San Diego, CA (Sports Network) - B.J. Daniels threw a pair of touchdown passes to lead the San Francisco 49ers in a 41-6 rout over the San Diego Chargers to end the preseason.

Starter Colin Kaepernick went 3-for4 for 64 yards and a score in his only series of the game for the 49ers, who finished the preseason with a mark of 3-1.

San Francisco, which lost in the Super Bowl to Baltimore last season, will begin its season at home against Green Bay in Week 1.

Phil Dawson hit a 47-yard field goal in the second quarter and Colt McCoy and Anthony Dixon got together on a 5-yard score to give the 49ers a 17-3 lead.

Novak's 48-yard field goal late in the first half cut San Diego's deficit to 17-6 at the break.

A 40-yard field goal from Dawson in the third quarter along with a blocked punt that was recovered by Cam Johnson in the end zone gave the 49ers a 27-6 lead.

Daniels had touchdown passes of 45 and 14 yards to Lavelle Hawkins and Chuck Jacobs, respectively, in the fourth quarter.
