SEATTLE (AP) Russell Wilson threw for two touchdowns and ran for another score, helping the Seattle Seahawks rout the Chicago Bears 34-6 on Friday night.

Already with a defense expected to be among the best in the NFL again, Wilson and the Seahawks can only hope the offensive efficiency of the past two weeks continues into the regular season.

Seattle scored touchdowns on its first four possessions, and Steven Hauschka hit a 59-yard field goal - what would be a franchise record in the regular season - on the final play of the first half. It was the ninth straight possession Seattle had scored with Wilson on the field.

Jay Cutler played the first half for Chicago and was 12 of 20 for 157 yards and an interception.
