Von Miller took over the game in the Broncos' 27-24 win over the Seahawks in Week 1 of the 2018 National Football League season.

So with the game on the line Sunday, Keenum went about the business of cleaning up the mess he helped to make.

Following the interception, Keenum hit Courtland Sutton over the middle for a quick 20-yard gain on first down.

And yes, Broncos Stadium exploded for the first time an undrafted rookie scored a receiving touchdown in the season opener. As a reminder of how much turnovers can affect the game, the Seahawks were being outgained by 100 yards when Marshall hauled in the touchdown to tie it.

In his first regular-season start with the Broncos, new quarterback Case Keenum did just that.

Seahawks receiver Doug Baldwin will miss the rest of the team's game against the Broncos on Sunday with a knee injury, the team announced.

Justin Simmons also gets a nod for his leaping interception of Wilson in the third quarter.

Before he passed for 3,547 yards and 22 touchdowns while leading the Minnesota Vikings to the NFC Championship Game last season, Keenum had been waived three times in his career and had been benched by two different teams. It would set up a 53-yard field goal for Brandon McManus giving the Broncos a 20-17 lead.

When the Seahawks selected Will Dissly in the fourth round of this year's draft, one of the first things general manager John Schneider noted was that the Seahawks considered him the best blocking tight end in the draft. The Broncos put together a seven-play drive for a touchdown - Keenum was 4-for-4 on the drive, including a 4-yard scoring pass to Thomas. The call was initially ruled incomplete but overturned to a touchdown.

It gave the Broncos the 27-24 lead and it was enough to win it.
