The Broncos are expected to put Lynch in the shotgun more than they would Trevor Siemian and the Broncos want to give Lynch an efficient run game today.

Something Rams higher-ups have said for a while: An extension for Jeff Fisher is basically a token of appreciation, representative of the stability Stan Kroenke values. If the Rams don't win, they can search for a new coach regardless. But as I've said before: Next year -- full year back in LA, full year of Jared Goff -- is when the pressure is really on Fisher to get it right. Not what fans want to hear, but it's their reality.

NFL 

Alden Gonzalez ESPN Staff Writer 

Expectation all along was that Jeff Fisher would return next year, just surprised this became official -- or, it appears, will be soon -- before season's end. Fisher's extension, expected to be for one year with an option for 2018, confirms once and for all that this Rams brass does not view him nearly as harshly as the fan base does. Stan Kroenke values stability, is able to look past his win-loss record because he likes how he represents the organization. But this is yet another move that will not go over well with their new fan base in Los Angeles.
