The San Francisco 49ers managed to pull off their second win of 2017, beating the Chicago Bears 15-14. Niner Noise takes a stock watch for various players and units after Week 13.
Head coach Kyle Shanahan doesn’t have to worry about his 2017 San Francisco 49ers being the first one-win team in franchise history.
This, after the Niners knocked off the Chicago Bears 15-14 on the road in Week 13.
The game also marked the first start for newly acquired quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo in a San Francisco uniform. He didn’t disappoint, effectively leading his offense over four quarters, as the Niners outgained the Bears 388 yards to 147.

Had Garoppolo and the 49ers been more effective in the red zone, though, this contest wouldn’t have been as close as it ended up being.
Nevertheless, kicker Robbie Gould secured the victory with a go-ahead field goal with just four seconds remaining in regulation. It was one of five successful field goals Gould had against his former squad. And considering the Niners didn’t reach the end zone, Gould’s performance certainly helped his stock improve.
But what of some of the other players?
In this recap, we’ll go back and look at which players and/or units saw their stocks rise or fall during this contest.
And it’s always nice to do so following a 49ers victory.
