Game facts: 49ers at Bears

Something's gotta give: The Bears are the only NFL team yet to score 24+ points in a game this year. The 49ers have allowed 30+ points in eight of 11 games (most in NFL). 

Mr. 4th quarter:Matt Barkley had a 39.1 passer rating through the first three quarters last week, but posted a 94.3 passer rating in the fourth quarter.

Bright spot: RB Jordan Howard has averaged 103.5 rush yards per game since Week 8 (2nd-most in NFL). 

Stout run defense:Chicago has allowed just 3.8 yards per carry this season (T-7th best in NFL). 

Dearth of takeaways: The Bears are on pace for just seven defensive interceptions this season (would be fewest in team history).
