Niners, Broncos set to do battle in London

The storyline
We subject the good people of London to a meeting between two of the more hapless teams in the NFL this season, and particularly of late. The short week and a long trip make a coaching change impossible.

Why you should watch
Did I mention they're playing this game in London? Wembley Stadium is quite the venue.

Did you know?
Broncos wide receiver Brandon Lloyd leads the NFL with 14 20-plus yard catches. ... Denver's Laurence Maroney already has one rushing touchdown at London (in 2009). ... The 49ers played in the first international regular-season game in NFL history at Mexico City in 2005. ... San Francisco's Vernon Davis has a touchdown in four consecutive games.
