NFL Power Rankings Week 3: Chiefs, Bears & Rams on the Rise

  • Patrick Mahomes caught up with Jimmy Garoppolo in classy postgame gesture

Patrick Mahomes tossed three more touchdowns - to three different receivers - and the Kansas City Chiefs held off the San Francisco 49ers, 38-27, to improve to 3-0.

Kyle Shanahan was watching as Jimmy Garoppolo scrambled toward the 49ers sideline and, rather than safely duck out of bounds, stepped back to his right and took a wicked shot from Steven Nelson. He underthrew Tyreek Hill by a yard or two allowing Richard Sherman to catch up and break the pass up.

Mahomes now owns the National Football League record for most TD passes in the first three games of a season with 13, after surpassing Peyton Manning, who tallied 12 for the 2013 Denver Broncos en route to winning the MVP award but losing Super Bowl XLVIII.

Inside linebacker Reuben Foster was among the 49ers who checked on Garoppolo, and Foster said the quarterback's expression was a clue to the expected severity of the injury. The 49ers signed Garoppolo to a five-year, $137.5 million contract this last offseason.

That would mean C.J. Beathard is in line to start at quarterback.

"He told me to lead these guys", Beathard said. But the 49ers were called for offensive pass interference, ultimately giving the ball back to the Chiefs to run the rest of the clock.


"We're really trying to take that next step. I feel for him". Every single time we come off to the sidelines, everybody's excited about what just happened on the field.

While sprinting to his right with defenders in pursuit, Mahomes still threw a dart to Conley in the back right corner of the end zone.

The 49ers have a great opportunity to get their backs involved in the passing game and I believe that is going to be the true "X factor" for the team.

"You can relate it to us losing Jet in the week before we started the season", 49ers fullback Kyle Juszczyk said. "I knew that from the day we met, when we got drafted together". "We had a lot of things schemed around him, same as we do with Jimmy".

The 49ers have only kept two quarterbacks on the 53-man roster since Shanahan became coach.
