In an exhibition game that was controlled completely by the Denver Broncos, several players shined in a 33-6 victory.
Coming into Saturday’s game, Denver Broncos QB Drew Lock knew he would have the opening act. Facing a Minnesota Vikings team that had serval starters sitting out, Drew Lock needed to shine. That he did.
Much like Lock, players like KJ Hamler put their athletic dominance on display today. Within the first six and a half minutes of the game, Hamler had two receptions for 105 yards and a touchdown. Kamler was the recipient of an 80-yard bomb from Lock midway through the first quarter.
Teddy Bridgewater also had a fine game, but Lock’s upside won the day. Bridgewater went 7-8 for 74 yards and a touchdown himself. Another player to shine was Trinity Benson.
Benson was the recipient of multiple touchdown passes in the game; he actually caught one from each quarterback. Von Miller & Bradley Chubb did not play today and undrafted rookie Andre Mintze took this as a golden opportunity.
Mintze had a sack, several pressures, and showed incredible athletism. Patrick Surtain II housed an interception early that had Broncos Country raving. Overall in a dominating performance, there were multiple winners.
Losers of this game were far and few between, which is about as great of news Broncos Country could hope for. During this game, an interception was returned for a touchdown, there was safety, an 80-yard touchdown pass, and great physicality.
So who won the day and who lost the day?
