I watched the San Francisco 49ers lose 25-22 to the San Francisco 49ers New Orleans Saints on Monday Night Football and realized that the Kansas City Chiefs game against the 49ers won't be a cakewalk.

The 49ers had two players looking very good on MNF: QB Alex Smith and RB Frank Gore.

The 49ers drove down the field and scored, along with a two-point conversion, with a 1:19 left in the game. Smith was a very solid quarterback last night and, considering what's happened in Kansas City this season, makes a few Chiefs fans envious of his play.

The 49ers stayed in the game partly due to the workhorse-type play of Gore. He rushed 20 times for 112 yards and caught another seven balls for 56 yards. Clearly, he's going to be the focal point in the game. He's very good and can do it all.

Overall, the 49ers looked like a sharp team that was able to move the ball effectively and put pressure on Drew Brees.

This will be a tough game for the Chiefs but they'll have the Arrowhead advantage.

Thoughts on the 49ers?
