Pro Football Network: Bears 20, 49ers 20

Ben Rolfe writes: "It is virtually impossible to trust either of these two teams this week. The 49ers cannot seem to get out of their own way and have now lost four straight. The Bears are coming off an embarrassing loss in Tampa Bay, and their offense appears to be in tatters. If any game in Week 8 deserves to end in a tie, it is this one. In a game with struggling teams, take whoever is getting the points at the time. Nonetheless, I’m staying away."

Vincent Frank writes: "Perhaps, this could be a matchup between Trey Lance and Justin Fields. Either way, it is a game between two teams obviously going in the wrong direction. Potentially due to turnover issues for Chicago, we’re going with San Francisco to win an ugly game on the road."

Teddy Ricketson writes: "The Bears are 3-4 and while quarterback Justin Fields is the future, the emphasis is apparently on the future. With star running back David Montgomery sidelined, the Bears offense is off-track and just doesn’t look like themselves. The 49ers should roll here."

Can Justin Fields lead the Chicago Bears to a win over the San Francisco 49ers in Week 8 of the 2021 NFL season? Most NFL writers aren't counting on it.

CBS Sports: 49ers 26, Bears 22

Cody Benjamin writes: "Justin Fields is fresh on the scene just like Trey Lance, and he gets the benefit of home field here. Shanahan is better prepared than Matt Nagy, however, and leans on his run game and defense to eke out a tough win."

Niners Wire: 49ers 17, Bears 14

Marc Delucchi writes: "Allen Robinson is a fantastic target at wide receiver. However, the Bears still have significant questions on their offensive line even after trading up to draft lineman Teven Jenkins in the second round. Even on their stronger side of the ball, Chicago lacks an obvious elite talent besides Khalil Mack. Don’t be mistaken. The Bears should have a strong unit, but will it be as elite as it was in recent seasons?"

Sportsnaut: 49ers 24, Bears 14

Matt Johnson writes: "If we get a Trey Lance vs. Justin Fields matchup, it becomes must-see television. Naturally, this game would be a lot more difficult for one rookie than the other. Likewise, first-year defensive coordinator Sean Desai will be taken to school by Kyle Shanahan." Bears have a 51% win probability
