on the season with a Week 2 victory over the Detroit Lions. They sit one game back of the Los Angeles Rams http://www.49ersauthorizedshops.com/authentic-fred-warner-jersey , XXX with the Seattle Seahawks, and one game up on the Arizona Cardinals.We’re back with Week 3 NFL power rankings, but I wanted to use them for a different type oflook this week. You can see my full power rankings at the bottom of the page, but first, I thought two games in is as good a time as any to assess the rest of the 49ers opponents. There are still plenty of questions to be answered, but two games gives us a good starting point for re-assessing the team’s strength of schedule.Week 3: @ Kansas City Chiefs — Football Outsiders ranks the Chiefs No. 1 in offense and special teams and No. 32 in defense. Patrick Mahomes has been a revelation, and this could be quite the shootout on Sunday.Week 4: @ Los Angeles Chargers — A loss to the Chiefs and a win over the Bills don’t tell us much. The offense is clearly solid, but the defense remains a problem.Week 5/8: Arizona Cardinals — They are not good. Washington came in and thumped them, and then the Rams crushed them in LA. Arizona won’t go winless, but they’re down there with the Bills among the worst teams in the league.Week 6: @ Green Bay Packers — Aaron Rodgers is dealing with knee issues, but he played on Sunday, and almost got the win against a tough Vikings defense. Barring an injury, the Packers are good, as most of us expected.Week 7/16: Los Angeles Rams — They lead the league in point differential Solomon Thomas jersey , but they also have played two bad teams in Oakland and Arizona. They’re going to be very good this season, but where they are among the Super Bowl competitors remains to be seen.Week 9: vs. Oakland Raiders — The Raiders hung close with the Rams early in Week 1, but fell apart late. They then followed that up with a loss in which they blew two separate 12-point leads. The biggest problem for them seems to be the lack of a pass rush — surprise, surprise after unloading Khalil Mack. They are struggling big time in second half adjustments.Week 10: vs. New York Giants — They have lost their first two games by a combined 12 points, but their offense is going to cost them any chance at being remotely competitive for a playoff berth. Eli Manning is trying to play the quarterback position with a fork sticking out, and I don’t see this getting better anytime soon.Week 12: @ Tampa Bay Buccaneers — Ryan Fitzmagic is on fire! He has eight touchdowns through the first two weeks, and the Bucs have a road win over the New Orleans Saints and a home win over the defending champion Philadelphia Eagles. There is no way this holds up, but it’s impressive for the time being. Now we wait and see what happens when Jameis Winston returns from his suspension.Week 13/15: Seattle Seahawks — The Seahawks are sitting at 0-2, and nothing seems to be going well for them. They hung close with the Bears, but that seemed more to do with the Bears nearly blowing the game than Seattle really doing much to win it. Seattle is in trouble.Week 14: vs. Denver Broncos — They’re on the short list of 2-0 teams, but it’s too early to be clear on where they stand. They won at home against Seattle and Oakland, but neither win is looking all that great at this point. Their divisional games against the Chiefs and Chargers will tell us more.Week 16: vs. Chicago Bears — The Bears defense is something fierce. On the other side of things, the Bears offense is shaky at best. Mitchell Trubisky can make some great plays, but he regularly makes bad throws that cost the team. The Bears beat the Seahawks on Monday Night Football 24-17 Authentic Ahkello Witherspoon jersey , but should have won by at least two or three scores.Here are my latest power rankings. Last week, I simply went with a ranking of teams based on point differential, thus some of the funky last week rankings. This week I went with a more subjective look at things.Week 3 NFL power rankingsRankTeamLWRankTeamLW Patrick Mahomes was flushed from the pocket and scrambled all the way to his left, only to realize that just about everybody wearing a Chiefs helmet was on the opposite side of the field.It was a rookie mistake by the second-year pro, one he turned into more early season magic.Mahomes quickly reversed field against the pursuing San Francisco defense, ran all the way to the other side and threw a dart to Chris Conley in the back of the end