It’s snowing in Chicago, harkening back to a simpler time.
A time before the forward pass.
The Bears and 49ers are refusing to throw the ball since the conditions aren’t conducive to it, which at least keeps the clock rolling.
They’ve combined for just three pass attempts early into the second quarter, with Matt Barkley’s two ahead of Colin Kaepernick’s one. The 49ers have done a better job of running, with five first downs to the Bears’ single one.
This game is really something.
