San Francisco 49ers vs. Chicago Bears: Live Score, Highlights and Analysis

49ers topple the Bears, 32-7 on Monday Night Football

49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick had his coming out game -- in his first NFL start no less. Against the fierce Bears defense, the 49ers No. 2 QB went 16-of-23 for 243 yards, 2 touchdowns and no interceptions. 

Kaepernick was in complete control and looked like a seasoned veteran. He was relaxed but completely aware, as he carried the 49ers offense to a huge win on primetime. He threw ropes all over the field with great touch, connecting with his playmakers and distributing the ball well. 

The secondary storylines of the night are the three tandems that had big nights: Bowman & Willis, Hunter & Gore and Smith & Smith. 

These three duos operated in sync and at a high level all night. It all contributed to a great overall team performance. But highlighting the defensive side of the ball was Aldon Smith. 

Smith finished the night with 5.5 sacks and a safety. He rocketed himself to No. 1 in the NFL's sack category and perhaps the Defensive Player of the Year discussion as well. 

Tomorrow, the NFL pipeline should be buzzing about Colin Kaepernick and Aldon Smith. But what might overshadow Aldon's brilliant performance will be the inevitable question: Is Alex Smith on his way out at the hand of Colin Kaepernick? 

At least following the 2012-13 season, there could be some significant organizational changes.
