Packers vs Broncos: Important Takeaways for Green Bay

Denver Broncos wide receiver Demaryius Thomas has been ruled out for the remainder of Saturday night's game against the Green Bay Packers with a groin injury. Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers was in the game long enough to attempt just five passes, but Von Miller still sacked him once. The offensive line must get on the same page as false starts cannot be tolerated during the regular season.

The altercation began when Broncos and Packers players were shoving after a play. A tip of the cap to Denver's social media team for this one. He showed power in both pass protection as well as run blocking, including one play where he kept former Utah State linebacker Kyler Fackrell from pressuring quarterback Trevor Siemian on a play late in the second quarter.

Rookie watch: Rookie safety Jamal Carter, an undrafted player, could make things interesting when the Broncos go through their roster decisions in the secondary.

The Packers don't play in Denver very often, only every 8 years as the regular season schedule goes.

Ravens 13, Bills 9: Winless Buffalo sent home defensive tackle Marcell Dareus, lost quarterback Tyrod Taylor to injury and made far too many mistakes against host Baltimore, which remained undefeated in the preseason.

Aches and pains: The Broncos had some injuries that will need some attention in the coming days. Kerr did not return after suffering a knee injury in the first half, while Lynch left early in the third quarter with a right shoulder injury.

The Broncos won their first two preseason games and will wrap up the exhibition slate against the Arizona Cardinals on Thursday.

If you wanted to see the defensive starters, then there you weren't disappointed. Since 2000, the Denver are 11-6 in second-to-last preseason matchups. Charles, who entered on the first series, had four carries for 27 yards and two catches for 15 yards.

During a close back-and-forth (at least into the middle of the third quarter) between the Broncos and the Packers, recently signed OT Menelik Watson did the unthinkable.

Watson said the two would celebrate Saturday night before Stewart left the U.S.to join her basketball team overseas.
