After beginning the season with a perfect 4-0 record, the Broncos suffered their first loss of the season against the red hot Atlanta Falcons last week. With starting quarterback Trevor Siemian out of the lineup with a shoulder injury, rookie Paxton Lynch made the first start of his career. Lynch went 23 of 35 for 223 yards, a touchdown and an interception. He was sacked six times. It's unclear yet as to whether Siemian will return on Thursday night.
