Paxton Lynch: Pass For 310 and Rush For a TD
Trevor Siemian exceeds expectations of a first year player, but the Denver Broncos get a look at the future in Paxton Lynch. Siemian performed the best all season in the most critical game of the year. After a disappointing start against the Atlanta Falcons, expect the Broncos to display a different playbook today against the Jaguars. Gary Kubiak should install more rollouts and designed QB runs with Lynch to make him comfortable.
Furthermore, Lynch can elude defenders better in mobility and will sling it through the air when given the chance. Today, he will throw for over 300 yards and rush for a score leading the Broncos to a great bounce back victory. The defense of the Jaguars can be easily exposed at linebacker and the secondary. Lynch designed runs or read option plays keep players honest to respect the run and his legs. This is where the golden arm of Lynch can expose the secondary of the Jaguars. One area to avoid is the Jalen Ramsey side of the field.
The Broncos coaching staff must show trust in the rookie to mold the offense to Lynch’s talents. Kubiak did not shy away from molding the offense to meet Lynch’s skill set in the Tampa Bay Buccaneers game. Lynch worked from the shotgun mostly that and do not look for that to change.
