Inside Linebacker Stewart Bradley had 5 tackles, and Safety Duke Ihenacho had 7 tackles in a dominant performance by the Denver Defense. The 49er passed for only 237 yards and their running game was held below 100 net yards.
Running back CJ Anderson from Cal was the main standout on offense with 69 yard rushing, and Receiver Julius Thomas had 4 receptions for 35 yards.
The biggest play of the 10-6 win was a TD fumble recovery run into the end zone by Linebacker Shaun Phillips. Mike Adams also played well at Safety and had an interception.
Great start for the Broncos defense. The Denver offense really needs more practice and struggled for most of the game against the 49ers.
