The Denver Broncos and the San Francisco 49ers travel to London’s Wembley Stadium on October 31st for a matinee Halloween slug fest. The San Francisco 49ers and the Denver Broncos are both on the ropes early in this 2010 NFL campaign. The San Francisco 49ers lost to a win less Carolina Panthers team and the Denver Broncos were dismantled by the Oakland Raiders on their home field in an embarrassing loss.
Denver Broncos Offense vs San Francisco 49ers Defense
Kyle Orton the quarterback of the Denver Broncos has been impressive to begin the season but now it appears Knowshon Moreno could be healthy. Moreno could change the pass first Denver Broncos offense with his solid running. If Moreno begins clipping off 100 yard games in Denver it could be interesting how it affects their passing game and Kyle Orton.
One of the primary reasons it is tough to write off the struggling San Francisco 49ers is their defense. Patrick Willis leads a tough and hard hitting San Francisco 49ers defense this is allowing just over 200 yards passing. The weakness on defense is the run defense. The San Francisco 49ers run defense is allowing over 111 yards per game and if Knowshon Moreno is back to 100% he can have a big day. The Denver Broncos offense has the edge over the San Francisco 49ers defense.
San Francisco 49ers Offense vs Denver Broncos Defense
Alex Smith was one of the reasons for the San Francisco 49ers dismal start. Smith’s inability contributed to the ineffectiveness of running back Frank Gore. Gore and the San Francisco 49ers run offense has been held under a 100 yard average to this point of the season and if teams do not respect the pass it will be a long season. With Smith out and David Carr in it could help get Gore and the running game in gear.
The Denver Broncos have lost their edge defending against the run but they are in the middle of the pack when it comes to their pass defense. Champ Bailey is a key to the Denver Broncos solid shut down pass defense bit his safety help is young and still learning. Watching Darren McFadden of the Oakland Raiders destroy the Denver Broncos defense could give the San Francisco 49ers a blueprint to take down the Denver Broncos. The San Francisco 49ers offense will have a slight edge over the Denver Broncos defense.
