Week 2: vs Chicago Bears

Mark and Joe say: Good matchup. Colin Kaepernick feasted on the weak Dallas D during the season opener, throwing 16/23 for 201 yards, two TDs and zero interceptions Week One, adding 5/11/0 rushing to his passing numbers. Vernon Davis commanded the TDs last Sunday, seeing six targets for 4/44/2 receiving, while the receivers were led by Anquan Boldin (nine targets for 8/99/0 receiving). Michael Crabtree (four for 2/25/0) and Steve Johnson (two for 2/33/0) helped keep the chains moving in the opener. Chicago's defensive front was porous last season, allowing a league-worst 161.4 yards per game on the ground, so teams didn't test the secondary all that often during 2013. When they did throw the ball against the Bears, Chicago averaged 233 passing yards allowed per game (tied for 14th in the NFL), with 19 interceptions (tied for eighth in the NFL) and 31 sacks (tied for last in the NFL) generated by the defense. The defensive backs were ball-hawks, but the defensive front didn't generate much pass pressure. The Chicago defense had no answers for Russell Wilson and the Seahawks during the third preseason game. They allowed touchdowns on each of the first four possessions (the second two TDs were passing scores to Jermaine Kearse and Christine Michael), and also gave up seven straight third-down conversions to Seattle. The score was 0-31 in favor of Seattle by the start of halftime. Not too good, folks. Buffalo's pop-gun passing attack managed 16/22 for 167 net yards passing, one TD and one interception during an OT victory at Chicago last week. There is still plenty of work to do on D for the Bears, folks. Advantage, San Francisco - however, keep in mind that the Chicago rush D is awful so the game plan may tilt more towards Gore and Hyde than Kaepernick this week.

Recent Game Summaries

2014 Week 1 vs DAL (2 / 2 / 33 / 0 rec)

Johnson's first catch as a 49ers came with him wide open on a deep hitch for a 21 yard gain. He also beat the defense on another short hitch later in the game, but like Crabtree he was well behind Boldin and Vernon Davis in the pecking order.
