  • Case Keenum is finally 'the guy' at quarterback taking over reins for Denver Broncos

Case Keenum was 1-for-4. He played well tonight, outside of the one interception, which led to a score for those guys.

Cousins, the former Washington QB, was the crown jewel of this year's free- agent class of quarterbacks, signing a fully-guaranteed, three-year $84 million deal in Minneapolis. That meant Keenum was out two months after leading the Vikings to the NFC championship, and he signed a $36 million, two-year deal with Denver.

That left Paxton Lynch and Chad Kelly vying for No. 2 duty in Denver.

Thomas caught two touchdowns, including this 78-yard screen pass from quarterback Trevor Siemian. Lynch went 6-for-11 for 24 yards with an interception and a sack.

The Broncos were outgained 269-61 in the first half of a loss to the Vikings on Saturday night.

Kelly threw a 36-yard touchdown pass to tight end Matt LaCosse to pull Denver to 27-21 and amid chants of "Kelly!"

Vikings rookie running back Roc Thomas is fighting for a roster spot, and he made a good case for himself in the team's preseason debut against the Broncos.

Veteran quarterback Geno Smith, who is trying to win the job of backing up Phillip Rivers, threw for 218 yards and one touchdown as Los Angeles lost to Arizona in Phoenix.

Johnny Manziel stays in game despite taking shot to head
Manziel's finished the game 16-for-26 for 168 yards, no touchdowns and perhaps most importantly, zero interceptions. It was Harris' first receiving touchdown of the season, and put Ottawa ahead 11-5 - its first lead of the game.

Safety Jack Tocho picked off Kelly at the Denver 30-yard line with 5:23 left, and Sloter sealed it with a 14-yard bootleg for the score.

Sloter completed 9 of 11 passes, including a 9-yard strike to wide receiver Chad Beebe in the fourth quarter.

"Huge for him", said Joseph, who stuck with McKenzie a year ago despite a half-dozen fumbles.

On Saturday evening, Siemian returned to Denver with Minnesota for a cross-conference preseason showdown.

Here are the five biggest takeaways from the matchup against the Minnesota Vikings. They emerged from the tunnel behind the Broncos' bench after the anthem was over.

The league and the NFLPA have yet to announce a policy for this season regarding demonstrations during the anthem after the league initially ordered everyone to stand on the sideline when the anthem is played, or remain in the locker room.

Broncos S Jamal Carter (hamstring), CB Marcus Rios (hip) and TE Austin Traylor (right shoulder) got hurt. TE Jake Butt made his National Football League debut, starting in place of Jeff Heuerman (left knee), and Max Garcia started in place of LG Ron Leary (knee).
