49ers 31, Titans 17: Colin Kaepernick passed for 199 yards and ran for a score, and Frank Gore rushed for two touchdowns as San Francisco won its fourth in a row with a victory at Tennessee.

Jake Locker started for the first time since injuring his knee and hip Sept. 29 against the Jets and threw for 326 yards and two TDs, but still couldn't prevent the Titans (3-4) from losing their third in a row. Kendall Wright made nine receptions for 98 yards, and Chris Johnson had four catches for 71 yards and a score to go with 39 yards rushing on nine carries.

Gore scored on another 1-yard run on the opening drive of the second half. Locker had touchdown passes of 66 and 26 yards to Johnson and Delanie Walker, respectively, in the fourth quarter, but Kassim Osgood's recovery of a muffed punt by Darius Reynaud in the end zone kept San Francisco comfortably ahead.
