Broncos force two turnovers to end the game in 11-10 win over the 49ers

by Marko Ukalovic

It was an ugly ending to an ugly looking football game.

The Denver Broncos defense needed two turnovers at the end of the game to defeat the San Francisco 49ers on Sunday 11-10 in a sloppy game on Sunday evening at Empower Field at Mile High.

Denver quarterback Russell Wilson, stymied by San Francisco’s defense for the most of the game, came alive early in the fourth quarter using both his arm and his legs to engineer a 12 play 80-yard touchdown drive that consumed 6:04 of the clock.

Wilson was able to get himself out of tight jams during the drive, either by running for first downs when the pocket collapsed or finding receivers at the last second, including a clutch pass to Kendal Hinton for 27 yards on a third down and 10. Running back Melvin Gordon III capped off the drive with a one-yard rushing touchdown to give Denver its only lead of the game with 4:10 remaining in the fourth quarter. The two-point conversion attempt failed.

“Really in the fourth quarter, I had to kind of use my legs and kind of take over,” Wilson said. “Just try to move around and find some first downs. Kendall Hinton making that big play. I went left—I guess I can still go left.”

San Francisco (1-2) drove into Broncos territory with under three minutes remaining. Quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo was pressured by Broncos linebacker Josey Jewell, who was a thorn in the side of the Niners offense all night, and forced a errant throw into double coverage trying to connect with wide receiver Deebo Samuel. The ball was tipped up in the air and intercepted by Jonas Griffith at the Denver 41-yard line

The 49ers defense gave the offense one more chance for a winning drive when it forced a three and out and regained the ball with 1:42 remaining in the fourth quarter.

The drive lasted just two plays when running back Jeff Wilson Jr. had the ball punched out of his hands after a reception by P.J. Locke. Kareem Jackson recovered the ball at the 49ers 24-yard line to seal the fate for San Francisco.

San Francisco drew first blood on their second offensive possession. Garoppolo led a six play 75-yard scoring drive that took just over the three minutes. Garoppolo hooked up with Brandon Aiyuk on a quick slant route for a three yard touchdown reception. The drive was aided with a 37-yard run from running back Wilson Jr.

That would be as good as it got for the 49ers as their second half woes on offense was a combination of poorly called plays, penalties and turnovers that prevented them for extending their lead and repeating the success they had moving the ball in the first half.

“In the second half, never got into a rhythm. When we did, we had that fumbled snap. Got backed up (in our own end), went into the safety. Had another turnover. Didn’t get the run game quite going. When you don’t convert a third down till I think that last drive, it’s usually not a good recipe (for success),” 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan said.

Denver (2-1) had nothing to write home about on offense in the first half as Wilson, who was very familiar going up against that defense when he played in Seattle, could not establish a rhythm with the first three series ending in three straight three and outs. The Broncos managed to get a 55-yard field goal from Brandon McManus early in the second quarter.

The momentum of the game changed at the 9:51 mark of the third quarter. Backed up at their own two-yard line, Garoppolo dropped back to throw a pass out to the flat, but stepped out of bounds before he threw ball resulting in a safety (which would’ve been a pick-6 by Bradley Chubb had he not stepped out) cutting the lead down to 7-5.

“That was a tough situation I put him (Garoppolo) in. We made too many mistakes. I don’t think anyone played well on offense, including myself (in the second half),” Shanahan said.

San Francisco left tackle Trent Williams was injured on the play when his legs were taken out from behind him by Dre’Mont Jones that resulted in a high ankle sprain. He did not return to the game.

Despite tight end George Kittle’s debut where he caught four balls for 28 yards, the 49ers offense was stagnant and was dominated by Denver’s defense.

“That’s just bad offense,” said Kittle when recounting all the offense’s mistakes. “Especially when the defense is playing the way they are, giving us opportunities. I think our goal is much higher than that, but at the lowest we can’t do that.”

