49ers fall to Cutler and the Bears

SANTA CLARA, Calif. (AP) - Jay Cutler passed for three fourth-quarter touchdowns after much of Chicago's starting defense went down, and the Bears beat the San Francisco 49ers 28-20 Sunday night to spoil their Levi's Stadium debut.

Cutler threw three TD passes to Brandon Marshall, two in the wild fourth quarter, as Chicago erased a 13-point deficit and quieted the sellout crowd. Cutler threw for two scores in a 27-second span early in the final period, aided by the gutsy play of a backup cornerback.

Kyle Fuller made two late interceptions for the depleted Chicago secondary, and the first set up the go-ahead score. San Francisco's Colin Kaepernick was hit with an unsportsmanlike conduct penalty for "inappropriate language" following Fuller's first big play.
