Paxton Lynch gets chance to win Broncos QB job

SANTA CLARA, Calif. (AP) Paxton Lynch now gets his chance to seize the starting quarterback job for the Denver Broncos.

Lynch has gotten the bulk of the work with the first-team offense this week and will start Saturday's exhibition game against the San Francisco 49ers as the Broncos look for either Lynch or last year's starter Trevor Siemian to emerge in the competition.

"We'd like the decision made by itself," Broncos GM John Elway said Thursday. "We want one of them to take the reins and take over. That would be the ideal situation. We'll get through this game and see what happens."
