The 49ers couldn’t compete with Peyton Manning and the Denver Broncos Sunday night, losing 42-17. The game started with a 49ers three and out followed by a Bronco’s touchdown drive.
The 49ers played one of the AFC’s best and lost big. They played an elite team and didn’t play well, so San Francisco was blown out. However, it’s just one loss and one that is no surprise at the end of the day.
Peyton Manning broke Brett Favre’s NFL record for career touchdown passes and the Denver Broncos led the San Francisco 49ers 42-10 after three quarters Sunday night.
The 49ers will fight to keep Peyton Manning from breaking an NFL record Sunday night in Denver.
The 49ers are hurting even more on defense as they prepare to meet the Broncos in Denver Sunday night, with linebacker Patrick Willis now sidelined with a toe injury.
After an impressive performance on Monday Night, the 49ers get to try and keep things going this week against the Broncos. Another good game and the 49ers will have confidence and momentum heading into their week off. A loss though could create some doubt in a team still fighting for its playoff life.
Thursday night’s game between the Colts and Texans featured two of the top NFL players on both sides of the ball, according to John Madden.
Peyton Manning is seen as one of, if not, the greatest quarterback to play in the NFL. After the five-time MVP’s performance against the Arizona Cardinals on Sunday, it is fitting to remember why Manning is so loved by fans, non-fans, and those within the league.
Fans in the bay area have been debating for 2 years if Alex Smith is the better option at quarterback for the 49ers. After watching he and Colin Kaepernick face each other this past weekend, and looking at how their numbers, it’s obvious San Francisco nailed this one.
Including Sunday’s Week Five action, the San Diego Chargers are 4-1, the Denver Broncos are 3-1, and the Kansas City Chiefs are 2-3. Each team has a positive points differential, while the Oakland Raiders are 0-4 with a minus-52 differential. Yes, it’s going to be a long season for the Silver & Black.
