Colin Kaepernick led a big 49ers' victory over the Bears

The San Francisco 49ers played an excellent game against the Chicago Bears, on Monday Night Football. The 49ers, with Colin Kaepernick playing quarterback in place of the concussed Alex Smith, won 32-7, moving their record to 7-2-1. The 49ers now have a one-and-a-half game lead in the NFC West.

Facing a short week of preparation, the 49ers must start getting ready for their next game. The 49ers will face the Saints on the road, in New Orleans. The Saints started the year in a state of turmoil due to the "Bountygate" suspensions.

After starting the season with a 1-4 record, the Saints have now won four of their last five games. The Saints are arguably the hottest team in the league and quarterback Drew Brees has them firing on all cylinders.

Let's take a closer look at some of the key things to look for in this game.
