George Kittle among 49ers who will not play against Chiefs

Kansas City Chiefs running back Spencer Ware tries to get past San Francisco 49ers linebacker Reuben Foster and safety Eric Reid during the first half of an NFL preseason football game in Kansas City Mo. Friday Aug. 11 2017 Rookie Reuben Foster laments the one that got away in his first NFL action

Later, the Kansas City special teams set Mahomes up perfectly for his first unofficial touchdown as a pro. Mahomes will play the third quarter and Joel Stave the fourth.

Former Iowa quarterback C.J. Beathard introduced himself to the National Football League on Friday night, with two touchdown passes in his first professional preseason game. After all, Murray was the first quarterback that the Chiefs had drafted since 2011 when they nabbed Ricky Stanzi in the fifth round of that year's draft.

There are 89 other players suiting up for the Kansas City Chiefs on Friday night, but tell that to Chiefs Twitter, where it's clear that one player in particular is going to earn the lion's share of attention.

The 49ers earned their first victory of the Kyle Shanahan and John Lynch era with a 27-17 showing against the Chiefs in their preseason opener.

Quarterback Tyler Bray is now listed as the backup to starter Alex Smith, but a lot of the attention falls on the third name on the chart - rookie Patrick Mahomes. Rookie C.J. Beathard hung tough in the pocket and engineered the fourth-quarter rally.

Robinson was in coverage against Tyreek Hill on Alex Smith's 33-yard pass completion on the first play. Matt Barkley (10 of 17, 168 yards) fared OK as the No. 2 QB, and he showed touch on a play-action pass to Garrett Celek for 24 yards.

Arsenal rally late to defeat Leicester on opening night
This season, however, each of the Premier League's top seven will play in Europe, which Mourinho believes is a leveller. I feel the same pressure at Barcelona when I arrived. "Whether he does or not, I expect Arsenal to win, but only just".

The third-string units for both squads took over in the third quarter.

Oh, right, it got even worse for a team coming off a 2-14 season: defensive tackle DeForest Buckner left the game on the first drive and was immediately declared out.

NFL Game Pass also has global packages for anyone not in the US. "I'd get to stand on the sidelines", said Bell.

Beathard completed 7 of 11 passes for 101 yards with two touchdowns.

Two snaps later, Chiefs rookie Patrick Mahomes threw a touchdown pass for a 17-9 lead.

Mahomes is going to be compared to these three guys for his entire career, which is why the "stat watching" is already becoming a thing in Kansas City. Linebacker Brock Coyle (rib) and tight end George Kittle (hamstring) did not play, and safety Jimmie Ward (hamstring) is on the physically unable to perform list.
