After Noah Fant snuck by the Vikings defense for a big gain early, the Broncos got a field goal from Brandon McManus to open the scoring.

Following a 47-yard field goal by Brandon McManus, the Broncos took a 10-0 lead with 4:43 left in the first quarter on a 3-yard touchdown pass from Brandon Allen to Troy Fumagalli, capping off a 90-yard drive in six plays.
