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.

Silver: 49ers could lose run and passing game coordinators with offseason coaching hires

By David Bonilla
Jan 5, 2021

In addition to potentially losing defensive coordinator Robert Saleh, San Francisco 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan could find himself losing two trusted assistants on the offensive side too. Passing-game coordinator Mike LaFleur and run-game coordinator Mike McDaniel are expected to draw interest from potential new head coaches around the league. This year, thanks to new league rules, Shanahan cannot block interviews with LaFleur and McDaniel, so long as they are up for promotions to coordinator jobs. Reports state Saleh may be interested in making LaFleur his offensive coordinator, should he land a head-coaching job. That much was

C.J. Beathard, Kendrick Bourne among PFF's highest-graded 49ers players vs. Seahawks

Quarterback C.J. Beathard had a good game on Sunday, according to Pro Football Focus. His 81.3 overall grade from the analytics site was the best among San Francisco 49ers players. Beathard finished the game completing 25-of-37 passes for 273 yards with a touchdown and a passer rating of 98.1. On top of the insurmountable number of injuries the team endured this past season, the 49ers spent the last month in Arizona after Santa Clara County COVID-19 restrictions banned contact sports. "Hopefully, we don't ever have to do this again, first off," Beathard said after the game, ready to finally get home. "But, there were some good times, some good memories here with the guys when you're all kind of bunked up in the same hotel you get to see them in passing a little

The 2020 NFL season is in the books for the San Francisco 49ers, and members of The Faithful can now turn their attention toward the NFL Draft. One position that will have no shortage of news coverage this offseason is quarterback, as was the case last offseason. Will Jimmy Garoppolo return to the team in 2021, or will Kyle Shanahan and company find a better option? Two mock drafts from Monday morning have the 49ers adding a rookie quarterback to the roster. The first is from Pro Football Focus, which has San Francisco moving up to the No. 4 overall pick to select Justin Fields of Ohio State.
