The kid continues to amaze.

Rookie running back Phillip Lindsay piled up a career-high 157 yards rushing on a crareer-best 19 carries to help lead the Broncos to a 24-10 win over the Cincinnati Bengals Sunday at Paul Brown Stadium.

Lindsay got the Broncos on the scoreboard with a six-run touchdown run with 1:56 left in the first quarter.

In the third quarter, after Justin Simmons intercepted Bengals quarterback Jeff Driskel to set the Broncos up at their 15 yard line, Lindsay bolted around the left side and raced 65 yards for his second touchdown to put the Broncos up 21-3 with 7:35 remaining in that quarter.

The Broncos forced three more turnovers to give them nine in the last three games, all Denver victories, and they sacked Driskel four times.

Courtland Sutton caught a 30-yard touchdown pass from Case Keenum, who finished 12-of-21 for 151 yards. For the fourth straight game, Keenum did not throw an interception.

The Broncos are now 6-6 and one game out of the final playoff spot in the AFC.
