Live Blog: San Francisco 49ers at Denver Broncos - Second Half

New, comments

The first half was soiled late by a San Francisco 49ers touchdown, but nothing will take away Peyton Manning's 509th career touchdown pass to Demaryius Thomas. Denver Broncos up 21-10 at halftime.

Well that was an eventful first half. The Denver Broncos offense has controlled the day, except for one drive where the offensive line crapped itself. Meanwhile, the defense has also been fairly stout until the end of the first half when they inexplicable allows Colin Kaepernick and the San Francisco 49ers drive down for a touchdown.

Peyton Manning is now the NFL record holder for the most career touchdown passes in NFL history, surpassing Brett Favre. This is the kind of record that will stand for years. Something tells me he will need to add at least one more tonight to make sure this record-breaking day comes with a win as well.

The Broncos are still in control of this game, so the first thing they need to do in the second half is set the tone with some kind of scoring drive to keep the pressure on the 49ers offense. A touchdown would be best, but a field goal is okay in this case as well.

On the defensive side of the ball, they need to force Kaepernick to get the ball out quickly, because it seems to me that any time he is able to move around and let the defensive secondary break down it comes with a huge offensive play for the 49ers. The pressure is sorely needed and its needed in a more consistent way right now.

It's time to put this game away.
