Broncos QB Case Keenum has Super Bowl expectations for Denver
Denver Broncos quarterback Case Keenum is coming off a stellar 2017 campaign. However, its disappointing ending has left some unfinished business for the veteran.
Keenum knows full well the reason why Denver signed him was to help get them back into playoff contention. However, according to Zack Kelberman of 247 Sports, Keenum has his eyes set on finishing the job from last year:
“It was a lot of things, but it left a taste in my mouth to know how to get there and what it takes to get to the next one, the big one. And, man, it left a fire in my belly. I want to get there.”
Keenum made the most of his opportunity with the Minnesota Vikings. He enjoyed his best year yet after throwing for 3,547 yards, 22 touchdowns and seven interceptions while completing 67.6 percent of his passes. He was even part of one of the most historic plays in playoff history which was famously dubbed the “Minneapolis Miracle.”
Unfortunately, his luck ran out after Minnesota was blown out by the Philadelphia Eagles in the NFC Championship Game. That said, Keenum is hoping to lead the Broncos past the AFC Championship and into a Super Bowl.
It is encouraging to see Keenum has high expectations for himself and the team this season. Despite their struggles last season, Denver largely suffered due to their lackluster play under center. Keenum provides some much-needed stability for this Broncos’ offense. Furthermore, he has the luxury of throwing the ball to two bonafide wideouts much like he did in Minnesota.
