After an mediocre performance against the Chicago Bears, quarterback Paxton Lynch will be looking to bounce back for the Denver Broncos as they head to San Francisco to take on the 49ers in the second week of action-packed 2017 NFL preseason. Lynch is making his preseason debut as starter, and will play for for a quarter to two while Trevor Siemian will run with the second unit and showcase his talent for roughly the same number of snaps as the former. This was a massive week in majority for Lynch. The Broncos had a couple of joint practice sessions against the 49eNinersrs and put together a quite marvelous week. Lynch won on both practices which included what likely could have been his best practice all offseason long.
This dress rehearsal may very well be the exhibition contest that will ultimately determine whether or not Paxton Lynch or Trevor Siemian will get the start the 2017 NFL regular season opener against the Los Angeles Chargers. Siemian had the start against the Chicago Bears last week and played like his standard self and only came away with only 3 offensive points. So now Lynch has a the once in a lifetime opportunity to prove the Broncos and outdo what Siemian did in the first week.
