The San Francisco 49ers endured a heavy loss Sunday after star quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo was badly injured, forcing his exit from a game that ended in a 38-27 loss against the Kansas City Chiefs at Arrowhead Stadium, The San Francisco Chronicle reported.

Garoppolo went down late in the fourth quarter after cutting back into the field instead of stepping out of bounds at the end of a quarterback scramble. Even when the Chiefs managed to get a good retread quarterback, they'd come to the franchise and win a bunch of games without throwing a touchdown pass to a receiver for an entire season.

Per Brandon Norris, Mahomes has now thrown a touchdown pass to nine different players. Garoppolo stayed down on the sidelines on his hands and knees with what initially appeared to be a shoulder injury.

With Garoppolo feared lost for the season, it appears that C.J. Beathard will reassume the starting job he lost about a month after Garoppolo was acquired in a trade past year from the Patriots.

"Hopefully, he can recover and heal as quickly as possible", Beathard said. "I was like, 'Hey, brother, we've got you". But the 49ers were called for offensive pass interference, ultimately giving the ball back to the Chiefs to run the rest of the clock.

This shows just how much things can change from week to week in the NFL. "I feel like it will really help me going forward having had the experience".

My wife asked me during the first half of the 49ers game, "Why does he make it look so easy because it's not supposed to be that easy right?"

"It's part of the National Football League season. If C.J.'s rolling out there, we'll be ready to go". Mahomes then threw a laser to Conley in the back of the end zone while running to his right. "It was when we lost our starting running back, too", Shanahan said. "I knew that from the day we met, when we got drafted together". Mahomes achieved the distinction in the 2nd quarter of the ongoing matchup against the San Francisco 49ers, where outgoing QB Alex Smith started his career.
