The facts: The Seahawks fell to 1-2 with a 25-19 defeat to the Bears at Qwest Field in Week 3.
The upside: Even the worst defeats tend to feature a bright spot or two.
The rest of the NFC West also lost, leaving the Seahawks only one game and a tiebreaker behind the 49ers in the division.
Nate Burleson continued to prove he's all the way back from knee surgery, catching nine passes for 109 yards.
Julius Jones was productive for the second time in three games. The running back is on pace for 1,205 yards rushing, which would easily be a career high.
Rookie Aaron Curry had a sack, forced fumble and two tackles for loss.
Backup linebacker David Hawthorne, starting for the injured Lofa Tatupu, finished with 16 tackles. He picked off Bears quarterback Jay Cutler at the Seattle 12-yard line. The turnover set up a potential 10-point swing, with Seattle scoring a field goal to take a 10-0 lead.
Brandon Mebane dominated at times in his return from a calf injury. He might be the best player on the defense.
Center Chris Spencer played well in his first game back from injury. Seattle needs all the healthy offensive linemen it can get.
The offense put together eight drives of at least seven plays.
Key injured players could return soon, including left tackle Walter Jones.
Looking ahead: The Seahawks visit the Colts in Week 4.
