Gore, Dawson spoil Smith’s return to San Francisco

Santa Clara, CA (SportsNetwork.com) – Phil Dawson made five field goals and
the 49ers spoiled Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Alex Smith’s return to San
Francisco with a 22-17 victory.

Trailing by five, Smith and the Chiefs started from their own 20 with 2:12
left and no timeouts. Perrish Cox prevented Smith from leading Kansas City
down the field for a game-winning score, as he picked off the 2005 No. 1
overall pick.

Smith was San Francisco’s starting quarterback until he suffered a concussion
in a game against St. Louis in Week 10 of the 2012 season. Colin Kaepernick
won the starting job from there, and Smith was traded to the Chiefs in 2013.
