49ers rally late to beat Broncos 24-16 in London

WEMBLEY, England (AP) - Backup Troy Smith found his range in the fourth quarter to lead the San Francisco 49ers to a 24-16 win over the Denver Broncos on Sunday in the NFL's fourth regular-season game in London.

In his first start as a 49er, Smith had a 28-yard touchdown pass to Michael Crabtree with 7:23 left to help San Francisco (2-6) take a 17-10 lead. Frank Gore scored another with 3:47 to go, running in from the 3.

A few minutes earlier, Smith made it 10-10 by rushing for a 1-yard touchdown after completing back-to-back passes to Delanie Walker, the first for 27 yards and the second for 38.

The Broncos (2-6) got their first touchdown in the third when Tim Tebow ran in from 1 yard after Kyle Orton connected with Brandon Lloyd for 71 yards.
