Paxton Lynch is excited for the opportunity to lead the Denver Broncos in their 2017 season finale against Kansas City.
The second-year quarterback will make just his fourth regular season start against the AFC West champions, who are expected to rest a number of their starters after they were locked in as the fourth seed in the AFC playoffs.
Lynch is 1-2 in regular season games since making his first start against Atlanta in week five in 2016, and has been hampered by injuries this season.
Although he helped the Broncos defeat Tampa Bay when he came in for the injured Siemian in week four last season, his only win was on the road against Jacksonville in week 13 when the Broncos struggled to a 20-10 win, with Lynch going 12-24 for 104 yards no touchdowns and no interceptions.
Lynch’s only other start came in the week 12 defeat in Oakland last month when he went 9-14 for 41 yards, zero touchdowns and an interception with the Broncos trailing 21-0 before suffering the high ankle sprain in the third quarter that has ruled him out since.
