Case Keenum didn't lead the Broncos to any points while playing quarterback for two drives on Saturday night and said after the game that the brief and unsuccessful cameo "definitely left me wanting more".

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

Case Keenum was 1-for-4.

Keenum wasn't the only Broncos quarterback whose performance was lacking against the Vikings.

But before he was picked off, Kelly really put on a show and may have permanently pushed himself ahead of Paxton Lynch for the Broncos' top backup job.

Siemian, who began his career with the Broncos, came on to hit on 11 of 17 passes with one interception.

Despite 17 yards passing overall in the first half, the Broncos only trailed 24-14 at halftime thanks to Isaiah McKenzie's 78-yard punt return for a TD and rookie Royce Freeman's 23-yard TD scamper - Denver's only first down before halftime.

Chad Kelly came on and played much better, throwing for 177 yards, two touchdowns and an interception on 14-for-21 accuracy, drawing a rave review from the crowd.

Cousins completed all four of his passes, which included a 1-yard touchdown to Diggs on a quick slant, but the dart to the newly well-paid wide receiver was the most encouraging play.

Sloter completed 9 of 11 passes, including a 9-yard strike to wide receiver Chad Beebe in the fourth quarter. Sloter also ran 14 yards for a score with about three minutes left in the game.

"I think it was a smooth first drive but it is a small sample size and the next couple of weeks will be a good test for us", said Cousins, who then kicked back and watched two former Broncos quarterbacks tear apart their old teammates.

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