With Week 3 approaching, Denver’s quarterback competition appears headed toward a final decision pretty soon. But whose job will it be?
Paxton Lynch got his turn with the starters on Saturday, leading a touchdown drive to open the game. From there, it was largely unmemorable, going 9 of 13 for 39 yards on the night with Brandon McManus nailing two kicks from 45-plus yards.
Trevor Siemian, the incumbent starter, entered just before halftime and marched Denver down the field, completing passes of four, 10 and 19 yards, with the last going to Jordan Taylor for a touchdown. It sounded like that was enough for coach Vance Joseph.
