Denver Broncos defeated San Francisco 49ers 10-11 in the star game on Sunday from Empower Field at Mile High Colorado.

The match started with two very unpromising offensive series. The first, of San Franciscobarely passed two minutes long and with only seven moves and 16 yardsthose commanded by the head coach mike shanahan They relinquished possession. For its part, Denver didn’t even make it to two minutes and with a three and out they returned the ball.

In his second series 49ers they would show themselves much better with the ovoid, opening with an accurate pass from Jimmy Garoppolo, who returned to ownership after the injury of Trey Lancea Brandon Aiyuk for 20 yards. The great play in the air would be complemented by another great play now on the ground with a rushing for 37 yards by Jeff Wilson Jr. With only two plays, the visitors were already knocking on the door in the Denver red zone.

They followed a nine-yard pass to the tight end George Kittlewho made his season debut off a groin injury, followed by a one-yard run and five-yard run to Deebo Samuel. The offensive series concluded in second chance and three with a short pass to Aiyukwith whom he started the attack and now put the 7-0 in favor of San Francisco.

The broncos they had their best offense so far a few seconds from the end of the first quarter. Russell Wilsonwho has yet to show the level he was brought to Denver from the Seahawks for, opened with a 34-yard long pass to Cameron Sutton. Already in the 40, Wilson was captured by Kerry Hyder Jr.

This would not stop the attack and with another pass, now 16 yards, the Broncos were already in the rival’s 40. The next drive did not find much success on the ground, so the kicker Brandon McManus entered to take charge of the situation, turning a g55 yard field ol and put things 7-3.

In his first drive of the second quarter, ‘Jimmy G’ opened again with a long yardage play to Deebo Samuelwho contributed 32 yards and placed his team on his 47-yard line. The impact of the play would be diminished with a punishment of holding that would return them to the 37. The quarterback would reconnect with kittle and samuel but they weren’t able to overcome the yards lost and they cleared.

In an impressive and controversial move, the San Francisco special teams cornered the Broncos at their own 1-yard lineafter the ball bounced within millimeters of the end zone and remained in play for the marking.

Despite the effort in clearance, Denver quickly got out of the compromising zone a with a seven-yard run from Javonte Williamsfollowed by a short pass to cameron sutton. Williams, a second year in the NFL, surprised again with two consecutive runs for 27 yards total.

On the next play the veteran runner Melvin Gordon would catch a Wilson’s ‘shovel pass’ acrobatic that would end with the Broncos knocking on the door in the 28 of San Francisco.

The moment of the game changed in two moves, the first, an impressive anticipation of Talanoa Hufanga Gordon stopped six yards behind the line of scrimmage, followed by a sack of DrakeJackson, first of his career, the Colorado attack ended.

Garoppolo was tasked with leading the two-minute series but they would be quickly arrested by the defense, returning the ball. with the return, Wilson would have minute and a half from the 50 yard to work but was also unable to put together a forceful attack and cleared . The first half would conclude without either of them contributing to the score that remained 7-3.

Denver had the first chance on the return but were unable to even gain yards, ending their drive after one minute thirteen seconds with -4 yards.

Nevertheless, San Francisco he wouldn’t be doing himself any favors and on his first drive of the second half a miscommunication between the center and Garoppolo ended in a loose ball and recovered by Jose Jewell of the defensive Denver couldn’t do anything offensively and they missed an invaluable opportunity.

The denver punt team, who, together with their rival, were among the most remarkable of the match, locked up San Francisco in the 2 yard. Garoppolo would make a costly mistake when with the pressure of the defense he forgot the limits of the field and floor outside of the same for a safety and reduce your advantage to 7-5.

Wilson began a short yardage but six minute drive that would take them to the rival 35-yard line. After failing to convert on the third chance, McManus would look to take the lead but on a kick of 53 yards he sent the ball loaded to the right and the attempt was unsuccessful.

The final chapter of the meeting opened with the first field goal for the 49ers on a 49-yard attempt that was connected by Robbie Gould for 10-5.

With 10 minutes into the game Russell Wilson would finally give glimpses of the superstar that the Broncos signed until 2027, leading a six-minute drive that would go 80 yards. The quarterback would charge with the offense, completing four passes for 58 yards and a carry of 12 where he would risk the physical for the first opportunity.

Already at the rival 1 yard Melvin Gordon took advantage of his blocks and entered the end zone unopposed to take advantage 10-11. Denver went for the conversion to be a field goal away but the attempt was unsuccessful and the home advantage was kept as low as possible.

The little hopes of the Californians vanished two plays later when a pass was deflected to end up in the hands of Jonas Griffith.

San Francisco once again stopped Denver and started their last offense of the matchor looking for a miracle. To his bad luck, the defense had two of its best plays in the game, the first, a catch for -12 yards courtesy of Bradley Chubbfollowed by a fumble recovered by Kareem Jacksonsealing the win 10-11.
