Jay Cutler threw three fourth-quarter touchdown passes, and the Chicago Bears completed a comeback from a 17-point deficit, spoiling the regular-season debut of the 49ers' new stadium with a 28-20 victory over San Francisco on Sunday night. The Bears intercepted 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick three times, then stopped San Francisco on downs at the Chicago 17 with a little more than a minute to go to record their first win of the season after a disappointing loss to the Buffalo Bills in the opener.
