Players of the game

• Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson attempted a career-high 37 passes, threw for 297 yards and two touchdowns. Just as importantly, he was not intercepted by the defense that entered leading the league in take-aways.

• Bears receiver Brandon Marshall caught 10 passes for 165 yards.

Play of the game

Marshall's 56-yard catch in the final minute was unbelievable. The Bears had the ball at their own 14-yard line with 20 seconds left and trailing by three points. Jay Cutler scrambled, and threw downfield to Marshall, who made a leaping catch over cornerback Richard Sherman. The Bears kicked the game-tying field goal two plays later, forcing overtime.

Turning point

Seattle faced third-and-10 at the Bears' 25 in overtime when Wilson completed a 12-yard pass to Doug Baldwin on a comeback route. It was the last of three third-down conversions on that drive, the first two converted on Wilson runs. Seattle scored on its next play.

Seahawk surprises

• Seattle won an overtime game for the first time since 2005.

• The Seahawks had their two longest drives of the season, driving 94 yards for their first touchdown and then 97 yards in the final four minutes to take the lead.

By the numbers

459 — Yards of total offense for Seattle, its most since Nov. 14, 2010.

117 — Consecutive passes since Wilson was last intercepted.

13 — Points Seattle scored in the last 7:51 of the game.

10 — Points Seattle scored in the first 59:36.

Injuries

Seahawks — Left guard James Carpenter suffered a knee injury and was replaced in the first quarter. Bears — Receiver Earl Bennett did not play in the second half because of a concussion. Safety Chris Conte left because of illness. Tim Jennings suffered a shoulder injury on Seattle's overtime possession. Linebacker Brian Urlacher left the game before Seattle's final play.

Quoteworthy

"We had to have it. We're in the playoffs right now. The way we feel, we've got to keep winning. That's the mentality we have. We've got to play every game hard. We've got to keep winning and see where it takes us." — Seahawks fullback Michael Robinson.
