Mitch Trubisky's teammates already had witnessed him miss two games earlier this season with a shoulder injury caused by a late hit from Vikings safety Harrison Smith after the quarterback had given himself up by sliding. Sherman, Josh Bellamy and Anthony Miller all were involved in a sideline fight and traded slaps.
The Bears had a chance to close out the game later on the drive but an Allen Robinson fumble gave the 49ers one last chance. They're headed to the playoffs for the first time since the 2010 team won the division on the way to the NFC title game.
The Bears' defense did not allow a touchdown for the second time in three games, even when Trubisky's ill-advised lateral to Tarik Cohen was recovered by the 49ers at the Bears' 26-yard line. "Because we're a family and we want to take care of those guys and take a lot of pressure off them and score a lot of points so they don't have to play all-world every single week".
Yes, the 49ers lost on Sunday afternoon, and everyone knew they would.
Watch: Richard Sherman, Others Ejected After Bears-49ers Brawl
The 49ers took a 9-7 lead into halftime after Gould's 23-yard field goal as time expired in the first half. Instead of running it, Mullens threw up a desperation pass. Gould was cut by the Bears before the 2016 season. He seemed to have 20 yards of open field ahead of him. I knew the offense was going to have a tough time moving the ball on the Bears defense, but everyone counted the 49ers out today and they nearly proved everyone wrong, again.
"I've just got to handle the situation better", Mullens said. Sherman began the play on the opposite side of the field and was one of the last players to enter the fracas.
A second fumble recovery came at the most crucial juncture of the game.
