Lots of Broncos fans on hand to watch rout of Cardinals

GLENDALE, Ariz. (AP) – There were many Denver fans dressed in orange in the stands in Arizona.

They must have loved watching the Broncos defeat the Cardinals 45-10 on Thursday night. [19659002] "That was amazing," Denver quarterback Case Keenum said later. "It felt like a game at home there by a lot, it was awesome, it was really great."

After four consecutive losses, the Broncos (3-4) took control early, returning two interceptions of Josh Rosen's passes for the first quarter touchdowns. Denver led 21-3 after a quarter and 35-3 in the half, which gave a bit of a win to coach Vance Joseph.

"That's more about our football team, I'm not worried about me," Joseph said. "It's a good victory for our football team, it's been two tough and tough weeks, we had a tough loss on Sunday, we had a short week, so it's very good for our team to win a game."

The Cardinals (1-6) have lost their first four home games for the first time since 1979, almost a decade before the franchise moved from St. Louis to the desert.

"Definitely, a shameful effort tonight," first year coach Steve Wilks said. "Our fans deserve more than that, we have to perform better than that, six catches, three interceptions, it can go on and on, it's unacceptable."

Arizona's offensive coordinator, Mike McCoy, had been considered unstable, but there is no indication that any movement is imminent.

"You are going to ask me about the changes," said Wilks. "It is premature to talk about any change at this time, everyone will be evaluated in all areas."

Here are some things that should be taken into account in the Broncos challenge in the desert:
