The San Francisco 49ers did not have the worst loss in the Jim Harbaugh era tonight. That was saved in the final minute with a late touchdown.
With exactly 1:00 left in the game, Blaine Gabbert connected with receiver Bruce Ellington on a 20-yard touchdown. This made the score 42-17, securing Harbaugh’s worst loss in 2012.
On December 23rd, 2012 against the Seattle Seahawks at CenturyLink Field, the 49ers lost 42-13. These are the two worst losses in Harbaugh’s tenure.
The 49ers also had another touchdown in the game when Colin Kaepernick hit Stevie Johnson with 11 seconds left in the second quarter to make it 21-10 at halftime.
After the break, the Broncos scored three straight touchdowns, before the Ellington late touchdown.
