Welcome to Golden Gate Sports’ live blog of Monday night’s primetime matchup between the San Francisco 49ers and the Chicago Bears. Follow along as we break down all the action!
The San Francisco 49ers now have the second best record in the NFC, and take a 1 1/2 game lead in the NFC West. Thank you for joining me for tonights bLive Blog of the Niners-Bears on Monday Night Football.
A neutral zone infraction is the perfect end to this game, it wraps up the Bears play tonight.
Niners will improve to 7-2-1 after this complete domination of a team people were saying could be the best in the NFC
Chicago has just fallen apart without Jay Cutler. But the fact is their O-line is to blame.
An excellent hit keeps the Bears from gaining 1st down yardage
Jim Harbaugh’s team has a 25 point lead in this game with less than 4 mins left and he still looks like his heart is going to explode.
6:30 left and the Bears are attempting to put together a drive here late.
That is 5 sacks now for Aldon Smith.
Harbaugh wins the challenge and the result is a safety. 32-7 Niners.
Jim Harbaugh is challenging the ruling on the field.
That was Aldon and Justin again, just destroying the Bears tonight.
The Smith Brothers strike again! Aldon and Justinb combine for another sack on Campbell
Patrick Willis just tackled Forte one handed
A bad hold makes it 1st and 20
Akers 3rd FG makes the score 30-7
Chicago recovers the fumble on the kickoff return by Hester.
Coaches tend not to be prisoners of the moment. Alex took the Niners to NFCCG last season & had completed 25 of his last 27 passes.

I love watching Jim Harbaugh create plays to throw off the defense, yes that was Leonard Davis that shifted out to wideout.
Fantastic throw to Vernon Davis.
Kaepernick is so good at using his feet to get out of trouble.
Gore powers his way to yet another 1st down
For those of you who read my Pre-Game Analysis, I am the first one to admit I was wrong. This game neither low scoring or a great defensive battle.
Dashon Goldson picks off Jason Campbell for the Niners 2nd interception of the night
Hester’s brilliant -17 punt return should really spark Bears now

Devin Hester just ran BACKWARDS to get away from the 49ers punt team. That might be the first time that I have seen Hester look afraid.
There have been a few times tonight I think Colin has shown his age, but overall he is doing very well.
With 3:43 left in the 3rd quarter the Bears finally get on the board after a touchdown pass to Brandon Marshall. 27-7 Niners.
Forte is just not able to do anything against this Niners D
Aldon Smith just layed Jason Campbell out again
Questionable call extends the bears drive
And now Campbell is hurt. It just isn’t the Bears night.
This is the closest thing to a successful drive the Bears have been able to put together
Carlos Rogers just CRUSHED Campbell.
Extra point makes it 27-0 Niners.
TOUCHDOWN NINERS! Kaepernick to Crabtree for six!
37 yard pass to Manningham! What a Play!
11 yard run by Gore means another first down for SF.
With his 13.5 sacks Aldon is only half a sack away from his career high!
That is a creer high 4 sacks for Aldon Smith tonight!
Here we go for the 2nd half.
What a dominating first half by San Francisco. Just special to watch.
Willis and Bowman are putting on a inside linebacker clinic right now. I think i saw Urlacher taking notes.
Ted Ginn brings the punt back 20 yards as Anthony Dixon gets called for a questionable illegal block.
Ahmad Broos just blew that play up from about as far away as possible.
That sack will be recorded as Aldon Smith’s 3rd of the night.
Are you kidding me! Justin and Aldon hook up for another sack!
SF 49ers. Best offensive line in football

As good as he is playing Colin needs to be careful and not take so many hard hits.
Chicago did not manage to get back to the line of scrimmage at all on that drive.
Justin Smith stuffs the run yet again, 4 tackles tonight.
Devin Hester brins it back 20 yards to their own 30
Akers adds another Field Goal to make it 20-0 Niners.
Kaepernick gets hit for the first time and just pops right back up
