Seahawks shiver and sputter in one-sided loss

CHICAGO (AP) - A week after knocking off the defending Super Bowl champs, Matt Hasselbeck and the Seattle Seahawks played more like a team with a losing record than a division winner.

Little went right for the Seahawks on a wintry day at Soldier Field. The Chicago Bears took control early and sent first-year coach Pete Carroll and the NFC West champs - the only team in the playoffs with a losing record - home by a 35-24 score.

Hasselbeck, who'd engineered the upset of the New Orleans Saints in the first round with four touchdown passes, was 26 of 46 for 258 yards, much of that coming after the game was out of reach. He threw all three TD passes in the fourth quarter.
