Podcast: Chicago Bears vs. San Francisco 49ers postgame show
For the Week 8 matchup between the Chicago Bears and San Francisco 49ers at Soldier Field, some fans dressed up in costumes to celebrate Halloween.
In the crowd was Prince, Winnie the Pooh, several creepy clowns, and plenty of others. While Bears fans concealed their identity behind their costumes, the Bears decided to show their true selves.
The 49ers defeated the Bears 33-22 on Sunday to give Chicago its third straight loss, dropping the Bears to 3-5 on the season.
In the loss, rookie quarterback Justin Fields showed signs of progress — making several plays on third down with his legs and through the air. But Fields’ 22-yard touchdown run on fourth-and-1 in the fourth quarter was the play that Bears fans will remember for a long time.
Despite Fields’ 251 yards of total offense (175 passing and 103 rushing) and his two touchdowns, the Bears still lost by double digits. The Bears’ defense could take a large majority of the blame for that.
The 49ers accumulated 467 yards of total offense, had zero turnovers and never punted. Running back Elijah Mitchell went for 137 yards on 18 carries and had a rushing touchdown. Quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo threw for 322 yards and added two rushing touchdowns.
Sunday was another disappointment and The Chicago Audible broke it all down in this week’s postgame show. In this condensed episode, Nicholas Moreano and Mason West broke down everything that happened at Soldier Field.
The guys talk about Fields’ performance and what stood out from the rookie. They also highlighted Allen Robinson’s lack of production in this game, which continues to be a trend for the supposed No. 1 wide receiver.
On defense, well, there wasn’t anything positive to discuss. This game just magnified the issues the Bears have on defense.
