The San Francisco 49ers were stunned by the Chicago Bears, 28-20, after blowing a 17-point lead. Two of their touchdowns came from ideal field position that was provided by quarterback Colin Kaepernick.
Kaepernick committed four turnovers throughout the game, including three interceptions. The quarterback was fully aware of his performance being detrimental to the 49ers, and he did not hold back when asked to self-critique his performance, calling it terrible.
However, 49ers head coach Jim Harbaugh rushed to his quarterback’s defense. “I think he was seeing things good. He threw some pretty darn good balls that got intercepted. Tip of the cap to the defense,” Harbaugh said to the Sacramento Bee.
Bears rookie cornerback Kyle Fuller came up with two of those interceptions, and the 49ers receivers know that they blew it when they had a big lead. “We need that killer instinct. We gave that game away,” wide receiver Michael Crabtree said.
This game puts both teams’ records at 1-1.
