San Francisco 49ers 10 – Chicago Bears 19

Highlights:  The Bears erased a 10-point third-quarter deficit by scoring 19 unanswered points to beat the 49ers 19-10 in the season opener Sunday at Soldier Field. After a sluggish start, quarterback Justin Fields threw a pair touchdown passes in the second half to Dante Pettis and Equanimeous St. Brown, and a fourth-quarter interception by safety Eddie Jackson  set up a Khalil Herbert rushing touchdown. Coach Matt Eberflus earned his first win as an NFL head coach and expressed his excitement about starting 1-0. “It’s a happy feeling, it really is,” Eberflus said. “When you see they’re out of timeouts and the clock’s going down and the rain is coming down. And it’s a good feeling. It was exciting and for the first victory, and I’m excited for the guys too. I’m excited for everybody, offense, defense, kicking. I’m excited for the organization. It was fun. Read more at:  https://www.chicagobears.com/news/bears-rally-for-season-opening-win-over-49ers-2022-week-1game-recap  (Gabby Hajduk/ Chicago Bears.com)
