If there’s any questions about the Seahawks offense, Russell Wilson tried to put them to bed on Friday when he and the rest of the Seattle offense dominated a usually skilled Bears defense.

Wilson threw two touchdown passes as well as a running touchdown to help perpetuate the Seahawks over the Bears 34-6.

Wilson went 15 for 20 for 202 yards, including touchdowns of 12 yards to Jermaine Kearse and 7 yards to Christine Michael. He found Percy Harvin and Kearse four times and threw to seven receivers in the first half. Wilson also had a 7-yard touchdown run.

“I thought the way that we played tonight was exceptional,” Wilson told ESPN.com. “We were in a rhythm. We were great on third downs. We were great in the red zone. We’re really starting to put things together.”

Seattle has been all about the first half in the preseason. Last week against San Diego, Seattle went for 260 yards of offense and 24 points in the first half. Friday, Seattle had 250 yards of offense and 31 points against Chicago.

“The entire offensive group is just executing at a good clip right now,” head coach Pete Carroll told ESPN.com. “Russell is really committed to what is happening. We’ve got a really nice receiving corps where the guys are all making their plays and a lot of guys are contributing to it. … We have good guys to go to, and they really believe in what we’re asking them to do. I think we’re just hitting at a pretty good clip right now. Hopefully we can keep it going.”

Seattle is 2-1 in the preseason so far and will play at Oakland Aug.28.
