LANDOVER, Md. (AP) - Colin Kaepernick completed 15 of 24 passes for 235 yards with three touchdowns and no interceptions Monday night as the San Francisco 49ers broke a two-game losing streak with a 27-6 win over the Washington Redskins.
Kaepernick outperformed Robert Griffin III in the first matchup of two of the game's young, agile quarterbacks, both of whom have struggled this season after breakout years in 2012.
Kaepernick threw two touchdowns to Anquan Boldin and one to Vernon Davis. Boldin finished with 94 yards on five catches.
The 49ers improved to 7-4, tied for second with the Arizona Cardinals in the NFC West.
The Copperas Cove and Baylor product was 17 for 27 for 127 yards with one interception. He was sacked four times.
