CHICAGO (CBS4) – The third string quarterback for the Denver Broncos led the team to victory Thursday night.

Kyle Sloter threw for 94 yards on six pass attempts, five of which were completed, one for a 47-yard touchdown, without throwing an interception.

His passer rating was a stellar 158.3, well above and beyond what either of the two vying for the starting QB spot showed.

Combined, Trevor Siemian and Paxton Lynch threw for 93 yards on 16 pass attempts. Neither threw a touchdown. And neither led another drive that got the Broncos a score.

Instead, there were a lot of three-and-outs.

So, should Sloter get a shot at being the starting quarterback for the Broncos?

Following Thursday night’s 24-17 come-from-behind victory against the Bears, Broncos head coach Vance Joseph said no.

Instead, Joseph said after the game that “it’s an ongoing battle” between Lynch and Siemian as to who will be the starter.

Neither helped nor hurt their chances of earning the position.

  1. James Regan says:

    Coach appeared clueless with his answers regarding Sloter. Foolish to dismiss Sloter like that and the fans noticed. Last thing a rookie head coach needs is to make fans wonder about his judgement after the first preseason game. The kid looked very poised and is a better leader than the two guys the coach favors. If the Broncos don’t sign him they will regret it as any number of other clubs would love this young man. Also, the competition coach mentions is between two quarterbacks who would not start on nearly any other team in the NFL. Coach sounded pedestrian after the Chicago game and seems to have no willingness to make a gamble.
