Struggling Colin Kaepernick Loses Job; Benched For Blaine Gabbert
Down by 18 points and struggling to do anything up until that point, head coach Chip Kelly benched QB Colin Kaepernick in favor Blaine Gabbert. He only managed to throw 4 total yards in 3 quarters of play.

Take a look at the numbers:
Even worse when you realize the 49ers didn’t complete a single pass in the entire 4th quarter.
Colin Kaepernick’s day ends with 4 pass yards and 5 sacks. First QB in NFL history with 5 sacks and fewer than 5 yards in a game.
