The Chicago Bears beat the San Francisco 49ers in a meaningless Week 13 game last season that ended up costing them three draft picks.
The Bears entered the game 2-9, while the 49ers were 1-10.
San Francisco went on to finish the season 2-14 and landed the second pick in the draft. Chicago finished 3-13 and received the No. 3 selection.
On Thursday night, the Bears traded up to the second pick to take Mitchell Trubisky. They sent a 2017 third-rounder, 2017 fourth-rounder and a 2018 third-rounder to the 49ers. If Chicago had lost to San Francisco in Week 13, they wouldn't have had to part with those picks to get Trubisky.
