Arkush: Beating 49ers nice, Bears still have problems

Adjust Comment Print

The San Francisco 49ers offense was always going to be tested on Sunday, going up against one of the league's top defenses in the Chicago Bears. "And then I think it's one of those deals where as you go, you gotta just kind of get a feel for your own game". "We're always going to have our guy's back".

Roquan Smith was all over the place (again), chipping in with some good coverage on Pro Bowl tight end George Kittle and notching two tackles for a loss and his fifth sack of the season. "Like when we had to go back on the field to help win it for our team". He also managed to get Trubisky to play within himself in the second half, with the quarterback taking what the 49ers' zone gave him and leading those extended drives. They held the Bears rushing to under 100 yards, and they sacked Trubisky three times.

The disqualified players were banished to the locker room, but Miller said they still were able to enjoy the victory.

Danny Trevathan made a key interception.

Coaches and officials try to separate Chicago Bears and San Francisco 49ers players during the second half of an NFL football game in Santa Clara, Calif., Sunday, Dec. 23, 2018.

The game turned feisty in the fourth quarter, when San Francisco safety Marcell Harris hit Trubisky after he started sliding on a scramble near the Bears bench.

"It ain't nothin' we have to prove or say", Bellamy said.

The Bears defense did not allow a touchdown for the second time in three games, even when QB Mitch Trubisky's ill-advised lateral to Tarik Cohen was recovered by the 49ers at the Chicago's 26-yard line. "It's a violent game", Nagy said. Obviously you can see what happened. The three-time Pro Bowl lineman suffered a tendon injury in Chicago's win over the New York Jets on October 28.

Sunday, after two of their best performances of the season against the Rams and the Packers, at home, they were sloppy early, a step slower that the Niners most of the first half and, without a few major second-half blunders from a 49ers team clearly in over its head talent-wise, this one might not have worked out well either.
