Broncos get Lynch ready to play, in case Siemian can't](http://www.espn.com/blog/denver-broncos/post/_/id/23813/broncos-get-paxton-lynch-ready-to-play-just-in-case-trevor-siemian-cant) (Jeff Legwold, ESPN.com)*
The bottom line, however, is if Siemian can show enough mobility before the week is out -- he did not practice Wednesday -- he will start. Broncos coach Gary Kubiak said Siemian played like "a champ" against the Chiefs, but the 24-year-old passer has been battered, having been sacked 13 times in the last three games combined.*

Even from the outside looking in, Broncos remain unflappable (Andre Simone, BSN Denver)
This group was able to do it last year with their backs against the wall; only time will tell if they can do it all again. One thing's for sure, though, there's no doubt in that locker room that the Broncos can still achieve every goal they've set out for themselves.
