George Kittle's 85-yard touchdown reception helps lift 49ers

SANTA CLARA, Calif. (AP) George Kittle caught an 85-yard touchdown pass on the way to 210 yards receiving and became the 49ers' first tight end to reach the 1,000-yard milestone, leading San Francisco past the sluggish, injury-plagued Denver Broncos 20-14 on Sunday.

Kittle finished just shy of Shannon Sharpe's NFL record by a tight end of 214 yards receiving, not having a catch nor as many chances in the second half. Kittle had seven receptions in all on nine targets.

His long TD reception on a pass from Nick Mullens early in the second quarter put the Niners up 13-0 - and Denver (6-7) never found a groove in seeing its three-game winning streak snapped.
