The Denver Broncos and the San Francisco 49ers clash at Sports Authority Field at Mile High on Sunday.

The Denver Broncos conclude the home portion of the 2012 preseason schedule when they welcome the San Francisco 49ers to Sports Authority Field at Mile High on Sunday afternoon. The Broncos lost their last game, a 30-10 decision to the Seattle Seahawks at home.

This will be Peyton Manning's third game back from neck surgery and everyone will once again look for a solid performance. He has completed 66.7 percent of his passes (20-of-30) for 221 yards, but he has yet to throw a touchdown. Rather, he has been intercepted three times, twice by the Seahawks. His playing time this week certainly might be curtailed, having worked the entire first half last week. However, the third game is often used as a dress rehearsal for the regular season. This will certainly be something to watch during the afternoon.

The 49ers enter this contest also with a loss in their last game, falling to the Houston Texans on the road, 20-9. Alex Smith and Colin Kaepernick will appear at quarterback while the ground attack will feature Frank Gore, Kendall Hunter and LaMichael James. Brandon Jacobs is out with a knee injury. The Broncos will also get a look at outside linebacker Aldon Smith, Von Miller's competitor for defensive rookie of the year in 2011.

Kickoff: 2:00 p.m. MT, Sunday, Aug. 26

TV: FOX

Sirius: 88
