Lynch will nearly certainly preside over a game plan that is more streamlined than what the Broncos have done in previous weeks and that will likely support Lynch with a bigger commitment to the run game Sunday against the Oakland Raiders.

On Tuesday, the announcement came down that the Denver Broncos wanted to make a change a QB, so Paxton Lynch will start Sunday against the Oakland Raiders as the Broncos try to snap a six-game losing streak.

Last year, Lynch's first National Football League action came in a Week Four road game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Hope is a term that isn't thrown around often within the Broncos' organization, particularly at the quarterback position.

Denver drafted Lynch in the first round of the 2016 draft. A projected month-long hiatus became a three-month recovery. All of the pressure surrounding a postseason appearance has been lifted following poor play from Trevor Siemian and Brock Osweiler.

Sunday against the rival Raiders will mark the third start of Lynch's career; he appeared in three games, starting two, last season as Siemian nursed injuries. The Broncos are known to dominate the victory between the two however their current turnover margin of -16 is one of the main reasons why they're now 3-7 and why quarterback Trevor Siemian and offensive coordinator Mike McCoy were replaced by Osweiler and Bill Musgrave respectively. The pair combined for eight interceptions, one fumble and two touchdowns on the road.

Why are the Broncos switching to Lynch? I would have said that right when I got hurt.

"I feel good", Lynch said of his shoulder on Monday.