Wilson finished with a subpar game going 20 of 33 for 184 yards with no touchdowns but didn’t throw a interception. He was sacked four times for 24 yards. Courland Sutton led Denver in receiving with eight catches for 97 yards. Running back Javonte Williams chipped in with 58 yards on 15 carries.

“In the end, it’s just about one more point than the other team. I give so much credit to the 49ers, they’re a phenomenal team. Their defense, their offense, they are a very good team. So that was a heck of a battle,” Broncos head coach Nathaniel Hackett said.

Garoppolo went 18 of 29 for 211 yards with one touchdown and that one critical interception. He was also sacked four times for 32 yards. Samuel had five catches for 73 yards to lead San Francisco in receiving. Wilson Jr. contributed 75 yards on the ground on 12 carries.

GAME NOTES: San Francisco finished a dismal 1-for-10 on third down conversions. Denver went 6-for-19.

San Francisco linebacker Azeez Al-Shaair suffered a knee injury in the second half which Shanahan believed it could be an MCL injury.

The 49ers defense forced 10 punts, marking the most punts recorded by an opponent against the Niners since 2016 (10 punts vs Los Angeles Rams 9/12/16).

Wilson is now 17-4 in his career against San Francisco.

UP NEXT: San Francisco returns home to host the Los Angeles Rams on Monday Night Football 10/3 at 5:15pm at Levi’s Stadium.

San Francisco 49ers podcast with Joe Hawkes: Linebackers coach Holland fights through stage 3 cancer; Kittle expected back in the line up today

On the 49ers podcast with Joe Hawkes:

#1 You can’t say the San Francisco 49ers as a whole organization is not only pulling for linebackers coach Johnny Holland who is battling stage 3 cancer and yet and still is up to coming to work everyday and working with the linebackers which all things considered is astonishing.

#2 Holland said he couldn’t even pronounce the name of the disease that he learned about rom team physican Dr. Tim McAdams which is multiple myeloma. Holland has said his faith has helped him and also kept him going.

#3 Tight end George Kittle has returned to the battlefield after his groin injury in early September. Kittle told reporters this week during practice he felt wonderful. Joe how crucial is it for the Niners to get Kittle back in the line up?

#4 This will be the first time that Kittle has played against the Denver Broncos the last time was 2018 in that game he caught seven passes for 210 yards and got an 85 yard touchdown. Do the 49ers expect Kittle to be sharp or a little rusty in today’s contest.

#5 Joe, it’s going to be noisy at Empower Field the fans at Mile High are almost like a 12th man for the Broncos. The 49ers are coming off a win against the Seattle Seahawks and the Broncos are coming off a win against the Houston Texans last Sunday.

On the SF 49ers podcast with Marko:

#1 Marko, talk about the shift in power dynamics now that 49ers quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo is the starting quarterback.

#2 Trey Lance got only two series but was able to move the ball down field into the red zone on both opportunities only to have his ankle fractured in that second series. The two series did demonstrate his ability to move the ball down field and execute the playbook.

#3 Right now for the 49ers to get to the Super Bowl the 49ers will need Garoppolo to play above all NFL teams.

#4 What’s that got to be like for Garoppolo to almost get dealt and talk of it right up until the start of the regular season and now he’s the face of the team and pretty much the leader of the team after Lance’s injury.

#5 Denver is a very nosy place to play as Empower Field is like a 12th man. How much of an effort will it be for Garoppolo to get his voice heard over the Mile High crowd this Sunday.

The Hawks have asked permission to speak with the Denver Broncos defensive coordinator Ed Donatell.

#3 According to head coach of the Pittsburgh Steelers Mike Tomlin all options are on the table as his starting quarterback Ben Roethlisberger is presumed not to be returning for the 2022 season after 18 seasons as starting quarterback Roethlisberger will most likely be hanging it up and Tomlin will be searching for a new quarterback for next season.

The Warriors embarrassed by the comments are reportedly keeping themselves away from Palihapitya and his remarks and sources say Palihapitya share of the team could be bought out depending on how much the team has to do damage control over the remarks.
