Tonight officially marks the start of the Kyle Shanahan/John Lynch era in Santa Clara, although the two have been hard at work trying to resurrect the team from an abysmal 2-14 season a year ago.
VS. First Quarter The Niners opened up on defense and were tested right away by Chiefs wideout Tyreek Hill, who burst past cornerback Rashard Robinson for a big gain.
Kansas City continued to pick on Robinson, who nearly gave up a touchdown — one called back on an offensive pass interference against the Chiefs.
Linebacker Aaron Lynch managed to knock down a pass on third down, forcing a Kansas City punt to wide receiver Jeremy Kerley, and the Niners went back on offense looking for a first down for the first time of the game.
