49ers Vs. Broncos Halftime Score: Denver Leads 24-10 Behind Two Peyton Manning TD Passes

The Denver Broncos have taken a 24-10 lead into the locker room halfway through Sunday's preseason contest vs. the San Francisco 49ers. Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning threw two touchdown passes before coming out of the game in the first quarter.

Manning played the first three possessions of the game for Denver, and the Broncos scored on all of them. The first drive went eight plays and 45 yards and resulted in a 53-yard field goal from Matt Prater, while Manning connected for TD passes to wide receiver Eric Decker on the next two drives. Manning looked sharp, completing 10 of 12 passes for 122 yards and the two scores.

Caleb Hanie replaced Manning near the end of the first quarter, and proceeded to throw an interception, ending his first drive. However, the Colorado State alum connected with fellow former Ram Joel Dreessen on a touchdown with just 36 seconds left in the half.
