, so I'm going to get it all back. "It's disappointing", Cousins said.

As mentioned before, the Seahawks almost blew a 34-17 lead in the quarter.

Russell Wilson #3 of the Seattle Seahawks throws the ball during warm-ups before the game against the Arizona Cardinals at CenturyLink Field on December 30, 2018 in Seattle, Washington. Minnesota cornerback Xavier Rhodes appeared to think he had safety help over the top, but no one was there as Moore sprinted for his second TD catch of the season on the next-to-last play of the third quarter. Receiver Stefon Diggs dropped a pass in the first half and had a sideline catch ripped away from him by Seahawks cornerback Tre Flowers, who was credited with Cousins' first interception since the October 13 win vs. Philadelphia.

Seattle's defense played well enough to win.

Dalvin Cook finished the game with 29 yards and a touchdown on nine carries. And yet, it still seemed somehow to get to 34-30. "We like having that", Wilson said.

Tyler Lockett, who was among the sick Seahawks, was held without a catch on three targets.

Cook was battling a chest injury earlier in the week and was listed as limited for Thursday's practice.
