This is the live blog for the second quarter of the 49ers’ Week 7 road game against the Denver Broncos. I will update this frequently with information and analysis from my living room.
6:12 Peyton Manning completes a 15-yard pass to Demaryius Thomas on third-and-26 from the Broncos’ 29. They punt. The ball bounces out of bounds at the 49ers’ 13.
6:14 Von Miller sacks Colin Kaepernick for an 8 yard loss on first-and-10.
6:15 Next play, Kaepernick hits Stevie Johnson on a quick slant. He picks up 31.
6:27 Anquan Boldin drops a touchdown pass on third-and-goal from the 4. Phil Dawson makes a 22-yard field goal. 14-3 Broncos.
6:28 Three plays before the drop, Anquan Boldin caught an 18-yard pass on third-and-8. It looked like the ball hit the ground, but the Broncos didn’t challenge.
6:34 Julius Thomas drops a first down catch on second-and-7. On third-and-7, Manning completes a long pass to Sanders and Aaron Lynch is flagged for head butting a player. Jim Harbaugh is challenging the ruling that Sanders got both feet in bounds.
6:36 The officials confirm their ruling. Challenge fails. First-and-10 from the 49ers’ 42.
6:40 Manning throws an 8 yard TD pass to Demaryius Thomas on third-and-goal. Brock got beat. That’s TD pass No.509, breaking Brett Favre’s record for most TD passes ever. 21-3 Broncos.
6:47 Kaepernick completes a 16 yard pass to Johnson on the first play of the drive. Next play, DeMarcus Ware beats Joe Staley with a fake spin move and sacks Kaepernick for a 10 yard loss. Second and 19 from the 49ers’ 27 after the 2 minute warning.
6:48 Staley already has given up 2 sacks to Ware.
6:51 Kaepernick hits Johnson in the back of the end zone for a touchdown on first and goal from the 4. 21-10 Broncos. Three plays before the TD, Kaepernick rolled left and completed a 37-yard pass to Brandon Lloyd on third-and-17.
