A preseason win for Denver

The Broncos 2017 first preseason kicked off Thursday night in Chicago and while many fans were eager to see how Denverís quarterbacks would fare, their performances left people with more questions than answers. Trevor Siemian who only played the first quarter and part of the second didnít impress and eventually was sacked in his first series against the Bears defense.

Paxton Lynch came in with 7:41 to play in the second and somehow managed to be less impressive than Trevor Siemian. While both Coach Vance Joseph and John Elway have made it clear that Siemian and Lynch are Denverís top two choices, some have taken a liking to a potential third choice in Kyle Sloter, Denverís third string quarterback in Thursday nightís game. Sloter was 5 of 6 for 94 yards helping place Denver on top for the win and winning the hearts of many Broncosí fans in the process.

The other young rookie who shined Thursday night and will get credit for Denverís win is running back DeíAngelo Henderson. On third and 22, the Denver Broncos chose to hand the ball off to Henderson whose speed was apparent in that play when he broke through a hole right up the middle and trotted to the end-zone nearly untouched. Coach Joseph still has plans to play Jamaal Charles before the end of the pre-season in order to determine roster spots. However, it is nice to see that thereís a healthy competition brewing at running-back level. The Broncos are scheduled to play the San Francisco 49ers on Saturday, August 19 at Levi Stadium in Santa Clara at 8 p.m. MST.

In other sports the Colorado Rapids recorded their second tie over the past three away games after taking on FC Dallas Saturday night at Toyota Stadium in Frisco, TX. Colorado came out firing in the first 15 minutes of the game but momentum slowly changed in favor of FC Dallas who ended up outshooting the Rapids. Colorado is scheduled to play DC United at Dickís Sporting Goods Park on Saturday August 19, at 7 p.m.
