Paxton Lynch to be named Broncos starting quarterback

Given the current direction of the team over the last month and a half, there's a chance they'll have a high draft pick and an opportunity to select another QB to take the reins of the franchise moving forward if they don't have confidence in Lynch. 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.

Lynch hasn't played this season, and Sunday was the first time he had been in uniform for a game since he suffered a right shoulder injury in the Broncos' Aug. 26 preseason game against the Green Bay Packers. However, Lynch has been deemed healthy after throwing progressively better over the past three weeks.

The Broncos have gone through the wringer this season. He also had one interception and two fumbles. They've continued to sputter under his watch, and their once dominant defense is no longer capable of carrying them. In the small sample size, Lynch threw for 497 yards, two touchdowns, and one interception. I'm just going to show up to the building every single day and be myself, work as hard as I possibly can and everything will take care of itself.

The move comes after the team fired offensive coordinator Mike McCoy on Monday morning and lost their sixth consecutive game on Sunday.

"Paxton has a big-time arm and a big time talent", Sanders said.
