Confirmed for Week 12 start

Confirmed for Week 12 start

All of the pressure surrounding a postseason appearance has been lifted following poor play from Trevor Siemian and Brock Osweiler.

In a move that wasn't all that surprising, the Broncos have made a decision to go with Paxton Lynch as their starting quarterback for their Week 12 matchup against the Oakland Raiders.

The Broncos have struggled with their quarterback play this year.

Lynch started in two games a year ago, playing in three.

In four games, Osweiler has put up just 3 TD's and 4 INT's as he continues to struggle with his accuracy. Derek Carr completed 28 of his 49 pass attempts for 237 yards, a touchdown and an interception, while Marshawn Lynch led Oakland's ground attack with 11 catches for 67 yards.

Why are the Broncos switching to Lynch? Unfortunately, the Broncos have seen none of that, with Lynch only throwing 83 National Football League passes, hitting on 59 percent of them.

The comparative three-game spans seem to point towards Lynch being a favorable start for the Broncos, and he should be, since the season's relevancy is practically finished. "While I was in the training room watching from the inside out, it was just a big emphasis for me being on my iPad the whole time since I couldn't be out there getting the reps". A projected month-long hiatus became a three-month recovery.

The second-year quarterback from Memphis went 1-1 as a starter in 2016 with one touchdown and one interception.

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

"Obviously, if you ask me if I can play, I'm going to say yes, " Lynch said.

"It's been tough", Lynch said last week.
