Bears @ 49ers

Recommended Posts



These teams are meeting for the fifth straight year, having split the last four. Despite winning in their last visit to San Francisco in 2014, Chicago's 1-7 record there since winning the Super Bowl (in 1986) is its worst road record against any NFC opponent.

The Bears are the only NFC team to allow no more than one 300-yard passer all season -- Miami's Brock Osweiler had 380 in Week 6. San Francisco's Nick Mullens has averaged 340.3 yards passing in his last three games.

San Francisco has not forced a turnover in a franchise-record six straight games and has just five takeaways all season. No team in the Super Bowl era has finished a season with fewer than 11. The Bears lead the league with 35 takeaways, their most in a season since 2012 (44).

Mitchell Trubisky is 186 passing yards away from becoming the sixth QB in Bears history to throw for 3000 in a season, joining Erik Kramer, Jay Cutler, Rex Grossman, Billy Wade and Jim Harbaugh. He's two TD passes away from joining Kramer, Cutler and Sid Luckman as the only ones to have 25 in a season.

Since being cut by the Bears prior to the 2016 season, Robbie Gould has made 96.3 percent of his field-goal tries (78-of-81) -- best in the NFL (min. 50 attempts). Gould hit a 24-yarder with four seconds left in last year's 15-14 win in Chicago and had another game-winner last week -- 36 yards in OT against Seattle.

With Trubisky and Tarik Cohen both topping 400 yards rushing for the season last week and Jordan Howard leading the team with 773, this is the first time the Bears have had three players rush for at least 400 in a season since 1968 -- Gale Sayers (856), Ronnie Bull (472) and Brian Piccolo (450).
