Denver Broncos quarterback Paxton Lynch (12) passes against the Minnesota Vikings during an National Football League preseason game at Broncos Stadium at Mile High on August 11, 2018 in Denver.

After last season's carousel at the position in which three players - Trevor Siemian, Brock Osweiler and Lynch - started, the Broncos signed Case Keenum during the offseason. Lynch went 6-for-11 for 24 yards with an interception and a sack.

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

"Obviously I'm upset", Lynch told reporters after the game.

The Denver Broncos did not have a strong preseason debut for the most part, though there were some individual performers who stood out.

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.

"Chad's been playing really well and he deserves that", Lynch said.

Broncos coach Vance Joseph wasn't quite ready to elevate Kelly to No. 2 QB, saying he had to study the film. "I'm proud of Chad and I'm glad Chad had the opportunity and got to play the way he did". He played well tonight, outside of the one interception, which led to a score for those guys. "That's a good deal".

Linebacker Brandon Marshall and wide receiver Demaryius Thomas weren't with their teammates on the sideline for the national anthem.

Broncos S Jamal Carter left in the second quarter with a hamstring injury.
