With Colin Kaepernick again effectively leading the offense and a defense that got downright offensive on its own, the 49ers were simply too much for a hot New Orleans team on Sunday afternoon, taking control after halftime on the way to a convincing 31-21 victory over the Saints at the Superdome.
As most of the pregame buildup indicated, San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick will make his second consecutive start in New Orleans on Sunday.

Dashon Goldson turned Marques Colston upside down just as the receiver leaped for a pass over the middle.
As Colston landed on his head and lay motionless for several seconds, safety Donte Whitner snagged the deflected pass on New Orleans 42 and weaved his way past Drew Brees and Co., all the way to the end zone.
That was but one of the big plays turned in by a San Francisco defense...
Even though Colin Kaepernick led the 49ers to a win over the Saints, tight end Vernon Davis nevertheless voiced his support for benched starter Alex Smith.
Alex Smith suffered a concussion and was taken out of the game in Week 10 versus the St. Louis Rams, which ended in a 24-24 tie. Backup QB Colin Kaepernick came into that game in relief duty and played decently, completing 11 of 17 for 117 YDS. He also rushed 8 times for 66 YDS and scored a touchdown. These are pretty good numbers considering that his previous work in this...