zone. It was one of three TD passes he threw in a 38-27 victory over the 49ers on Sunday 鈥?and easily the most impressive ."That," Chiefs coach Andy Reid acknowledged with a smile, "was a good one."Mahomes finished with 314 yards passing in his first regular-season start at Arrowhead Stadium, and his touchdown throws to Conley, Demetrius Harris and Sammy Watkins gave him 13 this season without an interception. That total broke the NFL record of 12 for the first three weeks of a season, set by Peyton Manning during the 2013 campaign.More importantly, all those touchdown tosses have the Chiefs 3-0. They are the third team to score at least 38 points in each of the first three games, joining 2007 New England and the 1967 Baltimore Colts."We've got a bunch of weapons," said Chiefs running back Kareem Hunt Youth DeForest Buckner jersey , who added his first two touchdown runs this season, "and Pat is just a competitor. I knew that from the day we met, when we got drafted together. We said one day we were going to take over the Chiefs Kingdom."The Chiefs have clearly found their long-term answer at quarterback.The 49ers? They have a whole lot of questions now.Jimmy Garoppolo left late in the fourth quarter after his left knee buckled during a scramble to the sideline. He was crushed on his throwing shoulder by the Chiefs' Steven Nelson, but the damage was already done, and the 49ers' franchise quarterback was carted off to the locker room."We fear an ACL," 49ers coach Kyle Shanahan said. "We'll find out for sure tomorrow."The 49ers (1-2) trailed 35-7 late in the first half before rallying behind Garoppolo, who threw for 251 yards and two touchdowns. Matt Breida added 90 yards rushing and Alfred Morris scored on the ground as San Francisco clawed to within 35-24 late in the third quarter.It was still 38-24 when the 49ers produced a grinding, 17-play drive that wiped out more than half the fourth quarter. But it ended in a strange sequence that began with Garoppolo taking the shot from Nelson along the sideline, rather than stepping out of bounds and avoiding the hit."I think that was his fault," said Chiefs linebacker Justin Houston, who was trailing the play. "I pray he's not hurt, it's nothing serious, but as a quarterback you should step out of bounds. It's only an inch. An inch wouldn't have made a difference. You got the yardage. You need to be smart."C.J. Beathard came in on third-and-goal and threw what appeared to be a touchdown pass to George Kittle, but it was wiped out by offensive pass interference with 5:17 left in the game.Rather than go for it on fourth down at the Kansas City 25 http://www.49ersauthorizedshops.com/authentic-arik-armstead-jersey , Shanahan elected to kick a field goal 鈥?keeping it a two-possession game. Then the 49ers kicked it deep rather than try an onside kick, and the Chiefs picked up a first down by penalty before Hunt churned for two more and put the game away."That's our time in the game," Reid said. "You take a lot of pride in it. They're going backward and we're going forward and it's all good."MORE ON GAROPPOLOShanahan acknowledged a quarterback move is likely, though Beathard is line to start next week in Los Angeles. The 49ers' only other QB is Nick Mullins, a member of the practice squad. "I just talked to (Garoppolo) in the training room," Beathard said. "I told him I'll be praying for him and I love him and he just told me to lead these guys."FOSTER'S FRUSTRATION49ers LB Reuben Foster had a rough return from a two-game suspension for violating the league's personal conduct and substance abuse policy. Foster was hit with a personal foul for hitting Mahomes as the QB was sliding in the first half, Kelce beat him in pass defense, and the young linebacker left early in the fourth quarter when he was shaken up on a tackle.INJURIES49ers: The defensive backfield was in tatters by the fourth quarter. CB Richard Sherman left with a calf injury, FS Adrian Colbert hurt his ankle and backup CB Tarvarius Moore left with a wrist injury. SS Jaquiski Taylor was already inactive with a shoulder injury.Chiefs: LB Dee Ford left with a groin injury in the fourth quarter. He will have an MRI exam Monday ... Conley briefly left with a right ankle injury, though he returned to make his TD catch. ... SS Eric Berry (heel) remained inactive for the third straight week.UP NEXT49ers: Play the Chargers in Los Angeles next Sunday.Chiefs: Visit the AFC West-rival Broncos next Monday night.
