He also led the team in rushing. Gabbert ran six times for 75 yards. His longest rush was a 44-yard touchdown.
Torrey Smith led San Francisco in receiving. He caught two passes for 76 yards. He had one touchdown, which was a 71-yard reception and also won the Niners the game in overtime.
Jay Cutler threw for 202 yards, completing 18 out of 31 passes. He had one interception on the day.
Matt Forte led the team in rushing. Forte carried the ball 21 times for 84 yards. He had one touchdown and his longest run was 15 yards.
Alshon Jeffrey led the team in receiving. He caught four passes for 85 yards. His longest reception was 31 yards.
The Niners finally got a win. They looked a little sketchy at times. But God must be a 49ers fan, because Robbie Gould, the Bears kicker, missed a 35-yard field goal that would’ve won them the game. That went into overtime, which the Niners won. However, San Francisco shouldn’t be depending on luck next game.
