The Denver Broncos made it two preseason wins on the bounce as they routed the San Francisco 49ers 34-0.

The Broncos, who lost to the Seattle Seahawks in last season’s Super Bowl, spoilt the party at the new $1.2 billion Levi's Stadium.

Peyton Manning completed 12-of-14 passes for 102 yards and connected with Julius Thomas with a 17-yard touchdown pass, while Brock Osweiler and Zac Dysert also impressed at quarterback.

Back-up Osweiler completed 10-of-13 passes for 105 yards and a touchdown, while 24-year-old Dysert threw for 63 yards and a touchdown.

The Broncos defense also caught the eye with Steven Johnson and Tony Carter picking off interceptions, while the 49ers were limited to 230 total yards.

Rushed

Cam Newton made a welcome return to action as the Carolina Panthers beat the Kansas City Chiefs 28-16.

Newton, who was back on the field after ankle surgery, completed four-of-nine passes for 65 yards and led a pair of touchdown drives.

Jonathan Stewart ran for two touchdowns to put the Panthers in control, while Fozzy Whittaker rushed for 71 yards and a touchdown. Brenton Bersin also scored following a 16-yard scoring pass from Derek Anderson.

For the Chiefs, Alex Smith completed 14-of-22 passes for 127 yards, while rookie Aaron Murray's first NFL pass resulted in a 43-yard touchdown for Travis Kelce.
