Rice TD gives Seahawks 23-17 OT win over Bears

CHICAGO (AP) - Russell Wilson connected with Sidney Rice on a 13-yard touchdown with 7:33 left in overtime to lift the Seattle Seahawks to a wild 23-17 victory over the Chicago Bears yesterday.

 

     Unbeaten in five home games, the Seahawks finally figured a way to win on the road after dropping five of their first six, and knocked off the NFC North leaders in the process.

 

     This one sure was dramatic.

 

     Seattle took a short-lived lead late in regulation on Wilson's 14-yard pass to Golden Tate, only to watch the Bears' Robbie Gould boot a 46-yard field goal as time expired to send it into OT.

 

     The Seahawks (7-5) got their only other road win at Carolina.
