Both the San Francisco 49ers and Denver Broncos are coming off wins in their respective debut preseason games. Both did it in different ways.
The 49ers were solid all-around, while the Broncos first team defense was spectacular, as usual, but just about everyone struggled after that.
The Denver Broncos defense picked up where they left off these past couple of seasons. In the first quarter, Chris Harris took an interception to the house.
Unfortunately, their offense picked up where it’s been the last couple of years, as well. The Broncos offense couldn’t get anything going with Trevor Siemian and Paxton Lynch leading the way at quarterback.
The offense couldn’t get going until Kyle Sloter made his debut. Sloter went 5-for-6 with 94 yards until he threw a 47 yard touchdown pass to Isaiah McKenzie to tie things up.
Halfback De’Angelo Henderson gave the Broncos the lead with a 41 yard touchdown run giving himself a legit shot at making the roster.
San Francisco 49ers
2017 might not be kind to the San Francisco 49ers, but they might not be all that far off. The foundation right now is that defensive line.
Solomon Thomas showed why he was the third pick in this year’s NFL Draft.
With Thomas involved the 49ers defensive line will consist of DeForest Buckner, Ahmed Brooks, Elvis Dumervil, and Earl Mitchell. Along with Quinton Dial and D.J. Jones rotating in, as well. That’s a strong foundation for the future so long as they stay healthy.
Offensively, it will be a struggle, but that’s why they brought in Kyle Shanahan. Brian Hoyer didn’t play much, but we know what he can do and it’s not great.
Matt Barkley and C.J. Beathard were solid in relief and that backup spot will be an interesting battle. Those two are better than a lot of second and third stringers in the league and that may lead the Niners to some quality play for the rest of preseason.
Heck, that’s why they covered and won against the Kansas City Chiefs last week.
The future at halfback maybe quickly changing as rookies Matt Breida and Joe Williams showed that they are young, talent, and have a lot less tread on the tires than the fragile Carlos Hyde.
Breida and Williams were wildly impressive and look for more touches for them in the future.

4* Free NFL Betting Prediction: 49ers -2.5
I like the San Francisco 49ers in this one. They showed that once the starters are out of the game, this team still has quality depth. The Broncos I’m not sold on their offense. Starters or backups their offense just isn’t good enough.
