Chiefs Fall Short In 22-17 Setback To 49’ers

Kansas City Chiefs v San Francisco 49ers

In the end, former 49ers QB and now Chiefs signal caller Alex Smith had a chance twice to rally his troops for what would have been a huge win in San Francisco, but it just fell short.

Smith threw for 175 yards and two touchdowns, but Perrish Cox intercepted his overthrown pass to end any chance Kansas City had to rally in the Chiefs 22-17 setback.

“It’s tough, you’re competitive, you want to win the game. Some of those guys I played a long time with,” said Smith after the loss.

Smith and Kansas City took over with 2:12 left and another chance to rally. But Smith sailed a pass to tight end Anthony Fasano, and Cox swooped in for an easy interception.

“I thought he handled (the environment) like a champ,” Chiefs coach Andy Reid said of Smith.

Colin Kaepernick threw for 201 yards and a touchdown, Frank Gore ran for 107 yards and the 49ers converted a fake punt to key a win to push San Fran to 3-2.

The 49ers (3-2) turned to a trick play on fourth-and-1 from their 29 early in the fourth quarter, giving a direct snap to Craig Dahl for a 3-yard run up the middle.

Kaepernick directed the offense downfield, and Phil Dawson kicked a 27-yard field goal with 8:42 to play for the go-ahead score. Dawson also connected from 55, 52, 35 and 30 yards in the win.
