ESPN's Dan Graziano reports the Broncos plan to start Paxton Lynch against the Raiders in Week 12. At the very least, they hope he'll do better than Siemian and Osweiler.

After winning 12 or more games in four straight seasons, including two Super Bowl appearances and one championship, Denver failed to reach the postseason in 2016 with a 9-7 record.

The Denver Broncos have stumbled to their first six-game losing streak since 1990 while the team's roster has been housing a first-round quarterback that hasn't yet received an extended audition. With Siemian at the helm, the Broncos nearly upended the Chiefs at home in a close game plagued by turnovers from the quarterback.

The offense has struggled all season, starting with Trevor Siemian at quarterback before he was benched and replaced by Brock Osweiler. Osweiler played even worse in his place and lost all three games he started.

Lynch completed 59 percent of his passes for 497 yards with two touchdowns against one interception in two and a half games a year ago. He showed flashes during training camp this summer, where he competed with Siemian for Denver's starting job, but Lynch never seemed to fully grasp the offensive concepts.

"I feel good", Lynch said of his shoulder on Monday.

Broncos offensive coordinator Mike McCoy played it low-key this past week when asked about Lynch's work in practice.
