Cassel Throws 3 TD’s In Chiefs’ Win Over 49ers

KANSAS CITY (AP) – Matt Cassel’s three touchdown passes included a trick play that caught San Francisco completely flat-footed and the surprising Kansas City Chiefs remained unbeaten with a 31-10 whipping Sunday of the hapless, winless 49ers.

After starting 0-4 a year ago and winning only 10 games the previous three seasons combined, the Chiefs are 3-0 for the first time since 2003.

The offense of the 49ers (0-3), which rolled up 417 yards Monday night against New Orleans managed only a field goal until the final play from scrimmage.

Cassel was 16 for 27 for 250 yards. He connected with Dexter McCluster on a 31-yard run-and-catch and fired a perfect 45-yard strike to a wide-open Dwayne Bowe off a fake end-around.

    Singletary insisting on keeping the final seconds stopped so he can add some useless pts at the end of game was stupid. Putting starting players at unnecessay risk of injury was just plain arragont.


    I’m a huge niner’sssssss fan but this SAN FRANCISCO LION’S I MEAN 49ERS SUCKSSSS Alex ,singletary had to go

  • Ken

    Thanks Jimmy Raye for ruining my hopes. Silly me. I can’t believe I gave into all the hype that the 9ers would take the West. I feel so stupid now.


    Hey Dennis…sit down with the rest of us and have a good laugh at Coaches Corner!! Coaches..yeah right…

    This is the problem with people. You can’t expect the 49ers to turn it around it just two years. Get rid of the coach? Really? He just got there. He needs time. I don’t like what I’m seeing, but the season isn’t over. it’s only game 3. You so called fans, are hitting the panic button already. Go cheer for the baseball giants if you don’t like what you see. The niners will be ok!
