Seahawks sign former 1st-round QB Paxton Lynch
RENTON, Wash. (AP) — The Seattle Seahawks are giving quarterback Paxton Lynch another chance in the NFL.
Lynch's signing Thursday throws the former first-round pick directly into the mix as a potential backup for Russell Wilson.
Lynch was cut by the Denver Broncos before the start of the 2018 season. He started four games in his first two seasons for Denver after being the No. 26 overall pick in 2016 but was not signed by any teams in 2018 after being released.
Broncos careen into another offseason of uncertainty
DENVER (AP) — In early August, cornerback Chris Harris Jr. was so impressed by Denver's revamped offense directed by new quarterback Case Keenum that he declared the Broncos would score more points in 2018 than they had in five years.
Thirty a game, 480 total, something the Broncos hadn't done since 2014 when they tallied 482 on the heels of the Peyton Manning-fueled, record-breaking 606-point season.
Broncos keep losing big games, key players
ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) — Eleven months ago, Case Keenum engineered the "Minneapolis Miracle." Now, he's one of the architects of the "Denver Debacle."
The Broncos' 27-14 loss at Oakland ensured the franchise of its first back-to-back losing seasons in 46 years and further frayed the chances of the quarterback and his coach, Vance Joseph, returning for a fix-it in 2019.
Keenum reverts to careless ways after coach’s jab
DENVER (AP) — Case Keenum wasn't the cautious quarterback his coach complained about last week. Instead, he was the careless one who made Broncos fans wonder why John Elway had spent $36 million to replace the much cheaper and just as effective Trevor Siemian.
The Broncos (6-8) were eliminated from playoff contention Sunday, marking the third consecutive year they've failed to reach the playoffs since winning Super Bowl 50.
Broncos QB Case Keenum agrees to take more chances
ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) — Case Keenum agrees he's gone from being too careless with the football to being too cautious.
Denver's quarterback said Tuesday he concurs with head coach Vance Joseph that he needs to take more downfield chances if the Broncos (6-7) are to have any chance of reaching the playoffs.
Broncos coach wants QB Case Keenum to take more chances
ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) — Case Keenum hasn't thrown an interception since October, which isn't winning him any brownie points at Broncos headquarters this week.
Coach Vance Joseph on Monday criticized his quarterback for being too cautious in Denver's damaging 20-14 loss at San Francisco .

Undermanned, overmatched Broncos fall behind, lose to 49ers
SANTA CLARA, Calif. (AP) — The Broncos looked beleaguered, beat up and undermanned against the lowly San Francisco 49ers.
Overmatched, too? You bet.
Short-handed they were, and it sure showed. Yet on this day, George Kittle might have been too much even if Denver had been at full strength.
Case Keenum got going too late in a 20-14 loss to San Francisco on Sunday, four days after top target Emmanuel Sanders went down with a torn left Achilles tendon in practice Wednesday.
FANTASY PLAYS: Burning fantasy questions for Week 13
A look at some key fantasy football questions for Week 13:
WHICH UNDER THE RADAR PLAYERS HAVE THE BEST CHANCE FOR A BIG GAME THIS WEEK?
Case Keenum finds comfort level in Denver’s offense
ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) — Case Keenum has a simple answer for why none of his passes were picked off in November after throwing interceptions in each of his first eight games as the Denver Broncos' new quarterback.
"I'm throwing it to our guys, not throwing it to the other team," Keenum said. "Who knew?"
It's actually more than just Keenum taking care of the football.
"I just think he's getting comfortable with the system," receiver Emmanuel Sanders said.
Broncos call up Hemingway, put Heuerman on IR
ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) — Temarrick Hemingway is the latest tight end to get his shot with the Denver Broncos, who have lost three tight ends to season-ending injuries.
The Broncos (5-6), who visit the Bengals (5-6) this weekend, promoted Hemingway from their practice squad Tuesday when they placed Jeff Heuerman on injured reserve.
Heuerman broke three ribs and bruised a lung in the Broncos' 24-17 win over the Pittsburgh Steelers on Sunday.
Broncos’ win takes Vance Joseph off hook for non-challenge
ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) — Vance Joseph's decision to tuck his red challenge flag back into his pants pocket loomed large until the Denver Broncos pulled off a last-second win over the Los Angeles Chargers.
