‘It was excellent work’: Broncos coach says practice with Vikings was good learning experience

Local News

EAGAN, Minn. (KDVR) — The Denver Broncos took training camp on the road before their preseason opener against the Minnesota Vikings.

“It was excellent work,” said head coach Vic Fangio. “They did some things that we hadn’t seen yet, so good learning experience for us defensively.”

The two teams worked out Wednesday afternoon on a bright, sunny Minnesota day. On the field, a combined 180 players competed against a different opponent for the first time this camp.

“You get to go against new people,” said Fangio after practice. “Even if they were running the exact same plays our offense runs, it’s still different because guys block different, they run different. It’s good to go against different people. It does perk it up a little bit, there’s no doubt about it.”

The two teams will practice again on Thursday before an off day on Friday. The preseason opener kickoff is 2:00 p.m. on Saturday.
