Final Score: Broncos 10, 49ers 6

The Broncos opened the 2013 preseason with a 10-6 win in San Francisco, aided by a sloppy Niners offense that turned the ball over four times.

Denver scored on a fumble forced by Nate Irving and returned nine yards by Shaun Phillips, plus a 46-yard field goal by Matt Prater.

San Francisco's points came via two thirtysomething-yard field goals by Phil Dawson.

Duke Ihenacho (7 solo tackles, 1 TFL, 1 FF, 1 PD), Julius Thomas (4 catches, 35 yards), Irving (4 solo tackles, 1 sack, 1 TFL, 1 FF), and C.J. Anderson (15 carries, 69 yards) stood out for the Broncos.

Rahim Moore added a fumble recovery, while Mike Adams and Kayvon Webster each had an interception.

Best of all, according to John Fox, there are no injuries to report.
