Broncos beat 49ers 33-14 Saturday

Posted: Updated:

Paxton Lynch led three scoring drives in his bid for the starting quarterback job, Denver forced four turnovers in the first half and the Broncos beat the San Francisco 49ers 33-14 on Saturday night.
Trevor Siemian, who started Denver's preseason opener a week ago, came off the bench to throw a touchdown pass, C.J. Anderson rushed for 24 yards and a score and Brandon McManus kicked four field goals for the Broncos (2-0).
Denver still isn't likely much closer to making a decision on whom the starter will be despite vice president of football operations John Elway's plea earlier this week that one of the two take control of the job.
Lynch was 9 of 13 and showed good pocket presence by scrambling out of trouble a few times, but managed only 39 yards through the air in less than two quarters. Siemian put up more passing numbers (49) on his first drive and finished 8 of 11 for 93 yards.
As good as their offense was, the Broncos' defense was better despite being without linebackers Von Miller and Brandon Marshall and cornerback T.J. Ward.
Denver converted the three turnovers - two fumble recoveries and an impressive interception by Chris Lewis-Harris, who wrestled the ball from 49ers wide receiver Marquise Goodwin as both men fell to the turf - into 13 points.
San Francisco's Brian Hoyer was 8 of 11 for 89 yards and an interception while garnering a 58.5 passer rating. Third-round draft pick C.J. Beathard passed for 110 yards and a touchdown in his attempt to beat out Matt Barkley for the backup job.
