Preseason Matchup: Broncos Host 49ers Today

The Denver Broncos will continue to evaluate talent and solidify plans for the upcoming season, when they host the San Francisco 49ers in Week 3 of the preseason this afternoon at 2:00 MT at Sports Authority Field. Peyton Manning will continue to be in the spotlight as Bronos fans await his first touchdown throw of 2012 (TV: FOX).

The Broncos will likely offer their last preseason look at the majority of their starters this afternoon against the 49ers.

The 49ers were a fumbled punt away from the Super Bowl last season, a power-first team that finished No. 1 in run defense and No. 1 in turnover margin (plus-28). San Francisco is also one of the teams, despite coach Jim Harbaugh’s public protest over semantics, that worked out Peyton Manning this past March in hopes of signing him.

Manning’s arm has certainly been the talking point of the preseason, both near and far. The bigger issue for the Broncos’ offense at the moment, however, has been the number of dropped passes in practice and in the preseason games, including a potential touchdown tight end Jacob Tamme dropped against the Seahawks last Saturday.

Thursday was a particularly drop-filled day at practice for the Broncos. And while that’s going to happen from time to time, it’s closing in on a trend, which isn’t something the Broncos don’t want to see today.

Tickets are available for today’s Broncos’ preseason game at Sports Authority Field vs. the San Francisco 49ers, and can be purchased by calling (720) 258-3333, or by clicking here.
