John Fox Sets New Record in Bears' Loss

Bears quarterback Mitch Trubisky drops back to pass against the Detroit Lions on Nov. 19 at Soldier Field

The 49ers' victory against the Bears was their second this season, and they earned it behind Gould and quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo, who started his first game after being acquired from the Patriots just over a month ago.

Garoppolo was able to move the ball with aplomb against a good Bears defense, despite having a bad offensive line in front of him (the middle was a sieve), next to no run game behind him (Carlos Hyde looked awful and the team averaged 3.2 yards per carry), and questionable receiving depth around him (it's no surprise the 49ers were able to sign Louis Murphy mid-season) - what happens when the 49ers have a competent roster around him?

Robbie Gould connected on his fifth field goal of the game with four seconds remaining to give the 49ers lead.

For the Bears' brass, evaluating the loss to the 49ers extends beyond Garoppolo's performance (26-for-37, 293 yards) or Gould's triumphant return (field goals of 33, 28, 35, 34 and 24 yards).

Catching the ball at the Bears' 40-yard line, Cohen proceeded to take a route that surely had coaches, teammates and fans screaming "No! No! No!"


The 49ers trailed 14-12 at the end of three quarters despite significantly better offensive numbers. It was the receiver's first score as a Bear.

San Francisco out gained the Bears 388-147 and dominated statistically for most of the day.

Mitchell Trubisky has admittedly been inconsistent as a rookie, but he's throwing to a ridiculous ensemble of no-name receivers who struggle to separate and have no clear, dominant traits. Pinion was the last hope, but he was blocked out of the play, leading to a touchdown that gave the Bears a 14-6 in the second quarter.

NOTES: Bears RB Tarik Cohen became the first rookie since Gale Sayers in 1965 to notch a receiving touchdown, a rushing touchdown, a passing touchdown and a punt return for a touchdown in a single season, according to the NFL. He's the first player to accomplish that since Terry Metcalf in 1975. It looked like a confident unit - when was the last time you could say that about San Francisco's offense?

The Bears travel to Cincinnati to take on the Bengals for the first time since the season opener in 2013, which the Bears won, 24-21, behind two touchdowns from Jay Cutler. Trubiskiy recovered his own fumble. It was his first sack with the 49ers. Marsh was active to replace Lynch. Add a quality corner and another pass rusher to this team, and the Bears could have one of the best defenses in the National Football League next season.
