The 49ers put in a second straight dominant performance on Sunday on the back of old skool ground and pound offense coupled with solid five-turnover strong defense. Kaepernick put up numbers that were modest at best, but it was more than enough to get the job done. Will Kaepernick be able to rise to the challenge when the 49ers find themselves in a shootout or having to rally from behind? We'll have to wait and see. Injuries continued to haunt the 49ers on Sunday, but the day also saw the team's backups step in to the breach and perform at a high level. The 49ers have to feel good about where they stand. They've wrapped up a grueling five game start to the season and now head in to an easier stretch of games with a 3-2 record and sitting just one game back of Seattle.
