The San Francisco 49ers’ $1.3 billion Levi’s Stadium debuted Aug. 17 in a preseason matchup with the Denver Broncos. The only glitches: There were still a few traffic snarls getting to the game, the audio for the National Anthem was spotty and the grass on the field hasn’t fully taken root. Oh, and the home team appears to have suffered a major power outage. The 49ers had managed just one Phil Dawson chip-shot field goal in their first two warmup games, and they only sniffed the goal line on their final drive Sunday. They were stopped 2 yards short, and their Levi’s housewarming party turned into a 34-0 rout at the hands of the Broncos, the first time since 1979 the 49ers had been shut out at home in either the preseason or regular season.
