Game Day: San Francisco 49ers at Denver Broncos

Aug 29, 2015 at 12:00 AM--


Tonight, the Denver Broncos (2-0) will host the San Francisco 49ers (1-1) at Sports Authority Field at Mile High in Denver, Colorado.

The 49ers are coming off of a 23-6 home victory against the Dallas Cowboys. The Broncos are coming off of a 14-10 road victory against the Houston Texans.


The 49ers hit the road for their third preseason game. The team has been in Denver for most of the week, taking part in joint practices with the Broncos at their training facility, the Paul D. Bowlen Memorial Broncos Centre. Unlike some NFL teams that attempt to do the same thing, the joint practices have mostly gone without an incident with both teams feeling that they have been beneficial.

You can view the day one practice notes and the day two practice notes from numerous team beat writers, many of whom traveled to Denver for the week.

Last week, the 49ers defense recorded a trio of interceptions from S Craig Dahl, CB Dontae Johnson and NT Mike Purcell. Purcell took his interception 37 yards to the end zone for a touchdown. San Francisco's defense also recorded 4.0 sacks on the day in their home win over the Cowboys.

On special teams, WR Quinton Patton blocked a punt and recovered the ball in the end zone for a touchdown. RB Jarryd Hayne returned three punts for 84 yards (28.0 average).

Of course, OLB Ahmad Brooks stole the headlines this week after returning home to California to face a charge of misdemeanor sexual battery. A number of outside linebackers will attempt to fill his role as the regular season quickly approaches.

Today will be the exhibition debut of running backs Reggie Bush and Kendall Hunter. Bush was a free agent acquisition while Hunter is returning from an ACL injury suffered in 2014.

DB Craig Dahl, TE Vance McDonald, LB Philip Wheeler, CB Tramaine Brock, LB Desmond Bishop will not play against the Broncos.

Creating the ideal 2022 San Francisco 49ers schedule

By Wayne Breezie
May 9

As I searched the world wide web for exciting things to bring to the world, I couldn't help but draw inspiration from the great Matt Barrows of The Athletic. In a recent mailbag article, a fan presented the task of creating the ideal San Francisco 49ers schedule based on what we already know for home/away opponents. Here is my dream schedule for the 2022 49ers season. Week 1 vs. Cardinals - This would be a home game for the 49ers and must-see television. Trey Lance would get a second chance at the team that handed him his first loss. Kyler Murray vs. Lance is pay-per-view quality. Week 2 at Panthers - Now that Lance got his feet wet, he should have no problems commanding his troops against the Carolina Panthers. I

49ers rookie Kalia Davis not molding his game after D.J. Jones

By Rohan Chakravarthi
May 13

The San Francisco 49ers begin their rookie minicamp on Friday afternoon, giving fans and media their first look at the nine rookies the team drafted, as well as the undrafted free agents the team signed or invited to camp. One player that likely will not participate in team drills is sixth-round defensive tackle Kalia Davis, who is recovering from a torn ACL he suffered last fall, which likely played a role in his falling draft stock. Davis has had an intriguing journey, playing linebacker during his freshman season before transitioning to the defensive line, which he attributed to his bigger size. "Well really, I moved from linebacker to D-lineman because my body was changing," Davis said. "I [gained] a little too much weight. The biggest part about

Deebo Samuel is once again following his team, the San Francisco 49ers, on Instagram. That's significant considering the drama that ensued when the dynamic wide receiver stopped following the team, removed his profile picture, and all other 49ers-related content from his profile on the social media platform (h/t @OurSf49ers_). Deebo Samuel is once again following the #49ers on Instagram.
