The Bears again played a tight game at home. This time, they didn't escape with a win.

Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson threw a 12-yard touchdown pass to Sidney Rice in overtime to give Seattle the 20-17 victory.

The Bears drove for a field goal in the final 24 seconds of the game to send it to overtime. Brandon Marshall caught a 56-yards pass and Robbie Gould made a 46-yard field goal following Golden Tate's 14-yard touchdown catch, which put the Seahawks in the lead temporarily.

The Bears (8-4) fell back into a tie for first place in the NFL North with the Packers (8-4), the team they will host in Week 15.

Earl Bennett caught a 12-yard first quarter touchdown pass before leaving the game with a concussion at halftime. Matt Forte caught a 12-yard third quarter touchdown.
