At home, for their final game of the season, the Broncos lost to the Kansas City Chiefs 27-24. With the result seemingly meaningless this Sunday saw several new faces on the field as some young guys got ample playing time. For one last time this season we break it all down for you.
Standouts from the game:
Paxton Lynch: C+
Lynch was far from perfect with his two interceptions standing out as extremely costly losing errors. Particularly his second pick in the end zone on a pass behind Isaiah McKenzie was lacking the necessary RPM’s to get through.
That said, Paxton played one of his cleaner games showing more in tune decision making than we’ve seen in the past.
He got going with his feet, showing the type of mobility and playmaking skills on the fly that we’ve been waiting to see in a real game. The best of which was his gutsy 3rd-and-1 run juking a couple different defenders on his way to cross the sticks for the first down.
