The Broncos are not expected to have an on-field practice Monday, but are expected to bring the players in for meetings, treatment and weight-room work. The team's usual practice time would have been during the solar eclipse.

FINAL: Broncos 33, 49ers 14. The Broncos moved to 2-0 in the preseason as they forced four turnovers when the first- or second-teamers were in the game and they forced a fifth turnover in the fourth quarter. And now the wait will begin to see when coach Vance Joseph makes the decision at quarterback.

Former Broncos quarterback Brian Griese on preseason telecast on Paxton Lynch -- "he's not ready...as far as as Day 1 starter I don't think he's done enough to earn that."

HALFTIME: Broncos 20, 49ers 0. The Broncos forced four turnovers in the opening half and turned all four into points. Paxton Lynch finished his night's work 9-of-13 passing for 39 yards to go with 27 yards rushing. Trevor Siemian had the last Broncos' possession of the first half and went 4-of-5 passing for 49 yards and a touchdown.

Coaches will likely tell Paxton Lynch he has to recognize that rusher pre-snap and get the ball out rather than take the sack. If his night is over he has 39 yards passing, 27 yards rushing with three scoring drives after three 49ers' turnovers.

Broncos got quality field position twice in first quarter after 49ers turnovers. They finished first quarter with 45 yards of offense -- 21 passing, 24 rushing.

The Broncos who will not play tonight include: Von Miller, Todd Davis, Brandon Marshall, Emmanuel Sanders and Cody Latimer. Coach Vance Joseph said earlier in the week that Jamaal Charles and Matt Paradis would not play. T.J. Ward and Derek Wolfe did not make the trip.

And the scorecard for the Broncos quarterbacks going into Saturday night's game against the 49ers: --Trevor Siemian has "won'' more individual practice days, has shown the timing in the offense the coaches want more often and thrown fewer interceptions – Paxton Lynch has had multiple days with two interceptions. --Paxton Lynch has shown more big-play flair, had his best camp day Thursday and his mobility, when he times it right, adds a dimension to his play the Broncos like.

Jeff Legwold ESPN Senior Writer 

If the Denver Broncos see what they want from at least one of their top two quarterbacks tonight in Santa Clara, Calif., there is a good chance coach Vance Joseph would then announce a decision in the coming week. If Joseph and the other coaches want to see more, they'll ask Trevor Siemian and Paxton Lynch to battle it out at least another week going into the Aug. 26 game against the Green Bay Packers.
