Eddie Royal lets the punt go over his head, but a good bounce keeps it out of the endzone and the 49ers down it at the Broncos’ 3-yard line.
Good afternoon from London’s Wembley Stadium. The crowd is piling into the stadium in a myriad of different jerseys. The contest between the Broncos and the 49ers is almost like an International NFL convention with jerseys from all 32 team represented in the crowd.
With this being a 49ers home game, the majority of the stadium signage and field marks are in support of the red and gold. Each seat at Wembley comes with a 49ers flag, but the Broncos are represented with a painted endzone and two floats.
We should have inactives very shortly as well as some pregame pictures from the field.
