Touchdown. Another huge mistake by Trevor Siemian, another interception, this time returned for a touchdown. Janoris Jenkins made Denver pay for Siemian’s ill-fated pass and returned the pick 43 yards for a score with just 48 seconds left in the first half. Siemian was injured on the play, and backup QB Brock Osweiler entered the game on the Broncos’ next series. 17-3, Giants
Field goal. The Broncos were able to drive all the way to the Giants’ 10-yard line before their drive stalled, and Brandon McManus made a 28-yard field goal to get Denver on the board with 4:21 left in the first half. The key play of the drive was a 40-yard Trevor Siemian pass to Demaryius Thomas. 10-3, Giants
Turnover. Trevor Siemian overthrew a pass intended for Demaryius Thomas, and the ball landed in the arms of Landon Collins, who returned the interception 21 yards to the Giants’ 35-yard line.
The Giants won the coin toss and elected to defer to the second half.
The Broncos took the field for pregame warmups wearing their all-blue uniforms for the first time in 2017. The Giants took the field a few minutes later.
His mobility was quickly on show in Minnesota, with Hundley successful in making a number of throws on the run.
Rodgers’ leadership and composure in the biggest moments, which he showed eight days ago as he led another stunning late game-winning drive to defeat the Cowboys, understandably will be tough for the inexperienced Hundley to replicate.
However, there was reason to be encouraged by the poise Hundley demonstrated against the Vikings, as he showed a willingness to hang in the pocket and the awareness to know when to step up and avoid the pass rush, doing so on his sole touchdown throw to Davante Adams.
