Sep 3, 2015 at 10:15 PM--


The San Francisco 49ers beat the San Diego Chargers 14-12 in their exhibition finale on Thursday night at Levi's Stadium in Santa Clara.

Neither Colin Kaepernick nor Blaine Gabbert played in this one, with QB Dylan Thompson starting and finishing the game. Thompson finished the night 17 of 22 for 225 yards, two touchdowns and an interception. RB Jarryd Hayne led the team in rushing with 58 yards on 10 carries while WR Bruce Ellington led the team in receiving with 86 yards on three receptions and a touchdown, likely securing his claim to the team's third wide receiver spot.

Ellington's touchdown came on the third play of the game when he hauled in a Thompson pass and headed 70 yards down the field for the score.

Bengals likely to host 49ers if NFL adds 17th game to schedules

NBC Sports' Peter King offered some scheduling insight into what will likely be a 17-game season in 2021. The NFL continues negotiations with broadcast partners on a new television deal, and the networks and league are working on the assumption that the regular season will increase by one game. Until now, there has been speculation on where those 17th games will take place. We already knew that each NFC West team would be matched up against the AFC North opponent with the same spot in its standings from this past season. That means the San Francisco 49ers taking on the last-place Cincinnati Bengals in 2021. King is hearing that the AFC will be hosting all 16 of the

It was always assumed that the salary cap would end up being higher, possibly as high as between $180 million and $185 million. But it's better to work with the floor and avoid any surprises. The 49ers — and all NFL teams — officially got a (very) little more wiggle room on
