The Denver Broncos begin the last quarter of their regular season against the San Francisco 49ers. We take a look at some key matchups and preview the game.

Good old Levi’s Stadium in Santa Clara, California. Some good memories in that stadium if you are a Denver Broncos fan. Sunday will mark the first regular season game at Levi’s Stadium since the Broncos won Super Bowl 50.

Von Miller will get the chance to terrorize the 49ers offense on the same field where he won the Super Bowl 50 MVP. So far, Denver has not lost a game at Levi’s Stadium. (knock on wood)

Denver enters the final quarter of the 2018 season just one game out of the final wild card spot. Tennessee’s win over the Jacksonville Jaguars on Thursday did not help. Which means the Broncos need to win to keep pace with the other teams fighting for that spot.

Denver will not get to improve on their conference record this weekend as they play their final NFC opponent of the season. But a win is just as important in this game.

For the San Francisco 49ers, they have seen their season go down in flames since losing Jimmy Garoppolo for the season. They were officially eliminated from the playoffs last week following their loss to the Seattle Seahawks.

The 49ers have only pride to play for at this point. And they want to play spoiler for any team they come across that has a shot at the postseason. That includes the Denver Broncos. How will this game play out? Let us take a closer look into this matchup.
