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.

King included his mock draft in his weekly Pro Football in America column, which was posted by Pro Football Talk early Monday morning.

Do the San Francisco 49ers know who they're taking with the third overall pick in the 2021 NFL Draft? Possibly, but if they do, they're not going to tell the public before the pick is announced. 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan and general manager John Lynch spoke with reporters for around 30 minutes on Monday regarding the upcoming draft, which will begin Thursday evening (8 p.m. ET/5 p.m. PT) in Cleveland, Ohio. The main topic of discussion, of course, was what the 49ers will do at pick 3, and where they stand at this point in the process. There have been reports in recent days that the 49ers have made a decision and that they still are debating their decision, but either way, Shanahan wasn't about to give any hints. "So, do we know exactly who we want? Maybe,
