Bears vs. 49ers: Final Grades, Analysis for San Francisco
No overtime please.

It's a final, with the 49ers dominating the Bears at home 32-7 to run their record to 7-2-1 and their... uh... unbeaten streak to four games.

The Bears, meanwhile, have dropped two straight after their 7-1 start and are now in a dogfight with the Green Bay Packers in the NFC North.

The 49ers completely outclassed the Bears from the opening kickoff, and it's hard to say which side of the ball was more outstanding. On one hand, Colin Kaepernick was sensational in his first career start, throwing for two touchdowns and posting a 133.1 passer rating.

On the other hand, the defense had six sacks and two interceptions, with Aldon Smith setting a "Monday Night Football" record with five sacks. 

The 49ers look like the best team in the NFL regardless of who's under center for them, but they've looked like this a couple times before too, only to have letdowns. 

San Francisco will play against another hot team, the 5-5 Saints next week at New Orleans and it remains to be seen who'll start at quarterback for them. The Bears will try to pick up the pieces against the rival Minnesota Vikings at home.
