PHOENIX (CBS4) – The Denver Broncos’ offense and defense both got off to a great start in their final preseason game against the Arizona Cardinals Thursday night.
Longtime Broncos running back Ronnie Hillman could be fighting with former Colorado State star Kapri Bibbs for a roster spot. It’s not clear what coach Gary Kubiak plans to do at that position, but on the first drive Bibbs had three great carries for 20 yards. Hillman remained on the sideline.
But it was a Paxton Lynch to Jordan “Sunshine” Taylor 57-yard touchdown reception that stood out.
The defense made some good plays as well. Rookie linebacker Zaire Anderson was able to recover a Cardinals fumble to set up a Brandon McManus field goal.
