No Smith, No Problem… 49ers Roll!
The San Francisco 49ers didn't have their starting quarterback, but it didn't matter as they were able to ease by the Chicago Bears 32-7 on Monday Night Football.
The 49ers move to 7-2-1 on the season while the Bears fall to 7-2 and lose for the first time on the road all year.
The Chicago Bears were without their starting quarterback as well and it showed. Jason Campbell went 14-22 for 107 yards, 1 TD and 2 INT's. He was also sacked 5 times on the night by a very productive San Francisco defense.
However, the 49er's backup quarterback Colin Kaepernick fared much better, passing for 243 yards and two touchdowns in his first career start.
Both teams expect their starting quarterbacks to be back for their next game.
The San Francisco 49ers will travel to New Orleans on Sunday and play the surging Saints, while the Bears will host their NFC North rivals, the Minnesota Vikings.
