With a loss last week to the Rams in a rescheduled game, a playoff berth for the Seahawks looks extremely unlikely. They’re 5-9, a full two games out with three games left. Pete Carroll is on a contract through 2025, but the conclusion of this season will have a lot of hoopla surrounding Russell Wilson. While Wilson and his camp have never spoken on it, trade rumors are continuing to swirl around the star quarterback, who has struggled at times since returning from a finger injury he sustained in Seattle’s first meeting against Los Angeles.

In the exact opposite situation, you have the Chicago Bears. While they have a quarterback they drafted and trust in Justin Fields, it’s hard to imagine them not blowing things up this offseason. Matt Nagy’s seat is scorching, Allen Robinson will be a free agent, and Fields’ offensive line play has been horrendous this year. While Fields has struggled at times, he’s simply looked like a rookie, and that’s reflected in his record with Chicago.

With that in mind, this will be a take-notes game for the leadership of both the Bears and Seahawks. While their seasons are presumably nearly over, they’ll both have time to retool heading into next year. If the Seahawks move into a new quarterback situation and the Bears reorganize their franchise, it may take a while, but these are two franchises who are used to at least some degree of success. Their fans won’t wait long.

Despite their offensive ineptitude, the Seahawks head into this game 6.5-point favorites. With their offense going the way that it has, that could be a difficult cover. The Bears, however, are even worse offensively, particularly in key situations. Last week they converted just 16 percent of their third down attempts, while going 20 percent in the red zone scoring touchdowns. With Fields and Andy Dalton sidelined with injuries, Nick Foles is expected to start for the Bears.
