Chad Kelly’s first act in Denver: A five-play, 75-yard drive capped with a long touchdown toss to tight end Matt LaCosse. Then it happened. A growing chant rained down from the stands: “KEL-LY, KEL-LY, KEL-LY!” The third-string quarterback jumped up and down with his teammates in the end zone.
Kelly entered the game for Denver’s second series after halftime following another forgettable night from Lynch, with the Broncos trailing 27-14. Kelly threw another TD before a bad misread and an interception. Overall, he completed 14-of-21 passes for 177 yards. He is opening eyes to at least be the team's No. 2 QB behind Keenum.
