Bears suffer in San Francisco

November 18, 2012|By Jack M Silverstein | For RedEye

The Bears have won four of their past six games against San Francisco dating to 2001. That's the good news. The bad news? They've lost nine of 10 in San Francisco, including seven straight. Here's a look at the losing streak.

Dec. 14, 1987

49ers 41, Bears 0: In a showdown of two 10-2 teams, Niners backup QB Steve Young posted his first career four-touchdown game in this vicious shellacking.

Dec. 24, 1989

49ers 26, Bears 0: A year after the Niners beat the Bears in the NFC championship game at Soldier Field, the Bears' troubled 1989 season ended with six straight losses and another shutout in San Francisco.

Dec. 23, 1991

49ers 52, Bears 14: The 49ers— probably feeling sad about missing the playoffs for the first time since the 1982 season—unleashed their frustration on the playoff-bound Bears.

Jan. 7, 1995

49ers 44, Bears 15: En route to their fifth Super Bowl title, the 49ers made short work of the upstart Bears, who surprised the league by even making the playoffs, let alone advancing to the second round.

Dec. 17, 2000

49ers 17, Bears 0: In Jerry Rice's final game as a 49er, the Bears made didn't let the Hall of Famer beat them. Mission accomplished. The problem? Terrell Owens caught a then-NFL record 20 balls for 283 yards and a touchdown.

Sep. 7, 2003

49ers 49, Bears 7: The Bears' worst opening day loss of the Super Bowl era. Just brutal.
