    Tale Of The Tape: San Francisco 49ers At Arizona Cardinals

    The 49ers let a 17-0 lead against the Chicago Bears slip away, and while it was not all Colin Kaepernick’s fault, it was clear that he bore quite a bit of responsibility from the look on his face while standing on the sidelines and from a statistical point of view.
