The San Francisco 49ers lost to the Kansas City Chiefs 38-27 in a game that offered a swing all along the rollercoaster of emotions — and the loss was far from the bad news of the day. Quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo suffered a knee injury in the fourth quarter and was taken to the back on a trainer cart. He was working for extra yards on 3rd and goal Authentic Richard Sherman Jersey , and lowered his shoulder on this hit. Initially what seemed to be a shoulder injury turned out to be a knee injury.The 49ers mounted a comeback against the Chiefs, and looked like they might be able to cut the lead to one score. Instead, the injury happened, and 49ers fans have their fingers crossed heading into Week 4.This game was a roller coaster of emotions for 49ers fans. Both sides of the ball were a mess in the first half. The offense couldn’t get anything going thanks to drops and penalties. The defense had numerous opportunities to short-circuit some of the Chiefs drives, only to blow it repeatedly on third down. There were two separate 3rd and 15+ plays where the 49ers defense managed to blow it. The Chiefs scored touchdowns on their first five drives and led 35-10 at the half.The 49ers did not give up in this one, and while it came up short, it was a valiant effort. They put up back-to-back touchdowns in the third quarter, and had the ball driving to cut the lead to a touchdown. Instead, the drive ended with Jimmy Garoppolo getting hurt, and then Kyle Juszczyk called for a bogus offensive pass interference call on what should have been a touchdown pass from C.J. Beathard.Up next: @ Los Angeles ChargersThe 49ers face a tough Chargers squad, but the big question for now remains Jimmy Garoppolo’s left knee. It’s pins and needles for the next few days. There was a play midway through the Kansas City Chiefs' 38-27 victory over the San Francisco 49ers in which Patrick Mahomes eluded the pass rush, rolled out to his right and flipped a short, simple pass to running back Kareem Hunt in the flat.He had at least two other wide receivers wide open Womens Mike McGlinchey Jersey , too.Such is the nature of the Kansas City offense through the first three weeks of the season, and the challenge it has presented to a trio of defenses.Even if they manage to contain one target, or even two or three, Mahomes always seems to have somebody else wide open downfield."It's hard for teams to play every single one of them," Mahomes said Sunday night. "I know if I get through my reads there will be someone open. With the offensive line blocking so well, I can sit in the pocket and get through my whole entire read and find the open guy."That was once again evident against the 49ers, when Mahomes targeted 11 different receivers and connected with nine.Travis Kelce led the way with eight catches for 114 yards, his second straight 100-yard performance, and Sammy Watkins hauled in five catches for 55 yards and a touchdown.But the breadth of the Chiefs' options was really apparent in the fact that Mahomes' other two touchdown passes went to No. 3 wide receiver Chris Conley and backup tight end Demetrius Harris.Even little-used wide receiver Marcus Kemp managed a reception."I've never played with an offense that good before," said Tyreek Hill, who had two catches for 51 yards. "Like I was telling Sammy, man, I'm excited to have all these weapons on the team. It's amazing Authentic K'Waun Williams Jersey , man, because a defense has got to worry about so many options."It's not just the quantity, though. The Chiefs have quality players at every position, and in most cases they have multiple guys capable of stepping onto the field without missing a beat."Guys everywhere," Mahomes said. "Knowing that I have those weapons, whenever someone has to get a break 鈥?we say if you're tired, get a break, because I know I can trust the next guy coming in."That's hardly a luxury most teams experience.Then there's the variety of talent.Kelce is one of the league's best tight ends, a capable blocker whose soft hands allowed him to spear a high throw on Sunday that few others could catch. And when he gets into the open field, just ask 49ers linebacker Reuben Foster how difficult it is to bring him down.On the outside are Watkins and Hill, giving the Chiefs not only two of the fastest playmakers in the league, but also two of the most sure-handed.Yes, Hill only had two catches against San Francisco Authentic Jimmy Garoppolo Jersey , but one was a leaping grab deep downfield between two defenders in tight coverage, while Watkins made his mark by catching slant routes in traffic and making guys miss.Indeed, his touchdown grab Sunday looked as if someone was running a gauntlet.When defenses finally try nickel and dime packages to cover the downfield threats, the Chiefs merely have the reigning NFL rushing champion in Hunt ready to handle the ball.He finally got into the end zone Sunday for his first two touchdowns this season."Coach (Andy) Reid has done an unbelievable job of creating these plays," Kelce said. "Right now we're just dialing them up and going out there and executing what's called. It's as simple as that. Not every single play is going to have one certain guy and that's the fun of it."It hasn't been much fun for opposing defenses."We have to do a little better in the second half," offensive lineman Mitch Schwartz said Sunday, "but we had nine possessions. Five touchdowns and a field goal. That's pretty good."Notes: Reid said Monday that he's comfortable with the Chiefs' pass rush heading into Monday night against Denver, even though outside linebacker Dee Ford hurt his groin against the 49ers. "I think we'll be fine there if (Ford is unavailable)," Reid said. "I know he was sore yesterday. For him to come out of a game is never a good thing. We'll see how he does here, but I'm glad we've had an opportunity to play those guys and give them a little experience here."
