The Titans can’t blame this one on backup quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick — they were just dominated by a better team.
The 49ers withstood a late rally, but it came well after a 31-17 game was decided.
Frank Gore ran for two touchdowns and Colin Kaepernick had 68 yards rushing, as the 49ers built a big lead early and padded it.
It was their fourth straight win after a 1-2 start, and now they’re headed to London to face the Jaguars, a bye week with frequent flier miles.
Tennessee got quarterback Jake Locker back on the field, after Fitzpatrick made a 3-1 start seem like forever ago in two straight losses.
Locker was out there but clearly bothered by the hip injury that sidelined him, limping noticeably at several points. But he threw a pair of fourth-quarter touchdown passes, giving the Titans reason for some degree of hope.
