Week 2 of the NFL preseason continues tonight with two marquee match-ups including the Broncos vs 49ers live stream and TV coverage thanks to the NFL Network. Both of these teams will enter the 2014 season with one goal - Super Bowl or bust! The Broncos and Niners are loaded with talent on both sides of the ball, but will that be enough to carry either one of them to a championship?
According to Bleacher Report on Aug.16, the Broncos are coming off a 21-16 win at home against the Seattle Seahawks, while San Francisco is entering Week 2 on a dismal note after looking out of sync in their 23-3 loss to Baltimore. While both of these teams carry big name quarterbacks, don't expect to see Peyton Manning or Colin Kaepernick in the game too long.
Depending on ball control, it is doubtful that the starters for either side will play more than one quarter. Most NFL teams will let it all hang out so-to-speak next weekend in the all important Week 3 games. In Week 3 most teams play their starters for a half or 3 quarters depending on the flow of the game.
The 49ers and Broncos are both known for their hard hitting, which is exactly why fans won't see many starters in the game after the first quarter. The final score to today's game isn't half as important as avoiding injuries, although the final score does matter to Las Vegas odds makers and sports wagering enthusiasts!
Vegas sports books have the 49ers listed at -5 with the over/under number set at 41.
Fans will be able to catch all of the action nationally on NFL Network and streaming online through the NFL package starting at 4 p.m. ET.
