Monday night loss drops Bears in power rankings

Chicago drops out of most analysts' NFL power rankings' top 5.


Bears down 27-7 heading to 4th quarter

The Chicago Bears are just one quarter away from falling to 7-3, as they trail the San Francisco 49ers, 27-7, heading into the fourth quarter on Monday night.

Colin Kaepernick continued his strong play in his first NFL start in relief of Alex Smith. Kaepernick opened the scoring in the second half with a 10-yard touchdown pass to Michael Crabtree. The touchdown strike capped a five-play, 62-yard drive and gave San Francisco a 27-0 lead.

Jason Campbell took several hard hits in the third quarter and was checked out by trainers at one point, but he returned to finally get the Bears on the board with a 13-yard pass to Brandon Marshall. Unfortunately for the Bears, Campbell threw an interception on the team's next possession.

For the game, Kaepernick is 15-of-20 for 232 yards and two touchdowns. Campbell is 9-of-16 for 76 yards with one touchdown and two interceptions. San Francisco has racked up 325 yards of offense to just 112 for Chicago.


Bears getting pounded by 49ers at halftime

Things have not gotten any better for the Chicago Bears on Monday night, as a 10-0 first quarter deficit has been extended to 20-0 going into halftime against the San Francisco 49ers.

Chicago has been thoroughly dominated on both sides of the ball. The Bears managed just 35 yards of offense in the first half, including -1 yards passing. Their normally stout defense has been shredded for a whopping 249 yards.

Colin Kaepernick and the Niners' offense made the score 17-0 early in the second quarter after an eight-play, 96-yard drive. Kendall Hunter's 14-yard run capped off the drive, which took just four minutes off the clock.

Following an interception of Jason Campbell, San Francisco moved 25 yards to get deep into Chicago territory. The Bears' defense finally made a play, sacking Kaepernick on third down to force a field goal. David Akers connected on a 37-yard kick, his second field goal of the game.

Kaepernick has completed 12-of-15 passes for 184 yards and one touchdown. Vernon Davis leads San Francisco in receiving, notching five catches for 72 yards and a score. Frank Gore has 12 carries for 50 yards.

Campbell is 4-of-8 passing for 21 yards and has been sacked three times by Aldon Smith. Matt Forte has 11 carries for 35 yards.


Bears trail 49ers, 10-0, after 1st quarter

With starting quarterback Jay Cutler out with a concussion, the Chicago Bears planned on using their dominant defense to compete Monday night against the San Francisco 49ers. Things have not gone according to plan, as the Bears trail the Niners after one quarter, 10-0.

Niners quarterback Colin Kaepernick, starting in place of the injured Alex Smith, torched the Bears' vaunted defense in the first quarter. Kaepernick engineered two long scoring drives to start the game to give the Niners their 10-0 lead, completing 8-of-9 passes for 126 yards and one touchdown. Tight end Vernon Davis caught three passes for 37 yards and the touchdown, while rookie Kyle Williams caught two passes for 60 yards, including a big 57-yarder to set up Davis' 3-yard score.

Bears quarterback Jason Campbell has gotten off to a slow start, completing 1-of-3 passes for nine yards. Campbell has also been sacked once. Matt Forte has six carries for 22 yards.
