Week 2 of the NFL Preseason saw the Buffalo Bills dominate the opposition. Here are four members of the team who shined in its win over the Denver Broncos

On a beautiful afternoon in Orchard Park, the Buffalo Bills dismantled the Denver Broncos from the opening kick. Albeit preseason action, the Bills looked to be clicking on both sides of the ball and appear primed for the regular season.

From Buffalo’s opening drive, Josh Allen and the first team offense went right down the field in response to a Denver field goal. After completing all three of his pass attempts, Allen capped a six-play, 70-yard drive with a 28-yard dart to Gabe Davis for pay dirt.

Buffalo’s defensive unit also presented a stiff test for Denver’s depth players; holding the Broncos’ offense to just 274 total yards and a modest output of 15 points on the scoreboard.

Collectively, the Bills outclassed the Broncos in every aspect of the game, but these four members of the team stood out among the rest.

Which Buffalo Bills stood out on Saturday against the Denver Broncos?

Case Keenum

After Josh Allen’s remarkable opening touchdown drive, Case Keenum entered the game and picked up right where Allen left off.

Keenum finished the outing completing 16 of his 18 passing attempts for 192 yards and a score. He was consistent in his decision-making and took much better care of the ball as compared to a week ago.

Keenum led three scoring drives and the Bills left nothing to be desired in the first half as the offense capitalized on every possession and kept the punters on ice until later in the game.

Keenum’s performance from a week ago was the subject of criticism. It was also suggested the Bills may be better suited with Matt Barkley backing up the veteran Allen. However, Keenum is one of the more experienced backup quarterbacks in the NFL. And his familiarity at the helm coupled with his performance on Saturday should provide the Bills with a sense of confidence if he is called upon in spot duty.
