49ers beat the Bears, 33-22. Jimmy Garoppolo and the offense roared to life their QB's hometown, sparked by Deebo Samuel's sensational 83-yard catch/run. SF improves to 3-4 and has a good chance of facing a team QB'd by Colt McCoy next week. This is why they didn't punt 2021
#49ers LT Trent Williams has ankle and elbow, but source says he is expected to play today despite being listed as questionable.
How'd it feel to finally win? Nick Bosa: "It felt amazing."
Elijah Mitchell: 2.98 rushing yards over expectation per attempt today, by far the best of any NFL back
Three consecutive Brandon Aiyuk targets. Kyle Shanahan is officially desperate.
Injury update: #49ers LB Fred Warner was evaluated for a concussion and he was cleared. He's OK.

Underrated player of the day for the #49ers: FB Kyle Juszczyk. He had no carries and one catch but delivered a key block on nearly every one of the team's prominent plays against the Bears.
Josh Norman on his deep ball INT, reference the 49ers' previous DPI rash: "You guys were talking about it all week, so we just made sure to stay on top. I think it was an easy, correctable thing."
Joey Slye has attempted 82 extra points in his NFL career. That was his 10th miss. He is 1 of 3 with the #49ers. Bears 16 49ers 15 Third quarter 5:56
After Mitch Wishnowsky's wife, Maddie, gave birth to the couple's baby girl in the Bay Area last night, the 49ers' punter arrived in Chicago at 7 am Sunday morning. Wishnowsky didn't have to punt a single time, thanks to the 49ers offense
#49ers 2021 day 1 and 2 draft picks in 1st half vs Bears: 1st round pick Trey Lance 0 snaps 2nd round pick Aaron Banks healthy scratch 3rd round pick Trey Sermon 0 offensive snaps 3rd round pick Ambry Thomas healthy scratch
If the 49ers lose Jimmie Ward for any period of time, that'll be another tough blow for their defense. He's been their soundest tackler and a real safety valve — it's hard to undersell how necessary today's offensive revival was. SF will need much more of that
Kyle Shanahan is puzzled why NE didn't drop back to throw on first down.
The early thought is Jimmie Ward's quad injury could sideline him. But the #49ers expect George Kittle and Robbie Gould to be back this week.
Norman on Talanoa Hufanga (5 stops, 1 TFL): "He was everything you asked for and then some. He wasn't scared of the moment. He actually grabbed that moment by the horns and ran with it… He's a rookie but he played like a vet today. He's an energy guy, man. He brings that thump."
"It's always positive when you getting Ws," Samson Ebukam said. "Now we just gotta keep it going."
Former #Bears K Robbie Gould is one of 11 players the #49ers have on injured reserve. He's getting a little rehab work in early at a stadium he knows well. pic.twitter.com/ASwLp9UtJl
The 49ers defense had lost nearly a TD per game in expected points due to penalties entering this contest, more than twice as bad as most NFL teams. Matters haven't changed in 28 minutes here, with Arden Key being the latest SF contributor in that regard
The #49ers ruled out CB Deommodore Lenoir due to personal reasons.
It's time to play your least-favorite -- but steadily running since 2017 -- game show: Who's. That. Niner? * No. 43, S Kai Nacua * No. 53, LB Tyrell Adams * No. 88, TE Jordan Matthews * No. 94, DE Jordan Willis

Marcell Harris' missed tackle at the line of scrimmage results in a 9-yard gain.
Charlie Woerner getting bulk of the TE snaps for the second straight game. Had a nice block on that long Mitchell run to the left.
Veteran Tavon Wilson (No. 32) getting a few snaps as an extra safety on third downs.
It's weird how Justin Fields has chemistry with players he got reps with in training camp, but doesn't have as much chemistry with players he didn't get reps with.
Khalil Herbert has recorded over 11.5 receiving yards in both games as the lead back… Can he do it again? pff.com/news/bet-best-…

#Bears OL on the field for pregame warmups. Appears that rookie 5th rd pick Larry Borom will start at right tackle. This will be his 1st NFL start. He had 3 practices this week after spending 5 weeks on injured reserve.
DeAndre Houston-Carson is just a good football player. Fills in, does his job. Plays tough. Reliable on special teams. Easy to see why Bears coaches love him.

Herbert had 20 carries for 68 yards before the injury. | AP PhotosHerbert took a knee to the head and was down for a few minutes before heading to the locker room. Damien Williams, however, hurt his knee and was out for the game. Plus, a look at the pass-rush slump, third-down success and Allen Robinson’s quiet season. The Bears better hope they have more untapped talent at running back, because their depth chart is running thin again.Already without starter David Montgomery because of a knee
The good news for the Bears is that the defense will have DL Akiem Hicks and S Tashaun Gipson.
The 49ers defense finally earns a third-and-long opportunity to tee off. They lose it thanks to an inability to cover… Marquise Goodwin
Jaylon Johnson slipped in the hole on that long run by the 49ers. Soldier Field turf looks awful today.
Shoutout to Jason Peters on that Fields' TD. 🥞on Warner.

The Chicago Bears lost their third straight game in a 33-22 loss to the San Francisco 49ers on Sunday. But there was a silver lining in rookie quarterback Justin Fields’ impressive performance.
Fields looked the part of a franchise quarterback against the 49ers, where he made plays with his arm and legs, which included a beautiful touchdown pass to Jesse James and Fields’ first 100-yard rushing game.
But perhaps his most impressive feat — and the one that showcased why the Bears traded up for him in the NFL draft — was an improbable 22-yard touchdown run on fourth down
