Coach John Fox was so pleased with Manning’s play, he took him out after less than a quarter of work.
"I’ve seen steady improvement since he got here and that’s a tribute to him, his work ethic, his offensive coaches, his teammates," Fox said. "For being a first-year guy, to come in and learn an offense and execute an offense with the precision he has is pretty good."
Manning threw his first two TD passes as a Bronco and led Denver to scores on all three of his drives, diagnosing the defense at the line of scrimmage just as if he’s always done.
"I think he knew what we were going to do before the snap even happened," 49ers linebacker Ahmad Brooks said.
