Hasselbeck Leads Seahawks Over Bears
CHICAGO (AP) -- Matt Hasselbeck threw for a season-best 242 yards and a touchdown and Seattle's defense sacked Jay Cutler six times in a 23-20 victory over the Chicago Bears on Sunday.

Cutler was in trouble much of the game, and completed just 17 of 39 for 290 yards. He missed last week's game with a concussion after being sacked nine times by the Giants the previous week.

The biggest hit came in the closing minutes when Devin Hester ran a punt back 89 yards, equaling an NFL record with his 13th kick return for a touchdown.

During the play, Earl Bennett lowered his shoulder and leveled punter Jon Ryan. Ryan stayed down for several minutes before walking off.

The Seahawks (3-2), coming off a bye week, got a needed lift by beating a team that was tied for the league's best record. Chicago fell to 4-2.
