Kaepernick Leads the Niners to a 31-21 Win Over Saints in New Orleans

49ers starting QB Alex Smith was not inactive for Sunday’s game vs the Saints. Despite that, he still watched from the sideline, as backup Colin Kaepernick led the team to a huge 31-21 win over the Saints.

Kaepernick threw for a touchdown and ran for another, while Ahmad Brooks and Donte Whitner each returned an interception for a score as the Niners pushed their mark to 8-2-1.

The Niners backup QB went 16-of-25 passes for 231 yards with the touchdown and an interception in his second career start.

Smith suffered a concussion during the 49ers’ 24-24 tie against the Rams two weeks ago, and although Smith was cleared for contact earlier this week, Kaepernick remained the starter for San Francisco.
