Chicago Bears Overcome Early Deficit to Topple San Francisco 49ers

The Chicago Bears mounted an impressive comeback on Sunday night to beat the San Francisco 49ers, 28-20. Besides stunning the 49ers by rebounding from a 17-0 deficit in the second quarter, the Bears also managed to spoil San Francisco’s first regular season game in the recently opened Levi’s Stadium. Before the Bears began their rally late in the first half, the 49ers appeared to be well on their way to handing Chicago its second loss of the season. After several early mistakes allowed the 49ers to record two touchdowns and a field goal in the first half, WR Brandon Marshall energized the Bears with an amazing one-handed touchdown catch. Marshall -- who had been listed as questionable on Chicago’s injury report ahead of last night’s game due to a sprained ankle -- was in top form throughout all four quarters. “I’m very proud of our football team, the way they overcame adversity last week by going back to work taking it one day at a time,” said Chicago Bears head coach Marc Trestman in a press conference. “They went to work and played four quarters tonight.” Make sure you can watch the Bears play every quarter at Soldier Field this season.

In the second half, Chicago’s defense kicked into high gear and held San Francisco to just one field goal during the final two quarters. However, the Bears really came to life in the fourth quarter when QB Jay Cutler connected with Marshall once again in the end zone to cut San Francisco’s lead to six points. Two crucial interceptions made by backup cornerback Kyle Fuller in the fourth quarter set up the subsequent go-ahead touchdown by Martellus Bennett, as well as the final touchdown of the night that gave the Bears a solid 28-20 victory. Including the two snagged by Fuller, 49ers QB Colin Kaepernick threw a total of three interceptions in last night’s game. Besides giving the Bears a much-needed lift after their disappointing 23-20 overtime loss to the Buffalo Bills at home in Week 1, Sunday’s win also delivered some long overdue payback to Kaepernick and the 49ers for their last matchup in 2012, when San Francisco crushed Chicago, 32-7.

Five key Bears defenders were hurt during the game, including starting cornerback Charles Tillman, who exited in the third quarter with an injury that was later revealed to be a torn right triceps.
