Kaepernick's mistakes cost 49ers in Levi's debut

Colin Kaepernick has delivered two drastically different performances in prime time against the Chicago Bears, from that sensational first career start two years ago at Candlestick Park to the complete debacle in his Levi's Stadium debut. Kaepernick threw two of his three interceptions in the fourth quarter and also lost a fumble, watching Jay Cutler rally the Bears from a late double-digit deficit to a stunning 28-20 win to spoil the first regular-season game in the 49ers' new $1.2 billion stadium.
