The Chicago Bears shoot for a perfect start to the preseason when they visit the Seattle Seahawks on Friday.
A dominant fourth quarter led the Chicago Bears to a 20-19 decision over the visiting Jacksonville Jaguars in week two. The Bears trailed 19-7 entering the final 15 minutes with Ka'Deem Carey and Senorise Perry ran for a pair of TD's to squeeze out the win. Jay Cutler threw for 75 yards including a touchdown before having a seat while Jimmy Clausen and Jordan Palmer combined for 167 yards.

The defense struggled to stop the pass with Blake Bortles and and Chad Henne throwing for 290 yards.
