Paxton Lynch will make his second start at quarterback for the Broncos today. He started Week 5 -- the Broncos loss to the Atlanta Falcons -- and finished 23-of-35 for 223 yards with a touchdown and an interception. 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.
