Trevor Siemian will get the start
When veteran quarterback Mark Sanchez arrived via a trade with the Philadelphia Eagles, the starting job was pretty much his to lose. After the Broncos drafted Paxton Lynch in the first round, he must have felt even more ready to lead the Orange and Blue on the field.
But it is the 23 year old Trevor Siemian who will get the start this weekend. Through two preseason games, Siemian has gone 17/26 for 163 yards, zero touchdowns and one interception. By contrast, Sanchez has three turnovers in a little over two quarters of play.
“They are all going to play an equal amount,” Head Coach Gary Kubiak said. “I have to sit here and think about how much I’m going to play the starters, so that’ll have a lot to do with how I play them. I’m going to see how much I’m going to play our starters in the game. I’ll make that decision later in the week.”
