DENVER (AP) Kirk Cousins was perfect in his first game for Minnesota on Saturday night, completing all four of his passes, including a 1-yard touchdown strike to Stefon Diggs in the Vikings' 42-28 exhibition victory over the Denver Broncos. 

Case Keenum wasn't nearly as sharp in his Denver debut. 

He completed just 1 of 4 passes for 5 yards spanning two drives that went nowhere, lamenting after getting taken out that he wanted another possession. 

Cousins was the crown jewel of this year's free-agent class of quarterbacks, signing an $84 million, three-year deal in Minneapolis. That meant Keenum was out two months after leading the Vikings to the NFC championship, and he signed a $36 million, two-year deal with Denver. 

After Cousins' single series - one in which he didn't have to face Von Miller - Trevor Siemian led Minnesota on three scoring drives, most notably a screen pass to Roc Thomas that beat the blitz for a 78-yard score.
