Lynch demoted, Kelly promoted in Denver

Preseason broadcast information Vikings at Broncos

It was Kelly who looked like a backup-caliber quarterback, but considering how much the Broncos initially invested in Lynch, it wasn't clear if they'd be willing to demote him so early in the preseason.

After Saturday's preseason opener, head coach Vance Joseph said Lynch had an "up and down" performance, that "he made some plays and he didn't make some".

"Chad's played well. He played well in the scrimmage". Lynch finished 6-of-11 for 24 yards and an interception, and after one particularly bad series, the fans at Mile High let him have it.

Lynch completed only 6 of 11 passes for 24 yards and an interception in a 42-28 loss at Broncos Stadium at Mile High, with fans booing him off the field.

"It's really more about what Chad's done, honestly".

Prior to Monday, Lynch had been the Broncos back-up behind Case Keenum while Kelly had been the third team quarterback.

"The thing I was probably most impressed with was the way we came off the ball with our offensive line".

Iran's problems 'internal, not just sanctions'
The 2015 agreement placed tight controls on Tehran's nuclear program in exchange for the lifting of worldwide sanctions. The protests over the cost of living have often turned into anti-government rallies.

"That's what we live by with our players: If you're playing well and you earn it, you push up and you get it. He's earned that right". Both of his scores came on connections with running back Roc Thomas, a 13-yard strike in the first quarter and the 78-yard play just before halftime.

After the game, Broncos coach Vance Joseph was non-committal about shaking up the depth chart, but he decided to make a change by Monday.

Case Keenum completed only 1 of 4 passes for the Broncos. Obviously, me being in my second year, I don't know anything.

"Just got to work hard, " Kelly said with a grin when asked if he's ready to be one play away on Sundays.

You can't deliver a pass any better than that.

The bigger question is whether the Broncos stay put with Swag Kelly at No. 2.

The Broncos will begin joint practices with the Chicago Bears on Wednesday and Thursday.
