Kaepernick was running for his life through much of the night, taking six sacks as the 49ers fell behind early and never found a way to keep up with Peyton Manning. The 49ers left Blaine Gabbert finish the game in mop-up duty. Kaepernick has managed 1,719 passing yards with 11 touchdowns and five interceptions in seven games as well as 260 rushing yards. He'll square off with the Rams in Week 9 after the 49ers take a bye.
Kaepernick was fined in mid-September for using inappropriate language in a Week 2 game against the Bears. Kaepernick, who was flagged for unsportsmanlike conduct after jawing at Bears defensive end Lamarr Houston, appealed the fine.

Kaepernick also ran three times for 37 yards and leads all quarterbacks with 242 rushing yards this year.
Kaepernick's second touchdown throw was his most impressive. Rolling left to escape a heavy rush, Kaepernick tossed an 11-yard strike over two defenders to Anquan Boldin in the back of the end zone. Kaepernick later hit a wide-open Michael Crabtree for a 32-yard touchdown, giving him his first three-touchdown performance this season. The 80-yarder to Lloyd was the longest completion of Kaepernick's career.
He visits the Broncos for Sunday Night Football.
Kaepernick, who ran 10 times for 18 yards, hit a wide-open Steve Johnson for a 9-yard score in the second quarter. Kaepernick's 29-yard completion to Brandon Lloyd set up the go-ahead field goal midway through the fourth quarter.
Having accounted for seven touchdowns and five turnovers, Kaepernick visits the Rams in Week 6 on Monday Night Football.
