Denver Broncos vs San Francisco 49ers : NFL preseason games usually have little importance, but the San Francisco 49ers’ Week 2 game against the Denver Broncos marks Jimmy Garoppolo’s return to game action. Here’s what to look for.
Denver Broncos vs San Francisco 49ers
The San Francisco 49ers are on pace for a perfect season and over 10,000 penalty yards. At least, that’s what extending their preseason win versus the Dallas Cowboys last week over the course of a full season shows.
The point I’m making is that preseason results don’t mean anything. The games are glorified practices. However, there is something to be said for getting under the lights of an NFL game and feeling the pressure of fans and the media watching you.
The Denver Broncos (1-1) will host the San Francisco 49ers (1-0) in their third of five preseason games in 2019. They held two joint practice sessions at UCHealth Training Center on Friday and Saturday, with the latter session being fairly chippy with some fighting between the two teams.
Former Broncos head coach Mike Shanahan was on hand this week with ties to both teams as his son Kyle is currently the head coach of the 49ers. He knows current head coach Vic Fangio quite well and his impressions of Fangio seem to align with the Fangio we’ve come to know throughout Broncos training camp.
The Denver Broncos are set to take on the San Francisco 49ers in preseason action on “Monday Night Football” this evening. Time is starting to run out for the players sitting on the team’s roster bubble.
Here are four guys that need to have a strong performance in this game in order to either keep their name on that bubble or start to move further from it and closer to the 53-man roster.