Still, the failed 2-point conversion early in the fourth quarter of Denver's 23-22 last-second win highlighted a loophole in the NFL rule book that Denver's coach said Monday he'd like to see closed.
McManus’ FG as time expires lifts Broncos over Chargers
CARSON, Calif. (AP) — Denver had lost six of their last seven going into Sunday's game against Los Angeles, but Chargers coach Anthony Lynn kept warning everyone that the Broncos were dangerous because they had been in most of their games until the final minute.
Lynn's words became prophetic as Brandon McManus kicked a last-second 34-yard field goal to give the Broncos a 23-22 win and snap the Chargers' six-game winning streak.
When things go sour in the NFL, QBs often are changed
When things go sour, an NFL team's fan base often points to two people: the guy calling plays on the sideline, and the man behind center trying to execute them.
As we get deeper into the 2018 schedule, the futures of some coaches could be tied to how their quarterbacks have struggled — or outright flopped.
Doug Marrone and Blake Bortles in Jacksonville? Perhaps.
Keenum says he’s embracing the pressure of playing in Denver
ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) — Case Keenum is off to a rocky start in the shadows of John Elway, Peyton Manning and the Rocky Mountains, which he and his wife, Kimberly, visited during the Broncos' much-needed bye week.
"It's pretty. I've been looking at them for the last six months," Keenum said. "So, it was fun to go up there and enjoy that. It was good to get away."
Jets rookie QB Darnold aims for improvement in next 8 games
FLORHAM PARK, N.J. (AP) — Flashes of brilliance. Spurts of inconsistency. Steady progress.
The first eight games of Sam Darnold's NFL career have been marked by the ups and downs typical of a rookie quarterback playing his way through a crash course of a life as a pro.
Starting now, though, the face of the New York Jets franchise wants more.
Broncos’ awful week ends with squandered chance vs Chiefs
KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — The Denver Broncos wrapped up an awful week off the field with a miserable performance on it.
First came the rumors that a handful of players would be on the trading block, then came the controversial Halloween party thrown by Von Miller, after which backup quarterback Chad Kelley was arrested on suspicion of criminal trespassing and summarily cut from the roster.
Broncos’ new backup QB is former Stanford star
ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) — If anything happens to Case Keenum, the Denver Broncos' offense would be in the hands of Kevin Hogan, who rose up the depth chart when Chad Kelly slipped up.
A third-year pro, Hogan has one NFL start on a resume that includes more wins (36) and total yardage (10,634) in college than any of the all-time great quarterbacks who played for Stanford, including his boss, John Elway.
Lots of Broncos fans on hand to watch rout of Cardinals
GLENDALE, Ariz. (AP) — There were a lot of orange-clad Denver fans in the stands in Arizona.
They must have loved watching the Broncos beat down the host Cardinals 45-10 Thursday night.
"That was unbelievable," Denver quarterback Case Keenum said afterward. "It felt like a home game there for a lot of it. That was impressive. That was really cool."
Keenum hasn’t taken Denver by storm like he did Minnesota
ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) — When the Denver Broncos signed Case Keenum to a two-year, $36 million deal last spring, they figured they were getting the quarterback who had led the Vikings to within one step of the Super Bowl.
Instead, they've gotten the journeyman he was with the Texans and Rams.
Sutton’s hustle play resonates with Broncos
ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) — With the Denver Broncos getting steamrolled by the New York Jets last week, rookie receiver Courtland Sutton turned to teammates on the sideline and vowed to play hard until the very end.
He fulfilled that promise by running the length of the field to wrangle down safety Marcus Maye at the 1-yard line and prevent an end-of-game pick-6.
Jets’ Maye laughs off jokes over falling short of TD on INT
FLORHAM PARK, N.J. (AP) — Marcus Maye is in the NFL record books for one of the best plays of his football career — and easily the most embarrassing.
New QBs, different stakes for Vikings-Eagles rematch
PHILADELPHIA (AP) — This time, it's Kirk Cousins vs. Carson Wentz.
The quarterbacks and the stakes will be different when the Philadelphia Eagles (2-2) host the Minnesota Vikings (1-2-1) in a rematch of the NFC championship game Sunday.
Case Keenum hasn’t found his rhythm in Denver yet
ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) — Quarterbacks are lighting it up at a record-setting pace this season with 228 touchdown throws in the first month of the season.
Case Keenum hasn't joined the party.
