The San Francisco 49ers are 1-1 to start the season. The 49ers struggled at home against the Detroit Lions, earning the win, 30-27. San Francisco took their first road loss in week one at Minnesota.
The Kansas City Chiefs are one of the most explosive offenses in the NFL this year. The Chiefs recently put up 42 points in a road shootout last week against the Steelers.
San Francisco 49ers
The San Francisco 49ers came into this season with high expectations. They signed Jimmy Garroppolo to a long term deal at quarterback, but did not do much else to improve the team. It is still early in the year, but through two weeks, the 49ers have not been impressive.
The 49ers beat the Lions in San Francisco for their first win of the season, but game up 27 points in the process. Yes, a win is a win, but the Lions are not going to be a team to beat this year. Jimmy G did look better against a weaker defense in week two.
He was 18 of 26 for 208 yards and two touchdowns. He also did not throw any interceptions. Garroppolo three three picks in the first week road loss at Minnesota.
On defense, the 49ers have been suspect through the first two weeks of the year. The unit has given up 51 points overall this season. Giving up 27 points to a bad Detroit offense can only spell disaster against the Chiefs.
Kansas City Chiefs
Kansas City has been one of the most explosive teams in the NFL to start the season. Second year quarterback Pat Mahomes has be as dynamic a passer as anyone this season. He has thrown 10 touchdowns through two weeks this season, and has no interceptions.
With Mahomes playing as well as he is, the team is feeding off his energy. Last week, the Chiefs visited Pittsburgh and put up 42 points. They totaled 449 yards of total offense. They jump out to a 21-0 lead, then the defense exposed themselves.
Kansas City allowed almost 500 yards of total offense against Pittsburgh. If the Chiefs are going to be successful this year, they must get better on defense.
The Kansas City secondary is going to get tested again in this matchup. They allowed Big Ben to throw for 452 yards and three touchdowns last week.
