No. 6- Paxton Lynch’s first NFL touchdown pass
When the Broncos drafted Paxton Lynch with their first pick (26th Overall) they were looking to add a new face to the franchise.
However, Siemian won the job in camp and never truly relinquished it.
But Siemian did miss 2.5 games due to injury and Broncos Country got to see what Paxton could do.
He looked solid against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in relief of Siemian. But perhaps the biggest moment of his career to date was his first NFL touchdown.
On a 2nd and 3 from the Tampa Bay five yard line, Lynch executed a perfectly played quarterback play-action bootleg and found Sanders all alone for the touchdown.
There are some promising things to come for him. Hopefully learning for a year under the playbook helped a bit.
No. 5 Devontae Booker’s Screen Reception TD
In the final game of the 2016 season, the Denver Broncos were going up against the Oakland Raiders.
I mentioned at No. 9 about Justin Forsett’s long touchdown run. But another big play with Devontae Booker occurred in this game too.
Facing a 3rd and 18, the Broncos decided to go with a screen pass to the running back.
You could immediately hear the groans that Broncos Country let out.
It was the second best screen pass executed by the Denver Broncos in the season.
Note that I said second… moving on.
