Bennie Fowler made the top play of the Broncos’ preseason opener with a diving 41-yard catch from a Trevor Siemian pass, and has been making plays all of training camp for the Broncos.

He’s well on his way to earning a roster spot, and this 2nd preseason game will be critical for him. The Broncos could try and work him in with the top offense since Emmanuel Sanders is out to see what he can do against better competition, but if he keeps taking care of business against the backups, those reps will eventually come.

He’s having a heck of an offseason so far. I expect that to continue on Saturday night.
