The Cowboys are 8-4, but if the season ended today they would not be in the playoffs. After Thursday’s visit to Chicago, they go to Philadelphia, host Indianapolis, and finish at Washington.
The Chicago Bears are going to try to reach the .500 mark when they face the Lions in the opening game of the Thanksgiving Day triple header.
It’s hard to win when you play like the 49ers did Sunday Night. When you get called for 13 penalties and commit 4 turnovers its hard to win in the NFL. They still outplayed Chicago and had a chance late to win, but fell short.
Jay Cutler passed for three fourth-quarter touchdowns after much of Chicago’s starting defense went down, and the Bears beat the San Francisco 49ers 28-20 Sunday night to spoil their Levi’s Stadium debut.
The San Francisco 49ers won their first game of the 2014 season, but they didn’t generate enough offense consistently on their own. Gifted four turnovers by the Dallas Cowboys, the 49ers didn’t score at all in the second half of the game. They’ll need to make sure they create their own opportunities in Week Two against the Chicago Bears at the Levi’s Stadium opener.
The first NFL regular season game played at Levi Stadium has the San Francisco 49ers hosting the Chicago Bears. On paper, Chicago is very similar to San Francisco’s week 1 opponent the Dallas Cowboys. The Bears have an offense that can score points at will, an inconsistent passer and a less than spectacular defense.
The Packers, Bears and Lions are tied at 5-3 in the NFC North with the Bears and Lions facing off Sunday.
Quarterback Nick Foles, who led the Eagles to victory over the Buccaneers last Sunday, may start against the Cowboys this Sunday as Michael Vick continues to nurse a hamstring injury.
The 49ers-Bears game Monday night on CBS 5 will feature two division leaders, two backup quarterbacks and two top defenses.
The injury report for the San Francisco 49ers and Chicago Bears is unremarkable except for one big name, Jay Cutler. Chicago will be without it’s starting quarterback who suffered a concussion last week and has not been cleared to play. Even without Cutler, San Francisco will have their hands full on Monday Night as they faced a very talented team.
