            === Broncos edge 49ers in game with no offensive TDs ===
 
 San  Francisco, CA  (Sports Network)  - Shaun  Phillips' fumble  return for  a
 touchdown  proved to  be the difference as  the Denver Broncos took a 10-6 win
 over  the San  Francisco  49ers in  the  preseason opener  for  both clubs  on
 Thursday.
 
 Peyton  Manning  played just  one series  and went 2-for-4  for 13 yards while
 Brock Osweiler was 13-for-18 for 105 yards and Matt Prater kicked a field goal
 in  the fourth  quarter for the Broncos,  who went 13-3 last season to win the
 AFC  West, winning their final 11 games in the regular season before losing to
 Baltimore in the divisional round of the playoffs.
 
 Colin Kaepernick led the 49ers to a 32-yard field goal from Phil Dawson on the
 first drive of the game and finished his brief stint on the field 4-for-4 with
 38 yards.
 
 Dawson  later  added a  38-yard  field  goal in  the  fourth  quarter for  San
 Francisco, which lost to Baltimore in the Super Bowl after going 11-4-1 in the
 regular season and winning the NFC West.
 
 Phillips  recovered a Kassim Osgood fumble deep in San Fran territory and took
 it  into  the end zone from  nine yards out in  the second quarter to give the
 Broncos a 7-3 lead.
 
 After  a scoreless third quarter, Dawson connected on his second field goal of
 the  game with  around 10 minutes to  play to make it a one-point contest, but
 Prater  hit his  46-yarder with close to  three minutes to play as the Broncos
 hung on for the win.
