Report: Broncos expected to name Trevor Siemian starting QB

Paxton Lynch led three scoring drives in his bid for the starting quarterback job, Denver forced four turnovers in the first half and the Broncos beat the San Francisco 49ers 33-14 on Saturday night.

Joseph did not commit to a starter after the second preseason game.

Siemian and Lynch have each started one preseason game.

Lynch was 9 of 13 and showed good pocket presence by scrambling out of trouble a few times, but managed only 39 yards through the air in less than two quarters.

Siemian won the starting job over Lynch last preseason as well, but the team re-opened the competition this offseason on hopes that Lynch could develop.

Siemian was asked if he had done enough to win the job, and the third-year pro replied: "I think so".

"I'm not sure, once we watch this tape and see where we are with that", Joseph said on KUSA's television broadcast. He's expected to complete 308.0-of-519.4 (59.3 percent) passes for 3,306.0 yards with 18.96 touchdowns and 14.3 interceptions in 2017. "Still, no doubt, I have a long way to go again, but yeah, I think that's it". Lynch is 15-of-22 for 81 yards with zero touchdowns and a passer rating of 74.2. He hasn't thrown an interception. "Our time frame is not important, but getting it right is".

Siemian, who played most of last season with a left (non-throwing) shoulder injury that required surgery, finished 8-6 as a starter in 2016.
