Frank Gore carried three times for 33 yards on the drive, and Kaepernick hit Davis on a 32-yard pass.

The 49ers' defense quickly got the ball back for Kaepernick. Campbell tried to hit wide receiver Devin Hester along the left sideline, but 49ers cornerback Tarell Brown cut in front for an easy interception and it returned 5 yards to the Chicago 44.

The 49ers drove to the Bears' 12-yard line but backtracked. After Kaepernick was sacked by Corey Wootton and Israel Idonije on third down, San Francisco settled for a 37-yard Akers field goal. The boot put the 49ers ahead 20-0 with 6:32 left in the half.
