Quarterback Colin Kaepernick lead the San Francisco 49ers to a comfortable 42-10 victory over the win-less Jacksonville Jaguars at Wembley Stadium on Sunday evening.

The 49ers gunslinger did most of the damage with his feet, running for 54 yards and two touchdowns. Running back Frank Gore added two touchdowns of his own on 71 yards of rushing.

As for the Jaguars, quarterback Chad Henne didn’t turn the ball over once, but played it safe with most of his throws. Still, he ended the game with 228 yards and a touchdown but in truth his side were never in it.

Gore punctuated an impressive first 49ers drive with a 19-yard touchdown run – a lead that was promptly doubled on their next possession. Kaepernick scrambled to his left and dived for the pylon to put the 49ers 14-0 ahead in the blink of an eye.

Vernon Davis then showed up. His first catch, a two-yard touchdown, extended the lead to 21 points. He ended the half with three catches for 54 yards – his next two setting up Kaepernick to run the ball home again for a 28-0 lead in the second quarter.

The Jaguars finally got themselves on the board with a field goal as the half-time break neared and they went into the interval down by 28-3.

But the Jaguars maintained some momentum at the start of the third quarter, when quarterback Henne found Mike Brown with a beautiful spiral into the end zone.

The joy was shortlived however, as Gore punched over the line for his second touchdown of the game immediately after.

Dan Skuta picked up the only score of the fourth quarter for the 49ers, pouncing on a Jags fumble to run in some points for the defence.

The result leaves San Fransisco 6-2, whilst the Jaguars slip to a dismal 0-8.
