Is Trevor Siemian the favorite to get the Denver Broncos’ starting QB job? That may be the case.
The ex-Northwestern QB will start another preseason game, this time in Week 3 against the Los Angeles Rams at 9 p.m. on Saturday.

Siemian started Denver’s second preseason game, a 31-24 loss to San Francisco. Siemian led a TD drive on the first possession but later tossed an INT. He finished 10-for-14 for 75 yards and didn’t get sacked.
Mark Sanchez, who started the first game, was 10-for-17 for 120 yards, fumbled twice and got sacked three times against the 49ers.
Rookie Paxton Lynch, the Broncos’ first-round pick out of Memphis, may be the long-term answer. But he’s getting mostly third-string opportunities right now. Still, he was 15-for-26 for 113, two TDs and an interception. He was also sacked three times.
