SANTA CLARA, Calif. (AP) Paxton Lynch led three scoring drives in his bid for the starting quarterback job, Denver forced four turnovers in the first half and the Broncos beat the San Francisco 49ers 33-14 on Saturday night.

Trevor Siemian, who started Denver’s preseason opener a week ago, came off the bench to throw a touchdown pass, C.J. Anderson rushed for 24 yards and a score and Brandon McManus kicked four field goals for the Broncos (2-0).

Denver still isn’t likely much closer to making a decision on whom the starter will be despite vice president of football operations John Elway’s plea earlier this week that one of the two take control of the job.
