Aug 29, 2015 at 9:49 PM--


The Denver Broncos beat the San Francisco 49ers 19-12 in their exhibition game on Saturday night at Sports Authority Field at Mile High in Denver.

Making what should be his last start of the preseason, LB NaVorro Bowman looked primed and ready for the regular season. He had seven tackles, two assists and two sacks in the game.

It was a field goal battle for much of the game until the Broncos took the lead in the fourth quarter with a touchdown and two point conversion.

The 49ers offense struggled with only 92 net passing yards. The running game managed 145 net rushing yards, but 53 of those were from QB Colin Kaepernick. RB Reggie Bush made his 49ers debut and gained 21 yards in his only run of the night.

Here are the recaps from numerous 49ers beat writers. More will be added to the list as they come in.

"I would have given one to everybody, if we did, but we need to start to expect some more games like that. We've got to be sure that -- we can be better or worse next week, and we've got to make sure we're better." San Francisco improves to 4-5 and prevents falling back into last place in the NFC West.

Jay Gruden reveals how much Kyle Shanahan and the 49ers were willing to give up for Kirk Cousins

By David Bonilla

Upon being hired as the head coach of the San Francisco 49ers, Kyle Shanahan planned to be patient and build a roster in preparation for potentially inserting quarterback Kirk Cousins. Cousins was with Washington at the time, but it was a near-certainty that the relationship would eventually end. The 49ers coached rolled with placeholders until that time presented itself. The 49ers have admitted that they looked into potentially trading for Cousins. However, with the situation in Washington speeding toward an eventual divorce, it seemed to make more sense to wait and see what happened. There was also the obstacle of the strained relationship between the Shanahans and Washington. Cousins never ended up in Santa Clara with Shanahan. The free-agent quarterback
