The 49ers and Broncos will square off in the second preseason matchup on August 17.

The San Francisco 49ers' 2014 preseason campaign returns to the fray when the 49ers host the Denver Broncos at Levi's Stadium on Sunday, August 17 at 4 p.m. ET.

The biggest story, of course, will be the football debut of Levi's Stadium—the 49ers' new home located in Santa Clara, Calif. roughly 45 minutes south of their long-time home Candlestick Park.

Levi's Stadium will certainly be one of the prominent topics, as viewers from around the country will catch their first glimpses of this state-of-the-art stadium in action. Indeed, it will be hard for spectators to focus entirely on the on-the-field action as they check out what this new venue has to offer.

But for the 49ers, it will be business as usual—the remaining preparations that will lead into the regular season with nothing short of a sixth Super Bowl title in view.

San Francisco is 0-1 in the preseason after dropping their first bout to the Baltimore Ravens 23-3 on August 7. Following the game, both teams entered a three-day joint practice before the 49ers headed back west to prepare for the upcoming matchup against Denver.

The 49ers had some questions to answer following their loss in the preseason opener. The situation along the offensive line bore some weight as did a number of injuries.

Hopefully the 10 days of rest in between games provides some necessary relief.

While it is still the preseason—and preseason records mean essentially nothing—San Francisco's ongoing evaluation of its roster is a necessary and beneficial step in ensuring how this team formulates itself during the upcoming season.

Let's take a peek into what we can look for as San Francisco hosts Denver in this second week of the preseason.
