SANTA CLARA — This is the live blog for the second quarter of the 49ers’ Week 5 game against the Chiefs. I will update this frequently with information and analysis from the press box.
2:02 The Chiefs use their first timeout on third-and-five from the 49ers’ 24 yard line. Two plays before the timeout, Smith completed a 16-yard pass over the middle to Junior Hemmingway. That’s the second time Hemmingway has been wide open.
2:05 Smith completes a short pass to Anthony Fasano and Antoine Bethea tackles him for no gain.
2:06 Cairo Santos makes the 42-yard field goal and the score is 10-3 Chiefs.
2:08 Ellington returns the kickoff 22 yards to the 49ers’ 18.
2:10 Kaepernick completes a 39 yard pass deep down the right sideline to a diving Brandon Lloyd on third-and-six.
2:12 The Chiefs blitz, Justin Houston beats Jonathan Martin around the edge and forces Kaepernick to throw the ball away on third-and-8 from the Chiefs’ 37.
2:14 Phil Dawson makes a 55-yard field goal and the score is 10-6 Chiefs. The Chiefs were flagged for an illegal formation on the field goal but Jim Harbaugh declined the penalty.
2:17 Knile Davis returns the kickoff 34 yards to the Chiefs’ 32.
2:19 Dwayne Bowe beats Chris Culliver for an 18-yard catch on third-and-9.
2:20 Bowe drops a deep pass on second-and-1 and Kelce drops a short pass on third-and-1. The Chiefs are going for it on fourth-and-1 from the 49ers’ 40.
2:22 False start. Fourth and 6. The Chiefs will punt.
2:23 Ellington makes a fair catch at the 49ers’ 7 yard line. Should have let that punt bounce.
2:27 Kaepernick scrambles for 7 yards on third-and-6. The Chiefs are challenging. They think Kaepernick ran out of bounds a yard short of the first-down marker.
2:30 The refs confirm the ruling on the field. First and 10 at the 49ers’ 18.
2:35 Second-and-8 at the Chiefs’ 27 after the two-minute warning. Kaepernick has completed three passes in a row for 47 yards.
2:39 The Chiefs are flagged for roughing the passer on first-and-10 from the 49ers’ 18. First and goal at the 9.
2:40 Kaepernick throws a touchdown pass to a wide open Stevie Johnson, who was “covered” by Marcus Cooper. 13-10 Niners. That was a 93-yard drive. 31 seconds left in the half.
2:43 Knile Davis returns the kickoff to the Chiefs’ 23. 22 seconds left.
2:44 Smith hands off to Charles who fumbles and recovers at the Chiefs’ 21. Charles is flagged for using inappropriate language after the play.
2:46 Smith hands off to Charles again and he gains four yards this time. End of the first half.
