NFC Divisional round game thread: Seattle at Chicago

Ok, here's a game that has PLENTY of connections to the St. Louis Rams.

The Seahawks are here because the Rams laid a big egg in week 17 of the regular season, handing Pete Carroll's team the NFC West title. Of course, you can't say the Seahawks didn't take advantage of their free ticket, upsetting the defending champion New Orleans Saints last week.

On the other side of the field, a couple of former Rams coaches have led the Bears to where they are this season: head coach Lovie Smith, a former Rams DC, and Mike Martz, their OC, who holds a special place in the hearts of all Rams fans, both loved and hated.

Chicago is favored by 10 points, which, to be, sounds like a good day to bet on the Seahawks. EIther way, it could be a good game.
