Chicago Bears lose Battle of the Bad to Robbie Gould, 49ers

Bears quarterback Mitch Trubisky drops back to pass against the Detroit Lions on Nov. 19 at Soldier Field Chicago Bears lose Battle of the Bad to Robbie Gould, 49ers

-Cohen had a second long punt return called back due to Ben Braunecker's illegal block above the waist in the fourth quarter to nullify a 67-yard return early in the fourth quarter.

Gould, who was cut by the Chicago Bears past year, literally beat his old team all by himself.

Jimmy-G had to work a bit harder for his win than Brady did, however, as the former Patriots QB led the Niners on a 92-yard drive to set up Robbie Gould's game-winning fifth field goal of the game. "It was one of the more fun games I've been a part of".

Quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo completed 26 of 37 passes for 293 yards in his first start with the 49ers.

In another twist to the homecoming story, Gould said his father-in-law taught Garoppolo in high school.

Gould's big day was a benefit of an efficient San Francisco offense that had no issues until getting deep inside Bears' territory.

Garoppolo made his first start with the 49ers at Soldier Field - approximately 25 miles from where he grew up in the Chicago suburb of Arlington Heights, Illinois. Pinion was the last hope, but he was blocked out of the play, leading to a touchdown that gave the Bears a 14-6 in the second quarter.

Cohen might not ever become Hester - because Hester really was one of a kind - but he's rounding into a really nice player for the Bears.

Gould was responsible for all 15 of the 49ers' points, hitting five field goals, including a 24-yarder with two seconds remaining. A win is the flawless start for the Jimmy G era in San Francisco as they defeated the Bears 15-14. Kicking the winning field goal sure made it a sweet return to Soldier Field.

From Connor Barth to Roberto Aguayo to Cairo Santos, the Bears' kicker situation has been a disaster since Gould was let go. He needs an easy-target guy and a vertical threat who can consistently create offense, and if the Bears are serious about making Trubisky the face of their franchise, they have to give him a chance to reach his potential.

"To come in here, get a win like that, and to get a game-winner, I don't think I could have written it any better to be honest with you", he said.

"I mean, there's two ways to handle it: positively and negatively", Trubisky said. "We were in NY past year, he didn't speak to me, I didn't see him today".
