Richard Sherman Was Ejected After A Brawl Between The 49ers And Bears

But he acknowledged the play bothered the Bears, particularly since Trubisky missed two games with a shoulder injury after Minnesota's Harrison Smith hit him as the quarterback was sliding. The first came early in the second quarter when the 49ers perfectly defended an option play with Bears quarterback Mitchell Trubisky sprinting right before lobbing a backwards pass to running back Tarik Cohen. When all the flags had been picked up and after officials discussed the ramifications for several minutes, Harris' unnecessary roughness penalty was offset by a holding call on Bears OLT Charles Leno. They held the Bears rushing to under 100 yards, and they sacked Trubisky three times. The first points of the game would not come until the second quarter, with the 49ers getting on the board first, courtesy of a field goal from kicker Robbie Gould.

Miller's reaction resulted in an ejection, along with fellow wideout Josh Bellamy and San Francisco 49ers cornerback Richard Sherman.

The Chicago Bears head into their final regular-season game with a shot at an opening-round bye and some extra rest for their first playoff appearance in eight years. He also managed to get Trubisky to play within himself in the second half, with the quarterback taking what the 49ers' zone gave him and leading those extended drives.

Hey, the Bears could beat the Rams in Los Angeles, the Saints could get upset in the divisional playoffs, and the NFC title game could end up in Soldier Field.

The 49ers took a 9-7 lead into halftime after Gould's 23-yard field goal as time expired in the first half. Miller said. "And I don't support that".

Although he's only fifth on the team with 33 catches and 423 yards, Miller leads the Bears with seven touchdown catches and trails only the Falcons' Calvin Ridley (nine) among rookies in that category.

I just think everyone would feel a whole lot better about the Bears' chances if the team that pounded the Rams and Packers had shown up in San Francisco.

With Jackson out, S Deon Bush got his first start of the season and had two solo tackles.

The Bears' other inactives are WRs Kevin White and Javon Wims, QB Tyler Bray, OL Rashaad Coward and DL Nick Williams.
