Gameday: Chicago Bears at San Francisco 49ers

Nov 19, 2012 at 8:29 AM--


Quarterback Colin Kaepernick will make his first career start in place of Alex Smith, who is still recovering from a concussion from last week.

The San Francisco 49ers host the Chicago Bears in a matchup of the top two scoring defenses in the NFL. The 49ers hold a 31-29-1 edge in the all-time series, including a 21-12 advantage at home. This game also marks the fourth matchup between the two clubs on Monday Night Football, and the first since 1991.

Last week, the 49ers (6-2-1) and St. Louis Rams played to a 24-24 tie. It marked San Francisco's 14th tie since joining the NFL in 1950, and their first tie since 1986.

Running back Frank Gore led the way for the 49ers offense, rushing for 97 yards and 1 touchdown on 21 carries and wide receiver Michael Crabtree added 5 receptions for 70 yards and 1 touchdown. On the other side of the ball, linebacker Navorro Bowman led the team with 15 tackles and linebacker Aldon Smith tallied 2 sacks.

Last week, Kaepernick replaced Smith after he suffered a concussion and was 11-of-17 for 117 yards and rushed for 66 yards and a touchdown against St. Louis.

Bears quarterback Jay Cutler, also recovering from a concussion, has been ruled out of tonight's game. Jason Campbell will start for Chicago.

The Bears (7-2) are coming off of a 13-6 loss to the Houston Texans.

2019 49ers vs. 2021 49ers, Part 1 (Offense)

How well do the 2021 49ers stack up to the 2019 team? Lately I have listened to some podcasts and read some tweets comparing the current San Francisco 49ers team (2021) to the 2019 team that fell just short of winning the Super Bowl. I find the comparison interesting. And since many people quickly assume the 2021 49ers are not as good as the 2019 team, I wanted to take a look for myself. So as we prepare for the team to report on Tuesday, let's compare the two teams, position by position. For the purpose of this very scientific experiment, we will assume everyone is healthy (even though that never happens). Let's start on offense. The defensive comparison is coming soon.

Kyle Juszczyk spent his first four NFL seasons with the Baltimore Ravens before signing with the San Francisco 49ers in 2017. The best fullback in the league re-signed with the team in March, ensuring he remains in the Bay Area through the 2025 season. It sounds like Juszczyk has no regrets about the decision to remain with head coach Kyle Shanahan. It's an offensive scheme that suits him and takes advantage of his unique versatility. Juszczyk may not have had the same opportunities with another organization. "I definitely have had the most fun in San Francisco because I am a little more featured," Juszczyk said this week on The Ross Tucker Football Podcast. "'Featured' is different as a fullback.
