Paxton Lynch selected Broncos' starting QB vs. Oakland

Your turn, kid: the Denver Broncos have reportedly informed second-year quarterback Paxton Lynch he'll start this week.

Confirming an earlier report, Lynch will start Sunday's game against the Raiders, Nicki Jhabvala of The Denver Post reports.

The Broncos, having started Osweiler against the Philadelphia Eagles and New England Patriots, will also send Lynch out against a Raiders defense that has struggled. He lost the starting quarterback job to Siemian past year and an injury to his throwing shoulder has kept him out since August. As such the remainder of the Broncos season will be defined by pride and opportunity.

The move comes after the team fired offensive coordinator Mike McCoy on Monday morning and lost their sixth consecutive game on Sunday. It will be the third start of his career after the 2016 26th overall pick got the nod twice as a rookie, going 49-of-83 for 497 yards, two touchdowns, and one interception. A projected month-long hiatus became a three-month recovery. He only completed 53 percent of his passes, with three touchdowns and four interceptions, good enough for a 65.7 quarterback rating.

With their chances at making the postseason extremely slim, the Broncos really had no choice but to make the switch to Lynch to see if the 23-year-old has any hope at being the franchise's long-term answer at the most important position on the field. Lynch went 1-1 as a starter last season and was beaten out by Siemian in training camp. Devontae Booker ran for 44 yards on 14 carries and C.J. Anderson added 37 yards and a touchdown on 13 carries, while Demaryius Thomas led the team with 5 catches for 64 yards and a touchdown.
