Despite the incredibly long wait to see his first National Football League action, he wasted no time turning heads during the Denver Broncos' first preseason game on Saturday night as he posted a 104.7 passer rating to go along with two touchdowns.
Kelly celebrated his promotion by sticking around after practice Monday and throwing passes to tight end Jake Butt and receiver River Cracraft for more than 20 minutes. Just like uncle Jim Kelly advised after Chad almost single-handedly rallied the Broncos against the Vikings: Stay humble.
The Vikings still have a way to go in determining what the roster will look like on opening day less than a month.
Kelly was the No. 3 quarterback who threw two touchdown passes in the Broncos' live scrimmage two weeks ago, while Lynch struggled with the No. 2 offense. "If you play well and you earn it, you push up and you get it".
"It's more about what Chad has done".

Before Markle's televised marriage, Ragland spent time meeting Prince Charles, Duchess Camilla, Prince William and Duchess Kate. Meghan Markle might have claimed that she didn't "know much about" Prince Harry before she was set up with him on a blind date.
Cousins, who signed a three-year, $84 million contract with the Vikings in March, completed all four of his passes for 42 yards, including a 1-yard score to Stefon Diggs in the first quarter. He moved the ball for us on Saturday night. "He's earned that right". Zimmer says he plans on shuffling guys around and trying a bunch of different combinations.
Case Keenum remains the undisputed starting quarterback.
After the game, Broncos coach Vance Joseph was non-committal about shaking up the depth chart, but he decided to make a change by Monday. We never got into a rhythm, never got that first first down and got going. He's played with poise, he's played with confidence. They don't know everything.
"You've just got to work hard".
"Obviously I'm upset", Lynch told reporters after the game. "And when your time's called, you'd better be able to step up and go".
