Broncos Turning to Paxton Lynch as Starting QB This Week

Lynch returned to practice three weeks ago and served as the No. 2 quarterback in practice last week. But the loss could set the wheels in motion for Lynch, the Broncos' first-round pick in 2016. Lynch went 1-1 as a starter last season and was beaten out by Siemian in training camp. The Broncos are known to dominate the victory between the two however their current turnover margin of -16 is one of the main reasons why they're now 3-7 and why quarterback Trevor Siemian and offensive coordinator Mike McCoy were replaced by Osweiler and Bill Musgrave respectively. With Siemian at the helm, the Broncos nearly upended the Chiefs at home in a close game plagued by turnovers from the quarterback. The pair combined for eight interceptions, one fumble and two touchdowns on the road.

The Denver Broncos will be heading to the Oakland Coliseum to take on their very own Oakland Raiders this Sunday evening at 4:25 PM EST. They've continued to sputter under his watch, and their once dominant defense is no longer capable of carrying them. Lynch hasn't been fully healthy.

Lynch said this past week: "I feel like mentally I've taken a step forward".

The Broncos, who have lost six straight games, fired offensive coordinator Mike McCoy on Monday and promoted Bill Musgrave to replace him in the position. "We increased his workload a little bit this week, but he's done a nice job the past couple days". Lynch was a star in Memphis, showing off athleticism and a big arm. "It's all about just going at it and getting more and more comfortable with the playbook, learning, growing as a player and becoming a pro".
