The first half of the Chicago Bears’ Week 8 matchup against the San Francisco 49ers has been encouraging for the offense but so-so for the defense as Chicago leads 13-9 at halftime.

Chicago’s offense found a nice rhythm in the first half, where they’ve dominated the time of possession 19:15 to 10:45. That’s been thanks to a nice balanced attack with running back Khalil Herbert, who has 66 rushing yards in the first half, and a passing game that showed signs of progress.

Rookie quarterback Justin Fields has looked more comfortable out there, making some good completions and using his legs when he needs to, which has included five rushes for 48 yards in the first half.

While the Bears defense didn’t give up a touchdown, they’ve allowed the 49ers to move the ball with ease in the first half. They’re going to need to tighten up in the second half or else rely on their offense to score more than they have this season.

Here are the first-half stats.
