|Bryant's Interception Return Lifts Seahawks
|CHICAGO (AP) -- Red Bryant returned an interception 20 yards for the go-ahead TD in the third quarter Sunday and the Seattle Seahawks kept their faint playoff hopes alive by routing the Chicago Bears 38-14.
Chicago quarterback Caleb Hanie was hit hard on the play by K.J. Wright and threw the ball right into Bryant's arms as Seattle (7-7) scored two TDs in a 50-second span early in the third quarter.
Brandon Browner returned another interception 42 yards for a TD in the final quarter as the Seahawks outscored Chicago 31-0 in the second half.
Marshawn Lynch added two touchdown runs for Seattle.
Chicago (7-7) lost its fourth straight and played most of the game without wide receiver Johnny Knox, who was carted off the field after injuring his back while scrambling for a fumble early in the game.
