Breaking down the Bears' 15-14 loss Sunday over the San Francisco 49ers.
THREE MOMENTS THAT MATTERED
1. 49ers kicker Robbie Gould turned toward the Bears' sideline and started to celebrate. The former Bears kicker, who was cut just prior to the 2016 season opener after 11 seasons in Chicago, connected for the game winner from 24 yards out. Gould made five field goals on the day and was responsible for all 15 of San Francisco's points.
2. Making his first start for the 49ers, quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo fired a perfect strike on 3rd-and-9 with just over two minutes remaining. Wide receiver Trent Taylor beat cornerback Cre'Von LeBlanc inside over the middle for the catch and sprinted 33 yards to the Bears' 18-yard line. The long reception set the stage for Gould's celebration.
3. Rookie Tarik Cohen cut left and then up the sideline, taking a punt from his own 16-yard line all the way to San Francisco's 17 with 10:39 left in the game. The Bears should have started the drive in the red zone already leading 14-12, but Ben Braunecker was flagged for an illegal block far behind the return. Instead, the Bears started at their own 14 and eventually punted with 5:35 left.
