Chiefs preseason kicks off: What to know before you go

Rookie Reuben Foster laments the one that got away in his first NFL action

The good news: Buckner's injury didn't appear serious and - say it all together - it was the first preseason game.

Each Chiefs quarterback is supposed to get a quarter of playing time this evening and Mahomes will get his turn in the third quarter.

But in the fourth quarter, Kemp fumbled to set the 49ers up with their game-winning score - a C.J. Beathard two-yard touchdown pass to Tyler McCloskey - that gave the 49ers a 24-17 lead. Or, could it be the 3rd quarter performance of top draft pick Patrick Mahomes?

Friday night, the Kansas City Chiefs took on the 49ers, a team that has a couple of Kansas connections.

They fell to the San Francisco 49ers 27-17 on Friday night in their preseason opener at Arrowhead Stadium. Bray finished 5-of-8 for 63 yards.

And while win-loss records in the preseason are meaningless, what takes place on the field matters, especially to Reid, who will be watching his young quarterback intently.

Beathard played at Iowa from 2013-16, throwing for 5,562 yards and 40 touchdowns.

Matt Barkley played the remainder of the first half, completing 10 of 17 pass attempts for 168 yards, including a 63-yarder to Aldrick Robinson. On the next series, he surrendered an 83-yard touchdown to Chris Conley, although it was nullified by Conley's pass-interference penalty. "But I think it was good to get out and play against a different team and see what we need to work on".

The anticipation only grew during the seemingly interminable stint of Tyler Bray, who was the Chiefs' No. 2 quarterback entering the game but seemed to move closer to inevitably being passed by Mahomes by throwing a reckless interception and taking a soft sack.

Oh, right, it got even worse for a team coming off a 2-14 season: defensive tackle DeForest Buckner left the game on the first drive and was immediately declared out.

-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. Linebacker Brock Coyle (rib) and tight end George Kittle (hamstring) did not play, and safety Jimmie Ward (hamstring) is on the physically unable to perform list.

Mahomes is going to be compared to these three guys for his entire career, which is why the "stat watching" is already becoming a thing in Kansas City.
