Why are the Broncos switching to Lynch? They are now 3-7, haven't won since October 1 and have their longest losing streak since 1990, thanks in large part to a struggling offense that has averaged just 14.1 points in their past six losses. The Broncos are known to dominate the victory between the two however their current turnover margin of -16 is one of the main reasons why they're now 3-7 and why quarterback Trevor Siemian and offensive coordinator Mike McCoy were replaced by Osweiler and Bill Musgrave respectively. Quarterback play has been a liability for the Broncos all season. He also had one interception and two fumbles. The Broncos need clarity at the position, and on Lynch specifically, as they plan for the offseason. However, many knew he would be a project and it would take a while to develop him, so it is possible that he is starting to show that he can take over as the team's starter. "Just protect the football, have zero turnovers at the end of the game and see where we are". Lynch hasn't been fully healthy. He was battling with Siemian for the starting job this summer but injured his shoulder in the preseason. He averaged 5.99 yards per attempt and amassed two touchdowns and an interception to go with a 1-1 record. Denver fired offensive coordinator Mike McCoy this week as well. "He has all of the intangibles".
