After a spectacular upset of the Green Bay Packers on Thanksgiving, your Chicago Bears are hoping to up their odds at making the playoffs with a strong showing against a struggling San Francisco 49er’s team who have yet to win on the road.
The Bears are hoping to spark their running game after rolling the Packers for 168 yards and are looking to split time between Matt Forte and rookie Jeremy Langford.
“I wish we could get more plays in a game, so both those guys could get more touches,” offensive coordinator Adam Gase said. “Both of those guys splitting the load like that, we can keep them fresh and … we should only get better from here on out and those guys will get in the flow of it. You don’t want to have three-and-outs where they’re kind of in and out. You want to try to give them a little rhythm and you need to have an 8-to-12-play drive for that to happen.”

The Chicago Bears franchise is reeling after posting their 11th straight loss, going back to November of 2014. The last time the Bears won was on November 23, 2014 against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
Sunday, against the Seattle Seahawks, the Bears were in the game up until the second half as the score was 6-0. But Tyler Lockett brought the Seahawks back to life with a 105 yard 2nd half kickoff return for a touchdown. From there, Russell Wilson and Jimmy Graham took over; Wilson going 20-30 for 235 yards, and Graham caught seven passes for 83 yards and a touchdown.
The franchise has been trying to rid themselves of former GM Phil Emery’s draft picks ever since. The latest victim, Safety Brock Vereen, a 2014 4th round draft selection, was waived yesterday. Vereen, was one of 20 Phillip Emery draft picks. Of the three classes of drafts, two of the six in 2012 are still in football, three of the six draft picks in 2013 are still in football. Vereen was the first of eight 2014 picks to go.
Still, the team must prepare for their next opponent, the rejuvenated Oakland Raiders (2-1) who are coming off a 27-20 win road win over the Cleveland Browns.
