Down the stretch, the Bears have actually run more than Cutler has thrown and that dimension helped them win the North. This is why it’s difficult to accept that Seattle can duplicate the pass pressure (six Cutler sacks) from their win simply because the Bears are a totally different offensive team.
Seattle was fortunate last week that the Saints didn't have their proven inside runners like Chris Ivory. The Bears will be geared up to give Matt Forte 20 carries and then work play action and plenty of bootlegs to keep Cutler safe.
Seattle actually outrushed Chicago in October, but the Bears plan to clamp down on Marshawn Lynch and look for defensive end Julius Peppers to make life miserable for rookie left tackle Russell Okung with inside moves, putting pressure on his tender ankle.
