Broncos coach Vance Joseph: Trevor Siemian is our quarterback

Vance Joseph isn't yet ready to declare a victor in the race to be Denver's starting quarterback between Paxton Lynch and Trevor Siemian.

Joseph's announcement carries the weight of an anvil, especially in light of his statement last week that he wants the announcement of a starter at any position to carry a sense of permanence with it.

According to Mike Kliss of 9News in Denver, the Broncos will keep two quarterbacks (Siemian and Lynch) on their 53-man roster.

For the Broncos' running backs, well, they're finding spots - on the ground and in the air - to create explosive plays. Meanwhile, his primary competition Paxton Lynch had a productive outing going 9-of-13 for 39 passing yards along with racking up 27 rushing yards.

Toni Kroos made the game safe in the 62nd minuted, but there was still time for Sergio Ramos to get himself sent off in injury time.

Kyle Sloter: 7-for-7, 50 yards, 0 TD, 0 INT, 0 sacks.

Joseph told reporters that the Broncos are all in agreement with the decision. "You know, he controlled the huddle, so I was pleased with Trevor", Joseph said. Siemian came off the bench and completed 8/11 passes for 93 yards and a touchdown. "I'm not the coach but I think so". He was 8-6 as the team's starter, posting a quarterback rating of 84.6. Lynch is 15-of-22 for 81 yards with zero touchdowns and a passer rating of 74.2. He threw for 3,401 yards to go with 18 touchdowns and 10 interceptions.

"He's a guy with rare talent, and with time, he can be a good quarterback", Joseph said.
