Denver played San Francisco during week two of the 2014 preseason, defeating the 49ers 34-0. But hey, that’s preseason.

Manning vs The NFC West Betting Trends

There is only one division in the NFL in which Peyton Manning has a losing record against: the AFC East at 26-27. He is 9-9 vs the NFC West in his career, throwing 30 TDs and 21 INTs.

Manning has faced two NFC West teams already this season, losing to the Seahawks in Seattle and beating the Arizona Cardinals at home while throwing 6 TDs and 3 INTs in both games.

Against the 49ers, he has won two and lost another two, with 5 TDs and 6 INTs in his last 4. In fact, those 6 INTs by the 49ers defense are the most by any NFC West team.

Manning will have to outwit the second best against the pass defense in the league this Sunday night, which means the record books may not be tearing out any pages until next week.

49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick is in his fourth year in the league but has never faced the Denver Broncos as a starter. He has 1-0 record against AFC West teams after he beat the Kansas City Chiefs just two weeks ago, 22-17.

Kaepernick will face the 16th best pass defense and the 4th best run defense. The Broncos allow 20.8 points per game, 7th best in the NFL.
