"I thought we did some good things today," Manning said. "We moved the ball pretty well and we got two touchdowns. It would have been nice to get three, had to settle to for a field goal. I thought the running game was good. Willis [McGahee] made some nice runs, had some nice holes by the offensive line, the receivers made some nice plays, as well."
Alex Smith threw a 49-yard TD pass and David Akers kicked five field goals for the Niners, who outscored the Broncos' backups 19-0 in the second half but lost wide receiver Ted Ginn Jr. to an ankle injury early in the second half.
Panthers 17, Jets 12 • Tim Tebow got the fans fired up with a dazzling 20-yard run in the fourth quarter, but threw an interception three plays later as Carolina held on for the road victory. The Jets still haven't scored a TD through three preseason games.
