The Broncos have been playing at a very high level lately. As a key point as to how well the Broncos have been playing the defense has really started to show up big in the game and that has helped the Broncos in getting to be seen as the team that can really slow down almost any offense they are facing.
The Broncos have seen Case Keenum throw for 2953 yards and 14 touchdowns on the year. Phillip Lindsay has carried the ball 154 times for 937 yards and 8 touchdowns on the season so far.
Sitting on a 2-10 record the 49ers are most likely going to start to explore who to take in the first round. The 49ers have had a lot of problems and most of them stem from the injuries the team has had to endure. However, as always the 49ers are starting to hold out hope for next season as they are going to be able to get a high draft pick.
The 49ers have seen C.J. Beathard has thrown for 1252 yards and only 8 touchdowns on the season. The running game for the 49ers has been spearheaded by Matt Breida who has carried the ball 132 times for 744 yards and 3 scores.
