Jim Harbaugh called his performance “Houdini-like.”
Kaepernick is not going to perform any magic shows any time soon, but San Francisco’s signal-caller was able to get out of precarious situations several times in a 33-14 victory.
Harbaugh noted that Kaepernick contributed to 14 of the team’s 22 first downs in the road win. Kaepernick produced 11 first-down completions and added three first-down runs on the ground.
“Just haven’t seen anybody ever do that.”
A fourth-quarter pocket escape from Kaepernick on a 10-plus minute drive brought out Harbaugh’s Harry Houdini comparison.
“I don’t think Harry Houdini was in tighter jams than what Colin was (Sunday) in some of those situations,” Harbaugh said.
