Dante Pettis Jersey White

49ers already near touchdown underdogs to Chiefs The San Francisco 49ers travel to face the Kansas City Chiefs this coming weekend Dante Pettis Jersey White , and it’s safe to say this will be a tough one. Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes has set an NFL record for most touchdown passes through two games to start a season. He had four in Week 1 against the Los Angeles Chargers, and another six in Week 2 against the Pittsburgh Steelers. Both games came on the road, and now the Chiefs get their home opener against the 49ers.It is fitting then that the 49ers are sizable underdogs with line showing some serious movement. The line opened with the 49ers as low as a 4.5 point underdog at sportsbooks monitored by Odds Shark. It now stands at six points, with some some up to seven points.Early money is heavily on the Chiefs, which is not surprising given their performance these first two weeks. If the money keeps pouring in on Kansas City, we could see the line continue climbing. However, if sportsbooks don’t want to go too far north, they can also adjust the vig, lowering the payout for subsequent bets on the spread. Either way, I suspect we see more adjustments in favor of the Chiefs.The 49ers offense should be able to do some things against a shaky at best Chiefs defense. On the other hand, I really don’t know what the 49ers defense is going to do against Patrick Mahomes and company. The pass rush is inconsistent, and while Richard Sherman is off to a solid start with the 49ers, the rest of the secondary has struggled in a big way. Ahkello Witherspoon was benched on Sunday in the fourth quarter, so confidence will be a concern for the time being. Jaquiski Tartt suffered a shoulder injury, and we’re still awaiting a status update. The good news is the 49ers welcome back Reuben Foster George Kittle Jersey , but it’s going to be a tough one on Sunday for this defense. The Alliance of American Football kicked off its inaugural season on Saturday, and it wasn’t half bad. The quality is not NFL level, but there is some intriguing talent that will draw viewers in during the offseason.It should be no surprise that the Steve Spurrier-coached Orlando Apollos were the big winner on Saturday, beating the Atlanta Legends 40-6. The San Antonio Commanders won a slightly uglier matchup, beating the San Diego Fleet 15-6. Keith Reaser (Apollos) was the most notable ex-49ers player to see action, finishing with five tackles and coverage on two incomplete passes.Sunday brings the other half of the league in action, and we get a particularly familiar face. The Birmingham Iron host the Memphis Express at 1 p.m. PT, with the latter team coached by Mike Singletary. This is Singletary’s first coaching job since serving as a defensive assistant for the Los Angeles Rams. Singletary had served as 49ers interim head coach in 2008, and then formal head coach in 2009 and 2010.Singletary’s time as 49ers head coach did not go well, but he has been pushing to get another opportunity. The AAF is promoted as a league of second and third chances for players, but it could help coaches raise their profile with NFL teams. If Singletary can put together a respectable showing in Memphis, maybe he gets another shot at least as an assistant.If you are looking to watch Singletary’s AAF debut, it will air on CBS Sports Network. The other game on Sunday features Arizona hosting Salt Lake at 5 p.m. PT on NFL Network. If you don’t have either cable channel, the AAF app live streams all the games. You can download the app on Android or iPhone.Did anybody watch one or both games on Saturday? Plan on watching today?And just because....
