Justin Fields’ brilliant TD run not enough for Bears, Jimmy G runs for two TDs as 49ers win

Bears quarterback Justin Fields turned in one of the highlight-reel plays of this NFL season today at Soldier Field. But it wasn’t enough.

On a fourth-and-1 attempt that the 49ers’ front seven appeared to blow up, Fields somehow zigzagged his way across the field to not just pick up the first down but run for a touchdown. That gave the Bears a fourth-quarter lead.

Unfortunately for Chicago, 49ers quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo proceeded to march the offense down the field for a touchdown run of his own. That was Garoppolo’s second touchdown run of the game, a game that the 49ers would end up winning 33-22.

Fields ended up with 103 rushing yards in addition to completing 19 of 27 passes for 175 yards, with one touchdown and one game-sealing interception.

Garoppolo completed 17 of 28 passes for 322 yards in addition to the two rushing touchdowns.

The win improves the 49ers’ record to 3-4 and moves them ahead of the 3-5 Bears in the NFC wild card race.

  1. 2 mid-range lousy teams (read closer to Lions than to Bucs) go head-to-head. Makes for an entertaining but meaningless game and the Bears defense goes to great lengths to make Jimmy G. look like Tom Brady.

  2. A win is a win.

    Credit to Fields for his Russel Wilson-like TD run. With the way Chicago was carrying the momentum in the first half I thought this would be an L. In the end we live to fight another day.

    A reminder to the Faithful though, temper your expectations: be humble or be humbled.

    Go Niners

    No Khalil Mack

    ——————————————

    No Kittle, Mostert, and 1/4th of the starting defense…….
    See how easy that weak excuse is to offset?

  4. Wow it’s almost like Jimmy G is a viable starter in the nfl and Shanahan isn’t an idiot for keeping his rookie on the bench

  5. As a Bears fan the question is why I keep posting about another irrelevant Bears game. Is there a psychiatrist in the house?

  6. Trade Robinson, Montgomery, Hicks before deadline for some picks….Trade coach & GM for good at end of season…

  7. It’s good that the Niners can win without Kittle and Mostert. Both have missed more games than they’ve played in the last two years. I doubt that Mostert will get ever his starting job back. Kittle will, then play two games, and get injured again.
