He didn't have a choice. Alex Smith got a concussion. It took some time before Alex could get healthy, Kaepernick started in the mean time. This was the first time Kaepernick started when Alex was healthy.
As far as the play-off race goes, the Seahawks are their only competition. It's a close race, but it's the Seahawks.
