The Chicago Bears came into thier week with the San Francisco 49ers as huge underdogs. They don’t have a lot of talent on their roster and many believed that the 49ers would dominate them at Soldier Field.
However, with some bad weather and good play, the Chicago Bears were able to pull out a huge upset win at home. They won the game by a final score of 19-10 thanks to some really good play in the second half.
The first half of the game didn’t go well for them but they really turned it on in the second half. The offense had a plan for the second half and how they were going to handle things in the heavy rain conditions. They did what they needed to do and got the big win.
Justin Fields was only okay (and even worse than okay at times) in the first half but he really turned it on later on. He was able to make some big throws that allowed the Bears to score some big-time touchdowns. They were able to drive down the field just enough to score some points against a very good 49ers defense.
Fields finished the game 8 for 17 with two touchdown passes and one interception. Those aren’t outstanding stats by any means but they were able to do just enough when it mattered most to get the win.
The Chicago Bears got what they needed from everyone to get a big win.
The Chicago Bears also had a really nice performance from their defense. They only allowed Trey Lance and the 49ers offense to score 10 points. They also had a touchdown of their own as Eddie Jackson had a pick-six for the Bears which was one of the stunning turning points of the game.
Chicago looked like the disciplined and hard-working team that went 3-0 in the preseason. This win gave Matt Eberflus his first win as the head coach of the Chicago Bears. He did a great job sticking to his plan and getting just what they needed to earn a hard victory in bad conditions against an elite team.
There is going to be a lot to break down about this game but the main focus needs to be on how the Bears are clearly building towards something good here. As talent comes in more and more over the years, this team could really be on the rise. Hopefully, the surprise wins continue to come.
