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.

49ers vs. Saints: Studs and Duds from San Francisco's loss to New Orleans

After jumping out to a 10-point lead and knocking QB Drew Brees out of the game, the 49ers went "No Gas, All Brakes" in their 27-13 loss to the Saints. The San Francisco 49ers had an opportunity to stun the New Orleans Saints after jumping out to a quick lead, but a combination of turnovers, a lackluster offensive performance, and abysmal special teams play allowed the Saints to cruise to an easy victory over a mostly disinterested Niners team and coaching staff. Head coach Kyle Shanahan reached his Promised Land -- the team's annual bye week --

All football energy flows through the Great Magnet, and he has decided the San Francisco 49ers will endure more than their fair share of pitfalls and anguish this season. The 49ers began Week 9 already a hobbled franchise and were further undercut when wide receiver Kendrick Bourne tested positive for COVID-19 last Wednesday. Shortly after, tackle Trent Williams and wide receivers Deebo Samuel and Brandon Aiyuk also landed on the Reserve/COVID-19 list. Only fools attempt to defy the negative energy that has gripped this rotten year. I'm not privy to head coach Kyle Shanahan's game strategy, but the laundry list of players out last

This is not how most envisioned Sunday's matchup with the New Orleans Saints. It was supposed to be similar to last year and be a matchup of two heavyweights. Instead, the 49ers are hanging on for their lives with far too many key players missing. Out for this matchup are Richard Sherman, Deebo Samuel, George Kittle, Jimmy Garoppolo, Raheem Mostert, Tevin Coleman, Jeff Wilson Jr, K'Waun Williams, and Jaquiski Tartt. This is on top of all the players missing for awhile now like Dee Ford, Nick Bosa, Ronald Blair, Ben Garland, Weston Richburg, and Solomon
