Broncos To Start Paxton Lynch In Week 12


He completed 59 percent of his passes in those games for 497 yards, two touchdowns and one interception.

Lynch was the team's first round draft pick in 2016 but has yet to really be given a chance to take over.

Lynch started in two games a year ago, playing in three. Osweiler supplanted Trevor Siemian, who remains above.500 in his 21 Broncos starts. As such the remainder of the Broncos season will be defined by pride and opportunity. The pair combined for eight interceptions, one fumble and two touchdowns on the road. "Just protect the football, have zero turnovers at the end of the game and see where we are". They've continued to sputter under his watch, and their once dominant defense is no longer capable of carrying them. "I'm never going to look over my shoulder". However, many knew he would be a project and it would take a while to develop him, so it is possible that he is starting to show that he can take over as the team's starter.

The fact that Joseph declared Lynch "healthy" means any decision about Lynch now hinges on the second-year quarterback's readiness to handle the playbook in a regular-season game.

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

Wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders added that Lynch, even with his physical gifts, needed to get more familiar with the offense. "He has all of the intangibles".
