(CBS) As you well know by now, the Bears rallied for a 28-20 win against the 49ers in Santa Clara last night. In what was a rather improbable win given the atrocious start for Chicago, here are a few fast facts…
— Before Sunday night, the last time Chicago had won in San Francisco was Oct. 13, 1985, during its famed Super Bowl season. In that 26-10 win against the defending Super Bowl champions, the Bears took an early 13-0 lead and sacked Hall of Fame 49ers quarterback Joe Montana seven times, which at the time was the most in his career. That game was notable for another reason, too. Lineman William “The Refrigerator” Perry got the first two carries of his career in the game, and they went for a combined four years. It was apparently a shot back at the 49ers, who in the previous season’s NFC championship game had used guard Guy McIntyre at fullback. Bears coach Mike Ditka wanted to get the last word. Chicago had lost eight straight in San Francisco after that 1985 win.READ MORE: COVID-19 In Illinois: 2,022 New Coronavirus Cases, 44 More Deaths
