Rattay was listed as San Francisco's emergency third quarterback.

It was the third start of 2004 for Dorsey, who replaced Rattay earlier this season when he had a separated throwing shoulder.

Chicago's starter Sunday night was Craig Krenzel, creating a rematch of quarterbacks from the collegiate national championship game following the 2002 season. Krenzel led Ohio State over Miami, quarterbacked by Dorsey, in the Fiesta Bowl for the national title.
