Scouting Report

Week 12 at Oakland Raiders

Will a change in offensive coordinator and starting QB help the Broncos this week? Now that Mike McCoy has been replaced by QB coach Bill Musgrave, it’ll be up to Paxton Lynch and the rest of the team to show they can do better. Lynch injured his shoulder in the preseason and the team brought him back slowly to the playing field. In the three games he played in during his rookie campaign, he completed 59% of his passes for 497 yards, with 2 touchdowns and 1 interception. While Lynch has a strong arm, several of his attempts were under 10 yards last year—which will likely be what we see from him on Sunday. Versus the Raiders at home earlier this season, Trevor Siemian threw for his season-low of 179 yards with 1 touchdown. Oakland allows over 250 passing yards per game, but with the bye weeks over, there has to be a better option than Lynch, especially with him seeing his first action of the season.
