Chicago Bears 7
San Francisco 49ers 6
The Chicago Bears and San Francisco 49ers are battling it out at snowy Soldier Field today, and we keep hoping that instead of playing football in the 2nd half, each team agrees to just build snow men and make snow angels for the final 30 minutes of regulation.
Odds are, though, that they won’t, which means we’ll have to watch more football.
So far today, there has been very little offense for either team, but plenty of falling, sliding, oops-ing, and such. The Bears special teams units are in meltdown mode, with a fumble coming on a kickoff return and then having a punt blocked.
On the Bears final drive of the half, Matt Barkley completed his first two passes of the game, and got a defensive pass interference in the end zone that put the ball on the 1 yard line. On the ensuing play, Jordan Howard got the ball in the end zone, and Connor Barth made it a 7-6 game.
Can Matt Barkley lead the Bears to a productive 2nd half? Stay tuned...
