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.

Mock drafts are a dime a dozen this time of year, and most of them wind up projecting something unexciting that has already been projected several times before. But every once in a while, a mock draft comes along that is interesting enough to single out and discuss on its own, like this one from Ryan Fowler of The Draft Network. Fowler put together a complete seven-round mock for the 49ers using The Draft Network's endlessly entertaining Mock Draft Machine and came up with an intriguing list of players that includes two of college football's biggest offensive stars over the past two seasons.

With a speed rating of 97, 49ers running back Raheem Mostert is already one of the fastest players available in the latest installment of the Madden NFL video game series, Madden NFL 21. But apparently, he thinks he should be rated even higher. And, truth be told, Mostert has a point. Mostert was clocked by NFL Next Gen Stats as having the two fastest runs of the 2020 season -- an 80-yard touchdown against the Jets in Week 2 during which he was clocked at 23.09 MPH and a 76-yard catch against the Cardinals in Week 1 that saw him reach 22.73 MPH. Mostert posted highlights of the two runs to his Instagram account Saturday, along with a request to have his Madden NFL 21 score
