Top play

On his final pass of practice, QB Teddy Bridgewater connected on a touchdown pass of at least 50 yards to WR Jerry Jeudy, who dodged CB Brashaud Breeland after the catch.

Thumbs up

TE/FB Andrew Beck. Mostly quiet during the first 11 practices, Beck had several catches during 11-on-11 work.

WR DeVontres Dukes. There probably isn’t room on the 53-man roster for the rookie from South Florida, but he has made a big impression, including a climb-the-ladder touchdown catch during red zone 7-on-7.

Vikings facility. Think a practice facility on steroids. “To come here and see it person; I’ve been seeing the pictures on Instagram and things like that, but to see it in person, I’m like, ‘Wow, this is unbelievable.’ They’ve got six fields,” QB Teddy Bridgewater said.

Thumbs down

Offensive operation. Missed snaps. False start penalties. Push-offs in 1-on-1 drills by the receivers. An overall sloppy practice for the Broncos.

QB Drew Lock. For the second time in camp, Lock’s final throw of practice was an interception. He threw deep middle and S Xavier Woods collected the takeaway after the ball was deflected into the air.

Odds and ends

*The Broncos and Vikings worked on two fields (offense vs. defense) and for more than two hours. Coach Vic Fangio handled the field featuring the Broncos defense. “It was excellent work,” he said. “They did some things we hadn’t seen yet so it was a good learning experience for us defensively. We had some of those newer guys who just got here the last few days and they obviously have a lot to learn.”

*S Justin Simmons said the Broncos defense got “great” work against the Vikings. “It was competitive and nice to get out and go up against a different scheme and a different colored jersey,” he said. “Anytime you can go against a quarterback like Kirk Cousins, it’s always great work for the defense, especially for the safeties. I thought we did a lot of things really well and there are a lot of things we can improve on communication-wise and executive-wise and takeaways.”

*After his press conference, Fangio went straight to the team hotel to watch the offense. Memo to Vic: It wasn’t great. Asked what he’ll watch for, he said: “Just the operation. Who’s playing good and who isn’t, who’s doing their job and who isn’t, who’s getting beat and who isn’t, who’s playing well and who isn’t. It’s an individual evaluation and a unit evaluation.”

*QB Drew Lock on the offense: “There is a lot to take from (Wednesday). I’m anxiously awaiting to get back (to the hotel) and watch the film. There are some good things we all did and some bad things. That’s the benefit of coming to these things. There were some wild looks we saw that we’ll learn from. That’s why you come here.”

*QB Teddy Bridgewater, a Vikings first-round pick in 2014, noticed the purple No. 5 jerseys in the stands. “It didn’t get me emotional, but it was cool to see small children in No. 5 jerseys,” he said.

*Fangio said Thursday’s practice will be “very similar” to Wednesday’s session, which means a heavy emphasis on 7-on-7 and 11-on-11.

*Eye-popping defensive play of the day: During a 1-on-1, Vikings WR Ihmir Smith-Marsette tried a whole bunch of moves, but Broncos CB Pat Surtain II didn’t bite on any, plastering Smith-Marsette and breaking up the pass at the goal line.

*Calvin Anderson was first-up at RT for the Broncos, ILB Justin Strnad continues to play for the injured Josey Jewell and Lock took the initial 11-on-11 snap.

*Lock’s first completion in 11-on-11 was to WR Jerry Jeudy against veteran CB Patrick Peterson. On Lock’s second series, he was nearly intercepted by MLB Eric Kendricks, who jumped to deflect Lock’s pass.

*During a hurry-up drive, Lock went quick completion to WR KJ Hamler, clock-stopping spike, C Lloyd Cushenberry penalty (everybody went, but he didn’t snap) and a drop by WR Courtland Sutton.

*In 7-on-7 red zone, Bridgewater threw touchdowns to Hamler and WR DeVontres Dukes. Hamler also caught a touchdown by QB Brett Rypien.

*Lock started an 11-on-11 period with five snaps and no throws — rush, rush, scramble, rush and rush. Bridgewater’s second drive of the period started with a pass batted down and then completions to Hamler (diving catch) and TE Noah Fant.

*Practice finished with 11-on-11/move the ball. Bridgewater had completions to Sutton, Fant and the touchdown to WR Jerry Jeudy. Lock was intercepted.

Thursday’s schedule
