49ers look more ready for getaway
NASHVILLE — The 49ers know how to start a very long road trip in winning style.
Colin Kaepernick threw for 199 yards and ran for 68 and a touchdown, helping the 49ers start a two-game road swing by beating the Titans. The 49ers won their fourth straight before heading to London for a game next week against winless Jacksonville.
"I don't know how you define midseason form, but we have strung together a few wins and we feel pretty good about what we're doing right now," Kaepernick said.
Cornerback Tramaine Brock intercepted a pass, defensive tackle Justin Smith had two of the 49ers' three sacks and Kassim Osgood recovered a muffed punt for a TD.
The Titans lost their third straight even with Jake Locker starting after missing two games with a sprained right hip and knee. Locker threw for 326 yards, with two TDs in a fourth-quarter spurt.
San Francisco held the ball for more than 35 minutes, including more than 11 in the third quarter.
