We’re live blogging the Chicago Bears vs. the San Francisco 49ers.
If you’re done setting your fantasy lineups and are waiting for kickoff on the lakefront, here’s some pregame reading material: https://wgnradio.com/2017/11/29/hoges-10-bears-things-with-tensions-rising-trubisky-co-badly-need-a-win/
Bears start on defense. Jimmy Garoppolo making his first start.
Huge boost getting Danny Trevathan back. Not so much with Chris Prosinski
Dumb penalty from Robertson-Harris hands San Fran another first down.
Robbie Gould out to attempt a 33 yarder. And it’s good. Some Bears fans showing their appreciation for good ol’ #9.
Bears seem to get to 3rd and 8 quicker than any team in the league.
Trubisky sacked. Offense with negative yards on their first possession.
Kyle Fuller has been active these first two series.
And Fuller comes up with the interception! I’ll take a bow.
I have Inman going in one of my fantasy leagues. And, yes, my team is that bad.
Bears waste the “free play” after Dumerville jumps offsides.
Inman with the TD catch! Bears! Joe’s fantasy’s team! Everybody is happy!
End of the first quarter. 7-3 Bearsssss.
Kyle Fuller’s big game continues. A “hit-stick” style tackle on Carlos Hyde on 3rd down sets up another Robbie Gould FG.
7-6 Bears after Gould’s field goal.
Cohen with a monster gain, but there’s a flag on the play…
Holding on Leno
Trubisky with a nice scramble on 3rd & 10. Reeeeal close to the first down marker.
Fox challenging the spot
They moved the ball, but lose the challenge? Probably because the ball was still short of the line to gain, but still.
LaMarr Houston with the sack. He rejoined the team this week after being claimed off of waivers.
The ultimate “No, no, no, no… Yes” play. Cohen reverses his field big time and ends up taking a punt back for a 61 yard TD.
I’d love to know how many yards Cohen actually ran on that play.
Those are the kinds of things I just don’t understand. I can cope with the losses during a rebuild, but playing veterans who aren’t any good over draft picks is just plain nonsense.
Robbie Gould is 3-for-3 on the day. 14-9 approaching halftime.
Bears lead 14-9 and will receive the 2nd half kickoff.
Again, I don’t care about wins. I want to see Trubsiky throw the ball more in the 2nd half.
CBS stat-tracked Cohen’s punt return TD. 61 yards in the offical book, but he covered 127 yards total.
49ers have 3rd & 8 from around midfield.
I wonder if the lights are at Soldier Field. The south half of the field is pretty dark.
49ers convert back-to-back 3rd & 8’s. Bears’ D looks tired.
Robbie Gould’s fourth FG cuts the Bears’ lead to two. 14-12, just under two minutes left in the third quarter.
Please pass the ball on this upcoming drive. Preferably to Inman.
Around the division:
Packers 17 Buccaneers 10
Lions 7 Ravens 20
Vikings 7 Falcons 9
Three and out. Pathetic.
Great ST tackle from captain McMannis
49ers will start around midfield down just two.
Christian Jones with a sack to setup 3rd and long.
3rd and 14. Bears NEED this stop.
Cohen with another electric return. But there’s a flag on the play…
68 yard return negated by a block in the back. Ball comes all the back to the Bears’ 14 yard line.
The drive stalls. O’Donnell with a nice punt pins the 49ers inside their own 10 with about 5 minutes left.
Danny Trevathan injured. 3rd and 1 for SF.
OB ” They are running on the Bears, they are passing on the Bears.”
They are kicking on the Bears
OB “Bears win this game it is still a loss”
Garoppolo is 25-36 for almost 289. Trubisky 12/ 15 for 102.
Coming in to help close out with Joey Joe Joe. Romano been on fire all day
Shocked MT10 is over 100 yards passing
If nothing else today I learned how to spell Garoppolo
I keep having to copy and paste it
Bears should have let Hyde score there.
49ers can milk it and kick a FG basically at the buzzer
Robbie Gould 15 – Bears 14. 4 seconds to go.
Bears going for the Windy City Miracle. Doesn’t work. Flag on the play anyway.
Keep an eye out for the Hoge & Jahns podcast. They’ll record as soon as they’re done with their postgame duties. Adam & Adam will breakdown all the action from Soldier Field: https://wgnradio.com/category/hoge-and-jahns/
