Broncos head coach Gary Kubiak announced to the team that Trevor Siemian would be the starting quarterback when Denver plays the Carolina Panthers in Week 1 of the regular season. Kubiak’s decision comes as no surprise as Siemian has started the team’s last two preseason games.

Siemian was the Broncos’ seventh round draft pick in the 2015 NFL Draft. In 44 games at Northwestern University, Siemian racked up 5,931 yards and a 116.6 passer rating. In 3 preseason games with the Broncos this year, Siemian has a 70.3 passer rating, completing 27 of his 43 passes for 285 yards with a touchdown and two interceptions.

Mark Sanchez was the favorite to win the job, after the Broncos traded a conditional seventh round pick to the Eagles for his contract. Sanchez is likely on the roster bubble, as the team can save a seventh round draft pick and $3 million if he is cut before the first game of the season.
