5 takeaways from Chiefs' victory vs. 49ers

5 takeaways from Chiefs' victory vs. 49ers

In the fourth quarter at Arrowhead Stadium against the Kansas City Chiefs, 49ers quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo scrambled left and turned upfield, only to be leveled by corner Steven Nelson.

Foster was hit with a personal foul for hitting Mahomes as the QB was sliding in the first half, Kelce beat him in pass defense, and the young linebacker left early in the fourth quarter when he was shaken up on a tackle. The Chiefs answered with sacks by Allen Bailey and Justin Houston on consecutive plays, then flushed Garoppolo from the pocket on third-and-goal from the 20-yard line.

Garoppolo's left knee buckled just before the Chiefs' cornerback delivered a shoulder-to-shoulder blow, and that was the reason he went down so hard.

"I got a lot of confidence in him", 49ers coach Kyle Shanahan said of Beathard.

Andy Reid's scheme has masterfully accentuated Mahomes' strengths, with the Chiefs totaling a franchise-record 118 points in the first three games - a marked improvement over last year's No. 6 scoring offense that exploded out of the gate with 93 points during a 3-0 start.

"Just like we always do, you show up to work tomorrow", Shanahan said. He scrambled to his left, then ran backward doing a 180 back to the right almost falling down in the process.

"We've got a bunch of weapons, and Pat is just a competitor", Hunt told ESPN. Disappointing I know, but still a solid National Football League record-breaking pace. "We all feel for Jimmy".

Mahomes' final TD throw of the first half went to new Chiefs WR Sammy Watkins on a red-zone slant route for 12 yards to give the Chiefs a 35-10 halftime advantage.

Garoppolo in three games this season completed 59.6 percent of his passes for 718 yards with five touchdowns and three interceptions, good for a 90 rating.

My wife asked me during the first half of the 49ers game, "Why does he make it look so easy because it's not supposed to be that easy right?"

Still, the 49ers leaned on running backs Alfred Morris and Matt Breida and the strong arm of their quarterback to mount a comeback.
