CHICAGO, Jan. 14 (UPI) -- Robbie Gould's 49-yard field goal in overtime Sunday gave the Chicago Bears a 27-24 victory over the Seattle Seahawks in an NFC Divisional Playoff.
Chicago quarterback Rex Grossman went 21-of-38 passing for 282 yards with a touchdown and an interception. Thomas Jones gained 66 yards on 21 carries and scored two touchdowns for the Bears (14-3), who ended a three-game post-season losing streak that stretched back to 1994.
Bernard Berrian caught five passes for 105 yards and a TD, and Rashied Davis had four catches for 84 yards for the Bears, who will be at home against the New Orleans Saints next Sunday in the NFC Championship. The winner will go to the Super Bowl Feb. 4.
Seattle managed just 306 yards total offense, and failed to convert on seven third-downs with three yards or less to go.
The Bears had problems of their own moving the ball downfield in the extra period, but Grossman found Davis with a 30-yard pass on 3rd-and-10, and Gould came on three plays later to kick the game-winning field goal.
