The Chicago Bears lost 15-14 to the San Francisco 49ers on Sunday at Soldier Field as 49ers kicker Robbie Gould scored the winning field goal in the last few seconds of the game.

The Bears led most of the game by holding the visitors to field goals instead of touchdowns.

In his first start as quarterback for the 49ers, Arlington Heights native Jimmy Garoppolo directed long drives down the field before the Bears defense finally stopped them from scoring touchdowns.

Former Bears kicker Gould hit 5 field goals for the game. Gould became the Bears' franchise scoring leader in his 11 years on the team.

Tarik Cohen's 61-yard punt-return TD was the highlight of the game for the Bears as he began at his own 39-yard line, retreated back to his 25-yard line and then sprinted through a big gap untouched to the end zone to give the Bears a 14-6 lead in the first half.
