OC Bill Musgrave won’t have a player the caliber of Oakland’s Derek Carr at his disposal as he prepares a game plan with the stated objective of completing more passes. HC Vance Joseph said Monday the Broncos have not decided on a quarterback for Sunday’s game at Oakland—that decision could come Tuesday—but it could be 2016 first-round draft pick Paxton Lynch, who would be making just his third career start.

A move to Lynch would make sense for a new coordinator coming into his first week of action. Osweiler and Trevor Siemian haven't played well behind a sketchy offensive line so it may also be a struggle for Lynch, too, if he's named the starter.
