In each of the Chiefs’ six games this season, they have given up at least 20 points. Additionally, Mahomes has had trouble in the fourth quarter, with a passer rating of 54.9.
After being sidelined for the last two games with an injury, Nick Bosa might play in this game. Additionally, the 49ers made a significant move on Thursday when they acquired running back Christian McCaffrey in a trade. They have another tool at their disposal that they can use to their advantage.
