Jimmy Garoppolo bounced back from a brutal preseason opener to throw for 188 yards and a touchdown, as the visiting San Francisco 49ers beat the Kansas City Chiefs 27-17 on Saturday night in preseason action.
Garoppolo, who finished 1 of 6 for 0 yards and an interception on Monday in Denver, went 14 of 20 on Saturday in his second game back from a torn ACL. He played the whole first half, throwing a 20-yard TD to Matt Breida and leading two field-goal drives in five series.
Patrick Mahomes was even better for the Chiefs in just two possessions, going 8 of 10 for 126 yards and a 62-yard touchdown to Damien Williams. He took the Chiefs 68 yards for a field goal on his second drive.
Nick Mullens played the whole second half at quarterback for the 49ers, going 8 of 11 for 84 yards, as C.J. Beathard did not play.
