|Bears Awful in San Francisco; Lose 10-6
|SAN FRANCISCO (AP) -- Frank Gore ran for 104 yards and a touchdown, Jay Cutler threw a career-high five interceptions, with his last coming in the end zone on the game's final play, as the San Francisco 49ers snapped a four-game losing streak by beating the Chicago Bears 10-6 Thursday night.
Niners quarterback Alex Smith won for the first time in eight starts since Week 2 in 2007, 17-16 against St. Louis, but it was interesting until the end.
After 49ers coach Mike Singletary elected to punt against his former team on fourth-and-6 from the Chicago 34 with 2:53 left, Cutler drove the Bears to the San Francisco 12 with 13 seconds remaining. After an incompletion on first down, Michael Lewis picked off Cutler's next attempt in the end zone as time expired.
