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.

The San Francisco 49ers have had success signing their big-name players to contract extensions in recent years, securing deals with George Kittle, Fred Warner, Deebo Samuel, and Nick Bosa. However, that last one didn't get finalized until dangerously close to the start of the regular season. This year, the team has been trying to get a deal done with wide receiver Brandon Aiyuk.

How George Kittle responded to a question about 49ers' Super Bowl strategy

San Francisco 49ers tight end George Kittle joined the "Dan Patrick Show" and was asked a question he had not encountered before: What would he change about the strategy the 49ers deployed in their Super Bowl loss against the Kansas City Chiefs? Kittle didn't immediately have an answer. However, after reflecting on the game, he prioritized better ball protection, feeling that might have made the difference.

The San Francisco 49ers didn't have to sit with the sting of February's heartbreaking Super Bowl defeat for too long. That's one of the benefits of playing deep into the postseason. Before you know it, you are back at work, preparing for the next season. Two months after the loss, the 49ers reported for the start of the offseason program, which concluded last week with a two-day minicamp. Most of the players and coaches have moved past that game against the Kansas City Chiefs, but the memory of it serves as motivation for the 2024 season. That doesn't mean returning after the loss was easy. However, it's not the first time the 49ers have faced
