49ers Vs. Broncos Score Update: San Francisco Fights Back in 3rd, Cuts Denver's Lead To 24-20

The Denver Broncos are in the process of weathering a storm from the San Francisco 49ers, who fought back in the third quarter to cut Denver's lead to 24-20.

The defensive depth for the Broncos got tested big time during this quarter, as the 49ers came storming out of the locker room with a 4-play, 80-yard drive that was capped off by a 26-yard touchdown run from Anthony Dixon. Then, after rookie quarterback Brock Osweiler and the Broncos had a quick three-and-out, the Niners picked up 45 more yards on seven plays. Everything culminated with a David Akers field goal that cut the Denver lead to four.

Osweiler was able to convert a first down in the next drive, as he completed an eight-yard pass to Andre Caldwell on 3rd and 7.

To this point in the game, the Broncos have outgained the 49ers on offense, 283 yards to 240.
