Two quarterbacks heading in opposite directions will clash in an NFL preseason Week 3 matchup between the mercurial 49ers and (likely) Super Bowl-contending Chiefs.
The 49ers might be in big trouble in 2019 — there’s no other way to look at the situation. Head coach Kyle Shanahan and GM John Lynch are in a no-win scenario with QB Jimmy Garappolo. He’s one of the highest-paid players in the league, and yet his current he may not be the player they traded for nearly two years ago. The problem is the already-hampering Niners can ill afford for Garappolo to miss time. Does he play himself out of his funk, or sit to preserve his knee, as he’s still on the mend from a torn ACL?
Chiefs head coach Andy Reid will not have that issue with Patrick Mahomes, who has the skills and mental makeup to become one of the all-time greats. Equipped with arguably the most explosive receiver group in the league, he’ll approach and possibly even break passing records. Running back, however, still has question marks. It appears Damien Williams will be the starter, but whether or not he’s a frontline starter is still to be determined.
Kansas City Chiefs vs. San Francisco 49ers
- When: Saturday, Aug. 24 at 8pm ET

How to watch the Chiefs vs. 49ers online
The Chiefs vs. 49ers game continues the NFL Network’s run of nationally televising the first week of the preseason, but even if you’ve cut the cable cord or you want to watch it on your mobile device, there are plenty of ways to accomplish that. But first, you’ll need to get acquainted with NFL Network.
What is NFL Network?
If you want to be immersed in pro football, NFL Network is the place to go. There’s plenty to love about NFL Network, including the ability to watch exclusive shows like Good Morning Football, NFL Total Access, A Football Life, Inside the NFL, and most importantly, Sunday’s NFL GameDay once the regular season begins. There’s also daily programming devoted to power rankings and fantasy football that football lovers will geek out over. NFL Network shows most Thursday night games during the regular season, and it’ll exclusively show some of the international games in 2019. Take note, though: NFL Network can no longer be seen via DirecTV Now.
The bottom line: If you want to get closer to the action and catch (almost) every Thursday Night Football game, you need NFL Network.
