The San Francisco 49ers pulled off a 27-17 victory over the Kansas City Chiefs in Week 1 of the preseason. Niner Noise breaks down all that was good, bad and ugly from the game.
NFL preseason games don’t exactly mean a lot, but the San Francisco 49ers are 1-0 under head coach Kyle Shanahan in exhibition bouts after dropping the Kansas City Chiefs 27-17 on August 11.
It was a sloppy game for the Niners, whose multiple penalties must have reminded fans of years prior when these issues plagued San Francisco on a regular basis.
There were other issues too, and those are expected.
Yet there were a number of positives. The 49ers run defense, so terrible last season, showed some promise. San Francisco’s two first-round draft picks, Solomon Thomas and Reuben Foster, both saw action and made impacts.
And the Niners even got some production out of players many are looking at as sleepers for the 53-man roster.
In this slideshow, we’ll take a look at all that went down from San Francisco’s vantage point. There was some good, some bad and a good deal of ugly from this first week of preseason action.
