Trevor Siemian will start; Paxton Lynch will also play against Raiders

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. --Trevor Siemian will remain the starter for Sunday's game against the Oakland Raiders, but Paxton Lynch will play at some point in the game, Head Coach Gary Kubiak announced Wednesday.

"They're both young players. Obviously one of them is younger than the other -- by about 10 or 11 games -- but I think Trevor deserves the right to go back out there as the starter," Kubiak said. "He's done a lot of good things this year. He's a young player; he needs to keep going."

One of the reasons Kubiak wants to start Siemian is to allow him to "get the Kansas City taste out of his mouth." Siemian struggled against the Chiefs, posting career single-game lows in completion percentage, yardage per attempt and passer rating in last Sunday's 33-10 loss to the Chiefs.

Kubiak didn't reveal what the breakdown of repetitions and playing time for the quarterbacks would be.

"I kind of have it in my mind, but I've got to see how the game goes, too," Kubiak said. "So we'll see."
