CUTLER HAS 111.3 PASSER RATING
BEARS HAVE 437 YARDS TOTAL OFFENSE
CUTLER HAS 43 YARDS RUSHING WITH TWO TDs
He is just the second quarterback in NFL history to have two passing touchdowns and two rushing scores in a postseason game (Otto Graham, Cleveland, two times: 1954 and 1955 NFL Championship Games).
Cutler is the first Bears quarterback to run for a touchdown in a postseason contest since Jim McMahon also ran for two (2 yards and 1 yard) in Super Bowl XX.
OLSEN HAS 113 YARDS RECEIVING
He had a reception of 20-plus yards on each of the Bears first three touchdown drives: 58-yard touchdown; 33 yards to the Seattle 12 on the second touchdown drive and 22 yards to the Seahawks 41 on the third.
Olsen is the first Bears player with 100 yards receiving in a postseason contest since WR Bernard Berrian had 105 versus Seattle in the divisional playoff following the 2006 season (1/14/07).
TAYLOR HAS 1-YARD TD RUN
CUTLER CONNECTS WITH OLSEN FOR 58-YARD TD
The 58-yard reception was the longest of Olsen's NFL career. He is the fifth Bears tight end all-time to have a TD reception in the playoffs, joining Desmond Clark (1/15/06 vs. CAR, 1 yard), Keith Jennings (1/1/95 at MIN, 9 yards), James Thorton (1/6/91 vs. NO, 18 yards) and Pat Dunsmore (12/30/84 at WAS, 19 yards).
BEARS DEFENSE HAS STRONG OUTING

The Monsters of the Midway forced Seattle into four three-and-out drives, including three on their first four possessions. The Bears offense scored a touchdown after each three-and-out drive by the Chicago defense, equaling 28 points.
