Case Keenum

Case Keenum, the quarterback for the Bills, said his first preseason game was “uncharacteristic” of him. A week later, Keenum was back to normal as the Buffalo Bills blew out the Denver Broncos by a score of 42-15.

Keenum completed 16 of 18 passes for 192 yards and a score on Saturday at Highmark Stadium. An enormous improvement over the previous game, in which he committed three turnovers in a victory over the Indianapolis Colts.

The Bills didn’t face the Broncos’ starting defense, and Keenum is now slated to serve as the team’s backup quarterback behind Josh Allen. Nonetheless, the difference was clearly visible.

A 10-year veteran, he paid special attention to ball security during the week between the two preseason games. For Coach Sean McDermott, the process of Keenum evaluating his own play and making adjustments began almost instantly.

McDermott remarked, “You could just tell” when he saw him the day after last week’s game. Rather than an overreaction, it was a really professional response on his part. It wasn’t like this before, but this week he seemed laser-focused on his goals.

Keenum’s opportunity to show he can bounce back was swift. Allen only got only one drive’s worth of action (six plays), but he finished it off by throwing a 28-yard touchdown pass to wide receiver Gabe Davis. There were 2 minutes and 52 seconds left in the first quarter when Keenum entered the game on the Bills’ second possession.

McDermott explained that he didn’t want to put Keenum at any unnecessary risk by playing Allen and that he also wanted to give Keenum more time with the starting lineup, including taking snaps from center  Mitch Morse.

Keenum’s stint as the team’s starting quarterback was quite short. The Bills substituted their offensive line after four plays, ending the first quarter, and his time with the team. From left to right, Bobby Hart, Cody Ford, Greg Mancz, Greg Van Roten, and Spencer Brown walked in.

Career

Keenum has agreed to a three-year, $18 million contract with the Cleveland Browns. He was Baker Mayfield’s backup at quarterback. After Mayfield left in the third quarter with a worsened rib injury, he entered the game for the first time this season in Week 6. Over the course of three offensive possessions, he completed 5 of 10 passes for 46 yards and threw for a loss of 38-7 to the Pittsburgh Steelers.

Due to Mayfield’s shoulder injury, the Browns decided to start Keenum in Week 7 on October 20, 2021, against the Denver Broncos. This game marked his first start of the year and his first game since Week 17.
