Everyone on Earth is excited to see Patrick Mahomes play


Mahomes will play the third quarter and Joel Stave the fourth.

CHIEFS 17, 49ers 17: C.J. Beathard delivered a 47-yard touchdown pass to Kendrick Bourne. When they drafted Mahomes, it marked the first time since 1983 they picked a quarterback in the first round.

Kansas City's own rookie quarterback Patrick Mahomes helped jumpstart the team's offensive in the second half, leading a short six-play, 36-yard drive ending with a Sam Ficken field goal with 10:30 remaining in the third quarter to put the Chiefs up 10-7.

They fell to the San Francisco 49ers 27-17 on Friday night in their preseason opener at Arrowhead Stadium. Throw in several years of pitiful quarterback play from the likes of Tyler Thigpen, Brady Quinn, Tyler Palko, Matt Cassel and more (along with the current arm limitations of Alex Smith) and it makes everyone hungry to see what a top young gunslinger can do. Bray finished 5-of-8 for 63 yards. He had the same issue Friday with speedy Chiefs receiver Tyreek Hill, who caught a 32-yard pass down the sideline against Robinson on the game's first play. On the next series, he surrendered an 83-yard touchdown to Chris Conley, although it was nullified by Conley's pass-interference penalty.

"We've got to clean up the penalties", Shanahan said at halftime.

The defense immediately caved, the offense backfired and the opponent looked superior from the outset.

Smith might as well have been the undercard for understudy Mahomes, who completed seven of nine passes for 49 yards and a touchdown.

-Running back Kapri Bibbs, who is competing for a backup job, did himself no favors as Kevin Pierre-Louis pushed him out of the way to block a Bradley Pinion punt in the third quarter.
