Mostert, 49ers race past Broncos

Raheem Mostert and Jeff Wilson Jr. ran for third-quarter touchdowns, and the San Francisco 49ers posted a 24-15 win over the host Denver Broncos on Monday in preseason action.

Mostert, who finished with six carries for 58 yards, ran 30 yards for his TD, bursting up the middle, cutting right and then sailing to the end zone untouched. Wilson added a 1-yard scoring run.

San Francisco starting quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo played three series, resulting in an interception and two punts. He completed just 1 of 6 passes for 0 yards.

Garoppolo's backup, C.J. Beathard, went 5 of 11 for 81 yards for the 49ers (2-0).

Joe Flacco connected on 7 of 11 passes for 59 yards while playing the first quarter for the Broncos (1-2).

"A lot of things felt good," Flacco told the ESPN broadcast midgame. "I'm excited about how it went overall. We just have to clean up a couple of those things that we messed up."

Denver quarterback Kevin Hogan threw an interception but also ran 24 yards for a fourth-quarter touchdown. He completed 5 of 15 passes for 40 yards.
