LANDOVER, Md. (CBS4) - The Denver Broncos traveled to the D.C. area and beat up on the Washington Redskins Friday night.
The Broncos won their third preseason game against the Redskins in dominant fashion. The final score was 29-17 at FedExField.
Quarterback Case Keenum and the Broncos' first-team offense scored two touchdowns and added a field goal in five series of work, led by dual-threat receiver Emmanuel Sanders. He was responsible for all 75 of Denver's yards on its second touchdown drive, catching passes of 15 and 33 yards from Keenum and scoring on a 27-yard end-around.
Sanders finished with 88 all-purpose yards.
Keenum was 12 of 18 for 148 yards before giving way to backup Chad Kelly. After Kelly was 7 of 11 for 70 yards in the third quarter, the Broncos turned to demoted QB Paxton Lynch to finish the game when up 26-10. The 2016 first-round pick completed three of seven pass attempts for 39 yards and had a 5-yard rush in what was as much a trade audition as a chance to show Denver brass he should stick around.
Denver improved to 1-2 in the preseason.
