Halftime: Kaepernick-led 49ers won’t go away in 17-13 battle with Bills

There is no doubt that the San Francisco 49ers offense looks better being led by quarterback Colin Kaepernick. The bad news is that the 49ers defense looks about the same as it continues to give up big numbers to running backs this season. This time, it is to Buffalo Bills running back LeSean McCoy. He rushed for 106 yards in the first half. Sadly for the Bills and their fans, McCoy went down with 31 seconds left in the half.


Update:
McCoy has been cleared to return, per Matt Barrows of the Sacramento Bee.

The Bills currently lead the 49ers 17-13 at halftime.

Unlike the Blaine Gabbert-led unit, the 49ers offense was finally able to connect on a deep play to Torrey Smith. Kaepernick and Smith connected on a 53-yard touchdown pass in the second quarter.

The 49ers scored on three straight possessions, which is a sharp contrast from their previous games this season when the 31st-ranked offense had not been able to produce anything. Kaepernick completed 8 of 11 passes for 135 yards and a touchdown during the first half of play. Torrey Smith, whose best game saw him catch 55 yards worth of passes, had 76 yards in the first half. In fact, leading into to this game, Smith had just 106 yards this season.


Carlos Hyde leads the 49ers in rushing with just 37 yards. Bills quarterback Tyrod Taylor is 10 of 15 for 85 yards.

The 49ers are trying to snap a four-game losing streak. Their last five-game losing streak was during a 0-5 start in 2010. San Francisco entered the game as 7.5-point underdogs and were 9-point underdogs earlier this week.

By David Bonilla

San Francisco 49ers rookie defensive tackle Javon Kinlaw is looking to be a game-wrecker during his pro career. He is looking forward to frustrating opposing offensive linemen, making running backs feel like they are hitting a brick wall, and making quarterbacks run for their lives. Kinlaw joined Training Camp Rewind this week, and team reporter Keiana Martin asked the rookie defender which quarterback he is most looking forward to sacking. His answer might surprise you. "Jimmy, honestly," Kinlaw responded. "My own quarterback." Now, Kinlaw isn't going to be sacking Jimmy Garoppolo any time soon. They are teammates, after all. So why did Kinlaw name his own team's
