It was another disappointing loss for the Raiders Sunday night at Wembley Stadium where Miami quarterback Ryan Tannehill threw for 278 yards and two touchdowns, leading the Dolphins to a 38-14 victory over Oakland.
San Francisco raced to the early lead than watched their opponent come back take the lead and snuff any attempt of a 49er comeback. The end result being a 23-14 Cardinal victory and a 49er team under .500.
The National Football League has penalized 49ers quarterback Colin Kapernick during Sunday’s game for using inappropriate language to a Chicago Bears player. Video shot by a KPIX 5 photographer may have caught the exchange that prompted the fine.
Colin Kaepernick says he has been fined more than $11,000 by the NFL and he will appeal the penalty for what was called “inappropriate language” by the 49ers quarterback following a fourth-quarter interception in Sunday’s 28-20 loss to the Bears.
“You have a lead like that at home, there’s no way you should lose that game,” John Madden told the KCBS radio morning crew. “Turnovers and penalties will probably do it every time. When you have that lead at home and you have a pretty good defense and a pretty good running game, you have to be able to control that game.”
Jay Cutler passed for three fourth-quarter touchdowns after much of Chicago’s starting defense went down, and the Bears beat the San Francisco 49ers 28-20 Sunday night to spoil their Levi’s Stadium debut.
The San Francisco 49ers won their first game of the 2014 season, but they didn’t generate enough offense consistently on their own. Gifted four turnovers by the Dallas Cowboys, the 49ers didn’t score at all in the second half of the game. They’ll need to make sure they create their own opportunities in Week Two against the Chicago Bears at the Levi’s Stadium opener.
The 49er defense shined in San Francisco’s 28-17 victory over the Cowboys in Dallas Sunday. But John Madden says don’t forget about the offense.
All the problems that seemed to be facing the 49ers were worked out on the field. The offense looked fine, the defense stepped up and the result was a road win, that was far from a lock. f the 49ers can continue to improve, they will be back in the thick of things at the end of the season.
Colin Kaepernick looked ready to lead the San Francisco 49ers to another NFC championship game. Tony Romo looked rusty for the Dallas Cowboys.
