With Chiefs’ 8th straight win, 49ers improve their 2014 NFL Draft selection

Oct 27, 2013 at 1:32 PM--




With the Kansas City Chiefs' 23-17 victory over the Cleveland Browns, they improved their record to 8-0 and remain the only undefeated team in the NFL. By reaching their 8th victory of the season, the San Francisco 49ers gain a better draft selection.

In April, the 49ers traded quarterback Alex Smith to the Chiefs for two draft picks. The first was a second-round selection in the 2013 NFL Draft, which the 49ers used to select defensive tackle Tank Carradine. The second was a conditional selection in the 2014 NFL Draft. If the Chiefs won less than 8 games in 2013, that selection would have been a third-round pick. Because they have now won 8 or more games, that third-round selection becomes a second round pick in 2014.

49ers-Lions: Nick Bosa, Dee Ford assess their performance in return from injury

High on the list of positives for the San Francisco 49ers in their season-opening 41-33 win over the Detroit Lions on Sunday was the performance of pass rushers Nick Bosa and Dee Ford, who were both effective in their first games back from injuries that held them out for most of the 2020 season. Bosa, who tore his ACL in Week 2 of the 2020 season, had four tackles, one sack, three tackles-for-loss, and two quarterback hits in the win over the Lions. Ford, who was limited to one game in 2020 due to back issues, chipped in a sack of his own and put pressure on Lions quarterback Jared Goff on more than one occasion. Both players were limited in the preseason, so it was tough to say for sure what they would do over the course of a full game. But it's safe to say the

San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Jauan Jennings wasn't exactly the first option on the play where he caught his first NFL touchdown in Sunday's 17-11 win over the Philadelphia Eagles, but when the ball came his way, he made his opportunity count. Jennings' catch, which was also the first catch of his NFL career, came on an 11-yard pass from Jimmy Garoppolo to give the 49ers a 7-3 lead over the Eagles right before halftime. The 49ers had struggled on offense throughout a good portion of the first half, but they found momentum after their defense forced a turnover on downs on a goal line stand on the previous series, then were able to put together a 97-yard drive that was capped by Jennings' reception. Jennings revealed to reporters after the game that he was the

Josh Norman is entering his 10th NFL season. He is a Pro Bowl cornerback. He is an All-Pro defender. There's just one thing that is missing from his résumé—a championship.
