Denver Broncos to Start Paxton Lynch In Week 12

Denver Broncos will bench Brock Osweiler, start 2016 first-round pick Paxton Lynch at QB (report)

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

Head coach Vance Joseph didn't like the way his quarterbacks were playing.

Lynch would start two games last season while Trevor Siemian was injured.

The Broncos decided to make some wholesale changes on offense following their sixth consecutive loss in Week 11 to the Bengals, firing offensive coordinator Mike McCoy on Monday and elevating Bill Musgrave to interim duties and swapping out Brock Osweiler for Lynch at quarterback. Lynch was a star in Memphis, showing off athleticism and a big arm.

The Broncos had limited opportunities to push the ball down the field against the Jaguars' coverages.

The second-year quarterback from Memphis went 1-1 as a starter in 2016 with one touchdown and one interception. Lynch had just three completions longer than 10 yards.




The Raiders are ranked 26th in overall defense (allowing 367 yards per game). They also stand 9-2-1 ATS in their last 12 meetings with the Raiders and 5-1 in their last 6 meetings when in Oakland.

Hope is a term that isn't thrown around often within the Broncos' organization, particularly at the quarterback position.

Lynch was asked last week if he believed he was ready, physically and from a study standpoint, to be the starter.

I know Denver has had the bulk of the success ATS in this matchup, but what have the Broncos done to show any of us that they're capable of hanging around with anybody right now?

In a season full of accusations of quitting, not caring and just being flat out soft, Anderson's postgame demeanor should serve as a reminder to all; you don't care more than they do.
