(SEATTLE) -- Russell Wilson and the Seahawks were in midseason form Friday as Seattle crushed the Chicago Bears, 34-6, in the third preseason game for both clubs.
Wilson threw two touchdown passes and ran for another in leading the Seahawks to points on all five of his drives in the first half. The third-year pro completed 15-of-20 passes for 202 yards and connected with Jermaine Kearse and backup running back Christine Michael for scores.
Marshawn Lynch ran for a touchdown, Kearse finished with 63 yards on four catches and Steven Hauschka kicked a 59-yard field goal in the rout.
Jay Cutler and Chicago's starters were decidedly less impressive in their only half of action. Cutler tossed for 157 yards on 12-of-20 passes, while Matt Forte was limited to 17 yards on three carries.
The Bears had a touchdown reversed and another nullified by a Brandon Marshall offensive pass interference penalty late in the second quarter. Cutler was intercepted by Jeremy Lane following Marshall's infraction, and Hauschka capped the one-sided half with his long field goal for a 31-0 lead.
