CHICAGO -- The Chicago Bears' offense put together a respectable drive near the end of the first half which culminated in a Caleb Hanie 25-yard touchdown pass to running back Kahlil Bell and a 14-7 lead at halftime.

On the play, Hanie rolled outside of the pocket, bought some time, then found a wide-open Bell running across the field for the touchdown.

Earlier in the second quarter, Hanie also had the offense on the move, but the drive ended when the quarterback was intercepted when he attempted to connect down field with tight end Kellen Davis. Hanie's pass, which was low, got tipped by Seahawks safety Kam Chancellor and picked off by Earl Thomas in the end zone.

Hanie finished the first half 7 of 15 for 92 yards and with a 61.0 quarterback rating.

Bell is the games leading rusher with 41 yards on nine carries.
