For the time being, the guys vying to be the starting quarterback for the Denver Broncos in 2020 are Drew Lock and Teddy Bridgewater.
There are many trains of thought when looking at who could win the competition. Some believe that Lock should get one more chance to show he can be the guy while others see Bridgewater as the much safer option, an option that Vic Fangio may be inclined to go to given his tenuous status as the team’s head coach.
All indications point to a legitimate 50-50 competition between Lock and Bridgewater and due to his experience in the league, the former first-round pick Bridgewater may have the inside track to win the job.
Of course, many fans are still holding onto hope that George Paton can swing a trade to bring in either Aaron Rodgers or Deshaun Watson.
Experience is just one of the advantages that Bridgewater has over Lock, but just looking at last season, where did each guy rank in key statistical categories. That is what we will be looking at here.
Bridgewater played in 15 games for the Carolina Panthers, his lone season with the team. Lock did miss some games with injuries last season, forcing the Broncos to turn to both Jeff Driskel and Brett Rypien.
Let’s take a look at how the 2020 season went for each quarterback.
