But on a day when Mitch Trubisky played an excellent game and suffered only one brain camp - a horribly ill-advised lateral to Tarik Cohen, resulting in a fumble - the Bears' offense managed only 14 points, and in spite of an 11-minute edge in time of possession, really didn't travel well at all.
The NFC North champion Chicago Bears have ruled out injured Pro Bowl safety Eddie Jackson and linebacker Aaron Lynch out for their game at San Francisco on Sunday. They held the Bears rushing to under 100 yards, and they sacked Trubisky three times.
The 49ers defense came to play today.
Cody Parkey missed a 37-yard field goal that would've opened the scoring, and penalties on Marcus Williams and Nick Kwiatkoski affected starting field position on a punt and a kickoff, respectively.
Bears wide receivers Anthony Miller and Joshua Bellamy, along with 49ers cornerback Richard Sherman, were ejected from the game following the play. "We've got his back, so whatever goes on, we've got him".
The Bears came up short on third down but went for it on fourth down; successfully converting a quarterback sneak, which led to the Bears unleashing this simple but savage tweet.
Yes, the 49ers lost on Sunday afternoon, and everyone knew they would.
Taliban ecstatic that US is pulling troops from Afghanistan
Since the withdrawal, what little forces remained in the country, retreated mostly to training and the advisory role. It is not clear if U.S. peace envoy Zalmay Khalilzad or the Afghan government had been aware of Mr Trump's plans.
49ers: RB Matt Breida (ankle), WR Dante Pettis (left knee) and TE Garrett Celek (concussion) all left the game with injuries in the first half and didn't return.
The Bears have allowed a total of one touchdown in the past three games. Miller said. "And I don't support that".
Chicago improved to 11-4 on the year after escaping with a 14-9 win.
Though he's just fifth on the team with 33 catches and 423 yards, Miller leads the Bears with seven TD catches and trails only the Falcons' Calvin Ridley (eight) among rookies in that category.
With Jackson out, S Deon Bush will get his first start of the season.
