The Kansas City Chiefs will be furious when they see this play again

Sunday wasn't the greatest day for the Kansas City Chiefs who travelled to Santa Clara to take on the San Francisco 49ers in what proved to be a bad game for visitors.

The Chiefs fell to a 22-17 defeat and have now sunk to a 2-3 record on the season and perhaps even worse, ended a two game winning streak.

Starting QB's: The good but the not great

After victories over the Miami Dolphins and the New England Patriots the Chiefs were on a roll, but the 49ers ended all that.

Despite taking the lead at Levi's Stadium, the much debated 49ers came from behind to get the win that moves them to a 3-2 record and may now ease the pressure on head coach Jim Harbaugh.

It was arguably a bad day all round for the Chiefs, but there is one play in particular that really highlights their performance.

It comes from Chiefs Linebacker Dee Ford who gave the NFL arguably one of the worst defensive plays ever.

49ers Runningback Frank Gore does pose quite a dangerous and fearful threat for NFL defenders, but Ford showed his fear on the field in San Francisco.

With the 49ers on 1st & 10 inside the third quarter, there was a running play which I'm sure will be discussed in the Chiefs team meeting s this week.

After Gore takes the hand-off from Quarterback Colin Kaepernick, he runs around his offensive line and it seems like Ford (No. 55) runs away from him.

Either he doesn't know his assignment on the play or his genuinely afraid of Gore, either way I can't imagine the Chiefs coaching staff will be pleased watching it back.

Chiefs take a tumble

The loss to the 49ers was the Chiefs third of the season and second to a team who made the play-offs last year.

Their emphatic 41-14 victory over the Patriots last Monday was their only win over a play-off team from last year but it could be argued they are having a sporadic season.

A commanding victory in Miami over the Dolphins was their first win after losing to the Denver Broncos and perhaps more surprisingly, the Tennessee Titans at Arrowhead Stadium in week one.

Up next for the Chiefs is a trip to the San Diego Chargers whose offense was rolling on Sunday as they marched to a blow-out victory over the New York Jets.

The Chiefs will need to be at their best on Sunday to leave San Diego with the win to get their season back on track.
