    DENVER (AP) — Kirk Cousins was perfect in his cameo Womens Jaroslav Halak Jersey , and then kicked back and watched two former Broncos quarterbacks tear apart their old teammates.

    Cousins completed all four of his passes in the Vikings’ 42-28 exhibition victory Saturday night, including a 1-yard touchdown strike on a quick slant to Stefon Diggs .

    “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,” Cousins said.

    Diggs called it a good first step.

    “He’s a good quarterback,” Diggs said. “He makes some great throws.”

    Case Keenum wasn’t nearly as sharp in his Denver debut, completing just 1 of 4 passes for 5 yards spanning two drives.

    “It’s just frustrating not playing well and you don’t have a chance to bounce back from it,” Keenum said.

    Cousins was the crown jewel of this year’s free-agent class of quarterbacks, signing an $84 million, three-year 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.

    The Broncos then traded their starter Morgan Rielly Jersey , Trevor Siemian, to the Vikings to serve as Cousins’ backup — so long as he beats out Kyle Sloter, another former Denver QB.

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

    So, this preseason opener was filled with quarterback intrigue.

    After Cousins’ single series — one in which he didn’t have to face Von Miller — Siemian led Minnesota on three scoring drives, most notably a screen pass to Roc Thomas that beat the blitz for a 78-yard score .

    Siemian was 11 of 17 for 165 yards, two TDs and an interception against his old team.

    “It was a little weird for sure, but good to see old buddies,” Siemian said.

    Lynch, the former first-rounder twice beaten out by Siemian in Denver, was just 6 of 11 for 24 yards and an interception.

    “Obviously I’m upset Authentic Justin Houston Jersey ,” he said.

    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.

    Just when the crowd was starting to lament losing Siemian and Sloter, in came Kelly to fire up the crowd.

    Kelly threw a 36-yard touchdown pass to tight end Matt LaCosse. Amid chants of “Kelly! Kelly!” he also drove Denver 85 yards in 11 plays, capping the drive with a 19-yard strike to running back Phillip Lindsay to put the Broncos on top 28-27 with 10 minutes remaining.

    Sloter, who was cut by Denver a year ago, responded by throwing a 9-yard touchdown pass to Chad Beebe with six minutes left to put the Vikings back on top. His strike to Jeff Badet for the 2-point conversion made it 35-28.

    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 was 9 of 11 for 69 yards and Kelly was 14 of 20 for 176.

    Lynch might be losing in his battle to be the backup, but he insisted he’s “excited for Chad.”

    “Chad’s been playing really well and he deserves that,” Lynch said. “He’s a good kid.”

    Broncos coach Vance Joseph wasn’t quite ready to elevate Kelly to No. 2 QB, saying he had to study the film.

    “Obviously Womens Joe Mixon Jersey , Case is the starter, so that’s my main concern,” Joseph said. “Chad has played well. He played well tonight, outside of the one interception, which led to a score for those guys. He’s a guy that plays with a lot of confidence. That’s a good deal.”

    MCKENZIE MAGIC

    Joseph’s faith in McKenzie finally paid off with his punt return for a score.

    “Huge for him,” said Joseph, who stuck with McKenzie last year despite a half-dozen fumbles. “He’s obviously a talent. His issue last year wasn’t talent. It was more decision-making. We’re helping him fix that so he can help us win games.”

    NATIONAL ANTHEM

    Linebacker Brandon Marshall and wide receiver Demaryius Thomas weren’t with their teammates on the sideline for the national anthem. They emerged from the tunnel behind the Broncos’ bench after the anthem was over.

    “We didn’t know about that,” Joseph said. “But it’s their right.”

    INJURIES

    Broncos S Jamal Carter (hamstring), CB Marcus Rios (hip) and TE Austin Traylor (right shoulder) got hurt.

    Carson Wentz is trusting the process.

     

    The Philadelphia Eagles quarterback didn't participate in 11-on-11 drills for the third straight practice for precautionary reasons after taking part the first three days.

    "Just have to listen to what the doctors and coaches are saying. Just trust that plan," Wentz said Wednesday.

    Coach Doug Pederson emphasized that Wentz hasn't suffered any setbacks. He said he's encouraged by Wentz's recovery from surgery to repair a torn left ACL last December. Wentz again was on the field for the 7-on-7 portion of practice.

    "I'm very encouraged with where he's at Alex Tuch Jersey Kids ," Pederson said. "What I saw last week is enough to ease my mind. I don't need to see him in 11-on-11 drills right now. He's progressing extremely well. I don't want to subject him to any setback or anything like that. I want to keep him progressing and moving forward. Those couple of days that we had with him (last week) were very exciting, very encouraging for me."

    Wentz said he feels great physically and understands that the medical staff wants to keep him in a controlled environment. He still hasn't been cleared for contact. His goal is to be ready for Week 1 when the defending Super Bowl champions host the Atlanta Falcons on Sept. 6.

    "I'm sticking to my goal. Again, I can't say with 100 percent certainty it's going to be," Wentz said. "Ever since the injury, we've been saying it's a fluid process. Some days you're feeling better than other days. Could there be some change in plan? For sure. But this is part of the plan right now, so we're sticking to it."

    Super Bowl MVP Nick Foles gives the Eagles no reason to rush Wentz.
