Dec. 31, 2017 6:08 PM PT7:08 PM MT8:08 PM CT9:08 PM ET2:08 GMT10:08 7:08 PM MST9:08 PM EST8:08 PM CT6:08 UAE (+1)21:08 ETNaN:� - Paxton Lynch was 21 of 31 for 254 yards and threw two touchdown passes Sunday in the Denver Broncos' 27-24 loss to the Kansas City Chiefs. He threw two interceptions, fumbled once and was sacked five times. Lynch added 13 rushing yards on three carries.
Analysis: Lynch threw an interception late in the first half and was sacked three times in a five-snap span in the third quarter, losing the ball on one of them. This was not a good performance at all by Lynch, who has four TDs and four interceptions in five career games. His future in Denver remains very unclear.

Analysis: With Lynch dealing with an ankle injury, Brock Osweiler started in Week 16 against the Redskins. The Broncos would still like to see what they have in Lynch.
Nov. 26, 2017 2:47 PM PT3:47 PM MT4:47 PM CT5:47 PM ET22:47 GMT6:47 3:47 PM MST5:47 PM EST4:47 PM CT2:47 UAE (+1)17:47 ETNaN:� - Paxton Lynch was 9 of 14 for 41 yards and didn't throw a touchdown pass before leaving Sunday's 21-14 loss to the Raiders in the third quarter with an ankle injury. He threw one interception, didn't fumble and was sacked four times.
Analysis: Lynch's first start of the season was a disaster even before he got hurt, as the Broncos didn't manage a point with him under center and never got anything going against a defense ranked last in the NFL in pass efficiency. Now he's going to miss at least two weeks.
Nov. 21, 2017 12:20 PM PT1:20 PM MT2:20 PM CT3:20 PM ET20:20 GMT4:20 1:20 PM MST3:20 PM EST2:20 PM CT0:20 UAE (+1)15:20 ETNaN:� - According to an ESPN report, Lynch will start for the Broncos in Week 12.
Analysis: The writing had been on the wall after offensive coordinator Mike McCoy was fired. The Broncos are looking ahead and may want to groom Lynch with an eye toward next season.

Analysis: General manager John Elway moved up in the 2016 draft to select Lynch, who was beaten out by Siemian two summers in a row. Siemian lost his starting job to Osweiler after committing too many turnovers.
Aug. 26, 2017 7:54 PM PT8:54 PM MT9:54 PM CT10:54 PM ET2:54 GMT10:54 7:54 PM MST9:54 PM EST9:54 PM CT6:54 UAE (+1)22:54 ETNaN:� - A person with knowledge of the diagnosis says Broncos backup quarterback Paxton Lynch will miss several weeks with a sprained right shoulder.
Analysis: KUSA-TV in Denver first reported the severity of the injury, which Lynch sustained in his one series against Green Bay on Saturday night.
Aug. 20, 2017 8:38 AM PT9:38 AM MT10:38 AM CT11:38 AM ET15:38 GMT23:38 8:38 AM MST10:38 AM EST10:38 AM CT19:38 UAE11:38 ETNaN:� - Lynch was 9 of 13 and showed good pocket presence by scrambling out of trouble a few times, but managed only 39 yards through the air in less than two quarters in the Broncos' preseason win over the 49ers.
Analysis: It's still tough to say if Lynch or Trevor Siemian will be the Broncos' starter. Neither has done much to distinguish himself.
Aug. 11, 2017 7:22 AM PT8:22 AM MT9:22 AM CT10:22 AM ET14:22 GMT22:22 7:22 AM MST9:22 AM EST9:22 AM CT18:22 UAE10:22 ETNaN:� - Denver's Trevor Siemian did nothing to hurt his standing as the apparent leader for the starting quarterback job, while Lynch did little to close any ground.
Analysis: Lynch came on early in the second quarter and was 6 for 9 for 42 yards. He is scheduled to start next week.
