The fracas started when 49ers safety Marcell Harris hit the Bears quarterback when he slid on a scramble for a first down late in the fourth quarter. Harris was handed a 15-yard penalty for his hit. Trubisky's teammates took exception to the hit and a scuffle ensued with punches being thrown and San Francisco cornerback Richard Sherman and Chicago receivers Joshua Bellamy and Anthony Miller all getting ejected.

"Because we've been in this situation so many times and have come up big, it's nearly expected of us", cornerback Prince Amukamara said. "I felt like they went over the top, and I responded over the top".

Perhaps the best thing that can be said about the Bears' 14-9 win over the San Francisco 49ers Sunday at Levi's Stadium is this: The Bears, again, proved they're a team that knows how to win in almost any given set of circumstances.

Australian Open brings in final set tie-breaks
The French Open does not have a final set tiebreak, with matches continuing until a player secures a two-game lead in the decider. Tiley reckoned the longer tiebreakers will "lessen some of the serving dominance" that can be found in the seven-point ones.

The disqualified players were banished to the locker room, but Miller said they were still able to enjoy the victory. The 49ers managed just one first down before settling for Robbie Gould's 30-yard field goal. After the 2-minute warning, Chicago appeared ready to ice the game on a third-down completion to Allen Robinson.
