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 Notebook: Could 49ers mark end of the road for Aaron Rodgers, Tom Brady? Arik Armstead the baller; Deebo's big run; Outcome never in doubt?

There's a lot to unpack from Saturday night's memorable 13-10 win for the San Francisco 49ers over the Green Bay Packers, but some of the biggest news to surface since that game came to an end involves the legendary quarterback the 49ers faced in their latest playoff victory—and the one they could face next week. Keep in mind there are still a lot of unknowns here, including (as of Sunday morning) whether or not the 49ers will even get this opportunity when they battle in the NFC Championship next Sunday (6:40 p.m. ET/3:40 p.m. PT, FOX). But based on what Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers said Saturday night to go with what's been reported about Buccaneers quarterback Tom Brady over the past 24 hours, it's not incorrect to say the 49ers could conceivably be the team to



'They don't make them any tougher than Jimmy': Baldy impressed by Garoppolo's gutsy 49ers-Rams performance

Early last week, no one was even sure if Jimmy Garoppolo would be suited up for Sunday's regular-season finale. The Los Angeles Rams had to figure the safe bet was a matchup against San Francisco 49ers rookie quarterback Trey Lance. And, of course, head coach Kyle Shanahan was being coy about which quarterback he planned to start. Garoppolo played through a torn ligament and chipped bone in his right thumb. After Sunday's thrilling playoff-clinching 27-24 overtime win, the quarterback admitted that he had a good feeling early in the week that he would be able to play. "Yeah, I think it was Tuesday we did the throwing session, tested it out, turned it into a game-like scenario," Garoppolo explained. "I kept being aware of it the whole week, but I had a pretty good
