NEXT OPPONENT: CHICAGO (5-7)
The Bears play host to Washington on Sunday with a chance to get back into the NFC wild-card race after an 0-3 start.
OPPONENT WEEK 13
San Francisco 26, Chicago 20
Blaine Gabbert hit Torrey Smith on a 71-yard TD pass to give the 49ers the overtime victory at Soldier Field. Bears kicker Robbie Gould missed two FG attempts, including one that would have won the game.
WHAT TO WATCH FOR
Jay Cutler, quarterback
Cutler played his worst game of the season against San Francisco, throwing a pick-six a week after the Bears stunned the Packers in Green Bay. He threw for 211 yards in a 23-20 loss to the Vikings on Nov. 1 at Soldier Field.
The extra three days to prepare should help the Vikings get a bit healthier for their return home. Outlook: Horns up.
