The San Francisco 49ers open up Levi's Stadium Sunday afternoon when they host the Denver Broncos at 1 p.m. PT. The second game is usually a chance to see starters a little bit more, but not quite as much as in Week 3. Of course, I still don't think we'll see a whole lot of Colin Kaepernick. My guess is two series, but we'll see. The coaching staff would seem to need some more action from the backup quarterbacks.
Today's game will be broadcast nationally on NFL Network, in the Bay Area on KPIX-5 (CBS), and in Denver on My/20 (KTVD). The NFL Network broadcast will pick up the 49ers feed. Here are some of the regions where the 49ers and Broncos broadcasts will air:
