SANTA CLARA, Calif. Cecil Fielder Blue Jays Jersey . -- Down big, Jay Cutler kept his poise on the road while Colin Kaepernick struggled in prime time. Cutler passed for three fourth-quarter touchdowns after much of Chicagos starting defence went down, and the Bears beat the San Francisco 49ers 28-20 Sunday night to spoil their Levis 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. Kaepernick was hit with an unsportsmanlike conduct penalty for "inappropriate language" following Fullers first big play. That gave the Bears first-and-goal on the 3, and Cutler threw a 3-yard TD pass to Martellus Bennett as the Bears went ahead 21-20. Kaepernick threw three interceptions in all, lost a fumble and his cool, a far cry from his breakout start on the Monday night stage nearly two years ago in a rout of the Bears. Cutler sat out that night with a concussion. A sloppy game filled with 26 penalties -- 16 by the Niners -- and a crazy collapse overshadowed the fanfare of the regular-season debut for the sparkling $1.2 billion stadium. The Bears (1-1), in a stretch with six of eight games on the road, go home with some serious momentum despite injuries on both sides of the ball. Five key defenders are hurt: cornerbacks Sherrick McManis (quadriceps) and Charles Tillman (triceps), defensive end Trevor Scott (foot), safety Chris Conte (shoulder) and defensive tackle Jeremiah Ratliff (concussion). The 49ers (1-1) had a 17-7 halftime lead, but missed an opportunity to grab an early lead in the NFC West after the defending Super Bowl champion Seattle Seahawks lost earlier in the day at San Diego. Michael Crabtree caught a touchdown pass on his 27th birthday and Frank Gore ran for a score but also had his 54-yard TD burst negated by Anquan Boldins costly holding penalty. Cutler helped the Bears get on the board with a 25-yard run late in the first half. He took a jarring hit from Quinton Dial with 56 seconds remaining, but stayed in the game and threw a 17-yard touchdown pass to Marshall, who made a leaping, one-handed catch to pull the ball into his body as he fell into the end zone. What a way for Chicago to forget that bitter 23-20 overtime loss to the Bills at home in Week 1. San Francisco didnt give the ball away once in a season-opening win at Dallas. In the first half, the 49ers outgained Chicago 197-93 and out-penalized the Bears 10-7 for 85 lost yards. The much-scrutinized field featured visible chunks of loose sod after new grass was laid for a third time since April. Kaepernick made his first career start against the Bears nearly two years ago, and then held onto the No. 1 job over Alex Smith. Cutler didnt face the 49ers during a November 2012 Monday night game at Candlestick Park. A concussion to now-Chiefs QB Smith thrust Kaepernick into the spotlight that night, and he threw for 243 yards and two touchdowns as the Niners pounded the Bears 32-7. The 49ers were embarrassed at home for the second time in a month. They lost 34-0 in a rout by Denver in the first preseason game in the new stadium. Chicagos patchwork offensive line looked shaky early with centre Roberto Garza and left guard Matt Slauson each sidelined by ankle injuries. San Francisco tight ends Vance McDonald (knee) and Vernon Davis (ankle) were hurt as the 49ers lost a home opener for the first time under fourth-year coach Jim Harbaugh. Cito Gaston Jersey . -- Kole Calhoun homered and drove in three runs, Albert Pujols also went deep and the Los Angeles Angels beat the Chicago White Sox 8-4 Friday night. Cecil Fielder Jersey . It was the start of one nice night for the goalie and the Minnesota Wild. Backstrom made 33 saves in his first win of the season and the Wild defeated the Chicago Blackhawks 5-3 on Saturday in a rematch of their first-round playoff series. https://www.cheapbluejays.com/2406h-dave-stieb-jersey-blue-jays.html .Y. - The New York Yankees made it official Saturday, announcing the completion of a seven-year deal with free-agent outfielder Jacoby Ellsbury and a one-year contract for returning starter Hiroki Kuroda.At the completion of the preliminary round of the 2014 Olympic mens hockey tournament, Canada is where most people expected them to be; unbeaten and the top team of Group B with a bye to the quarter-finals. Canadas goaltending has been solid - having allowed just two goals in three games and offensively, the team has dominated puck possession and scored 11 goals. Only the United States and Finland have scored more. However, Canadas 3-1 win over Norway and 6-0 rout of Austria left many fans unconvinced of whether or not the team could compete with fellow tournament juggernauts the United States, Sweden and Russia. The team failed to answer those questions on Sunday with a 2-1 overtime win over Finland, with their only goals coming from defenceman Drew Doughty. Team Canada has failed to find offensive lines that can consistently produce and have split up NHL teammates Sidney Crosby and Chris Kunitz, as well as Jonathan Toews and Patrick Sharp in attempts to find scoring. Following Canadas victory over Finland, head coach Mike Babcock promised further line changes to try to spark his slumping forwards. With Canada exiting the group round with many questions still to be answered including whom to pair with Crosby can the team compete with the steady units of the United States and Sweden, or with the host team of Russia? Canada will not play again until Wednesdays quarter-finals, when they take on the winner of Switzerland vs. Latvia. Switzerland has proven to be a tough team in this tournamennt and, while they have struggled to produce offence, the team has allowed just one goal in three games to Sweden in a 1-0 loss. Dave Stewart Blue Jays Jersey. Goaltender Jonas Hiller has yet to allow a goal and has proven to be one of the top goalies in Sochi. Though Canadas goaltender controversy appears to be put to bed, many questions still loom over the defending Olympic champions. Atop the list questions is who will be scratched for Canadas quarter-final game? Through three games Matt Duchene, Patrick Sharp, Martin St. Louis and Dan Hamhuis have all sat once, while reigning Norris Trophy winner P.K. Subban has been scratched twice. Another major question for Canada is how to spark its forwards, since defenceman Drew Doughty and Shea Weber have accounted for six of the teams 11 goals. Winger Jeff Carter is the only forward on the team with multiple goals he scored a hat trick against Austria. An unconvincing group round is not new for Canada, as the team was forced to play in the qualification playoffs at Vancouver 2010 after a shootout win over Switzerland and a regulation loss to Team USA. The team went on to win four straight games and the gold medal. In fact, Canada has not posted a perfect preliminary round at the Olympics since the 1998 Games in Nagano, Japan. With so many questions still to be answered for Team Canada and without the home ice advantage they enjoyed in Vancouver, the question has to be asked; is Canada ready to beat the top teams at Sochi 2014? As always its Your! Call. ' ' '
