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.
