Gameday: San Francisco 49ers at Kansas City Chiefs

Aug 16, 2013 at 8:44 AM--




Tonight, the San Francisco 49ers will travel to Arrowhead Stadium in Kansas City, Missouri to face off against the Chiefs in their second preseason game.

The biggest storyline of this matchup will be with Alex Smith, the former 49ers quarterback now starting for the Chiefs. It will be the first time he will have to face off against this former defense in an actual game. Andy Reid took over as the Chiefs' head coach during the offseason and traded for Smith back in April. Last week, Smith was 7 of 8 for 68 yards and the Chiefs scored a touchdown in his only drive of the night. His only incompletion was after throwing the ball away during pressure by the Saints. The Chiefs would go on to lose 17-13 to the New Orleans Saints.

Chiefs running back Jamaal Charles, who suffered a foot strain on Monday, will not participate in the game.


Last week, the 49ers lost to the Denver Broncos by the score of 10-6. However, Colin Kaepernick was equally as impressive at quarterback completing all 4 of his passes for 38 yards in a drive that resulted in a field goal. The starters, including wide receiver Anquan Boldin, looked impressive as well. Unfortunately, wide receiver A.J. Jenkins did not, fumbling on his only reception of the night. The spot opposite Boldin is one of the more interesting battles of training camp for the 49ers.

Another interesting battle should be between Colt McCoy and Scott Tolzien for the 49ers' No. 2 quarterback spot. Rookie B.J. Daniels looks to throw his name into the competition as well.

The game kicks off at 5:00 PM PT and, as usual, you can visit 49erswebzone.com for the latest news and updates during and after the game.

The game will be televised locally in the Bay Area on CBS-5.

Today, the San Francisco 49ers officially announced the retirement of veteran center Weston Richburg.

Patrick Daugherty of NBC Sports released his ranking of NFL head coaches heading into the 2021 season. Bill Belichick of the New England Patriots came in at No. 1, of course. He is followed by Andy Reid of the Kansas City Chiefs. Where does Kyle Shanahan fall within the ranking? The San Francisco 49ers head coach comes in at No. 10, and is the third NFC West coach listed. Sean McVay of the Los Angeles Rams sits at No. 5, and Pete Carroll of the Seattle Seahawks is at No. 8.
