You have to go all the way back to 1982 to find the last time a road team won a game between these two franchises. That was back when Joe Montana was slinging the ball for the San Francisco 49ers.
San Francisco 49ers Preview
Jimmy Garoppolo looked better in his second start this season, completing 69.2% of his passes and not turning the ball over. He still needs help on offence, as the San Francisco 49ers are lacking a true number one wide receiver.
Kansas City Chiefs Preview
Two games into the 2018 season and Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes is the leading candidate for league MVP. The sophomore signal caller has 10 passing touchdowns in his first two games this season and no turnovers.
The 49ers will need another strong rushing performance to keep the Chiefs offence off the field. The 49ers ran for 190 yards in their Week 2 win over the Lions. The Chiefs defence has faced the fewest rushing attempts in the NFL but are allowing 4.5 yards per attempt (tenth most in the NFL).
