Daring call sparks dramatic 49ers
SANTA CLARA, Calif. — The 49ers converted a fake punt from deep in their territory and beat the Chiefs, quieting the drama around coach Jim Harbaugh's future for at least a week.
"The football team has done good. And the better you do and the more you do, the more people try to trip you up," Harbaugh said of speculation on his relationship with the players and organization.
With the 49ers on their 29, Craig Dahl took a direct snap for a 3-yard run up the middle on fourth and 1 as San Francisco turned back Chiefs quarterback and former 49er Alex Smith.
