A Tale of Two Halves; Takeaways from 49ers 33-22 Win Over the Bears
It was almost like watching two different games when replaying the 49ers 33-22 win over the Chicago Bears in Week 8. San Francisco played from behind in the first half, not recording their first touchdown until the third quarter in the punt-less game.

"You know how it is - you lose a couple in a row in the NFL, and it's tough," Kyle Shanahan said postgame. "We've lost four in a row. So that was very needed for a lot of people."
San Francisco now improves its record to 3-4 with Sunday's win. Here's a look at several takeaways from the game.
