St. Louis, MO (Sports Network) - Colin Kaepernick had two touchdown passes while Frank Gore ran one in as the San Francisco 49ers dominated the St. Louis Rams, 35-11, in an NFC West battle on Thursday.
Coming into the game having dropped their past two games, the 49ers (2-2) needed a win in a big way and turned to their veterans in this divisional struggle.
Kaepernick finished the game 15-for-23 for 167 yards with the pair of scores, and Anquan Boldin caught five passes for 90 yards and a score. Gore totaled 153 yards on 20 carries.
Gore and Kaepernick both lost a fumble, but Vernon Davis returned to play after sitting out last week with a hamstring injury and posted two catches for 18 yards and a score.
Kendall Hunter and Anthony Dixon each posted a touchdown on the ground in the fourth quarter with Gore on the bench.
Sam Bradford was 19-for-41 for 202 yards with one touchdown and one interception for the Rams (1-3), who have dropped their past three after opening the season with a victory.