The Denver Broncos' new quarterback has just three touchdown passes — none since the opener against Seattle — and his six interceptions are just one shy of the total he had last season in Minnesota.
Chiefs capitalize for 27-23 win after Broncos ditch the run
DENVER (AP) — The Denver Broncos reeled off big run after big run against the soft underbelly of the Kansas City Chiefs defense.
Phillip Lindsay and Royce Freeman ran roughshod over the Chiefs. Each scored a touchdown and Freeman eluded seven defenders and dragged a linebacker into the end zone on his 14-yard score.
Broncos revert to 2017 troubles in first road game
ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) — Things got so bad at Baltimore for the Denver Broncos that left tackle Garett Bolles had more tackles than Von Miller.
Keenum and Thomas haven’t found a rhythm yet
ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) — As a combo, the Denver Broncos' two highest-paid players aren't exactly money yet.
Although Demaryius Thomas caught the winning touchdown pass from Case Keenum in their opener, the pair making a combined $27 million this season have 10 missed connections so far.
That's almost as many connections — 11 for 81 yards — as they've made together.
Unbeaten Broncos face first road test against Ravens
BALTIMORE (AP) — Unbeaten after two games for the sixth consecutive year, Denver showed its tenacity in a pair of fourth-quarter comebacks at home.
Now it's time to see if the Broncos can win on the road.
Quarterback Case Keenum, record-setting rookie running back Phillip Lindsay, standout receiver Emmanuel Sanders and the NFL's second-ranked offense will be tested Sunday by the Baltimore Ravens, who are 60-21 on their own turf since coach John Harbaugh arrived in 2008.
Case Keenum returns to Broncos practice after missing 1 day
ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) — Denver Broncos quarterback Case Keenum returned to practice Thursday after missing a day with a sore knee.
Keenum didn't want to miss Wednesday's workout but said he understood that being cautious in September will give him a better chance of staying in the lineup all season.
Broncos QB Case Keenum skips practice with sore knee
ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) — Case Keenum said he'll be back directing Denver's offense Thursday after missing Wednesday's workout with a sore knee.
"I woke up Monday a little sore ," Keenum said. "I could have practiced today. I wanted to practice today, but they wouldn't let me. So, a good mental day, come back and be ready to go tomorrow."
Gruden says no regrets over Mack trade despite 0-2 start
ALAMEDA, Calif. (AP) — Coach Jon Gruden was in no mood to rehash Denver's final drive that handed the Oakland Raiders a second straight defeat to open his tenure as coach.
Case Keenum and the Broncos were able to move the ball down the field with little pressure in the heat and altitude of Denver and get a 36-yard field goal from Brandon McManus in the closing seconds of a 20-19 victory Sunday.
Broncos are winning again and the Raiders are still losing
DENVER (AP) — Ugly wins are a thing of beauty in Denver, where the Broncos learned all their hard lessons last year in the dreariness of defeat.
"We're sitting here 2-0 but we're struggling," Emmanuel Sanders after the Broncos eked out a 20-19 win over Oakland on Sunday on Brandon McManus' 36-yard field goal with 6 seconds left.
Broncos rally past Raiders 20-19 on McManus winner
DENVER (AP) — Case Keenum already has this fourth-quarter comeback thing down pat.
Nail-biters are almost a prerequisite for a quarterback in Denver, where John Elway set the standard with 31 fourth-quarter comebacks and Peyton Manning added 11 of his league-best 43 while wearing navy and orange.
Keenum, the architect of the "Minnesota Miracle" in the playoffs last year, followed his comeback win in his Denver debut by leading the Broncos to a 20-19 come-from-behind win against Oakland on Sunday.
The Latest: Lions, Broncos rallying late

A look at some key fantasy questions going into Week 2:
IS IT SAFE TO START PACKERS QB AARON RODGERS AGAINST THE VIKINGS?
Von Miller misses Khalil Mack, Case Keenum sure won’t
DENVER (AP) — Von Miller might be the only one at Denver Broncos headquarters lamenting Khalil Mack's startling trade from the Oakland Raiders to the Chicago Bears.
"I mean, honestly, I was shocked," Miller said. "I always felt like Khalil and Aaron Donald were untradeable guys. J.J. Watt, I thought guys like that were untradeable. Then they traded him. A guy like Khalil, he only comes around once every lifetime. You want to keep guys like that."
