perth_map

Trevor Siemian and backup? If the Broncos keep losing games, it would only make sense for them to see what they have in former first-round pick Paxton Lynch and veteran Brock Osweiler , who is in his second stint with the franchise. Denver's dominant defense is playing even better than the unit that led the Broncos to the Super Bowl 50 title two years ago. Turn it over four times and you're still in the game with a team like Kansas City, that's kind of unbelievable really, " Siemian said. Read More »
