Recent Game Summaries

2017 Week 17 vs KC (21 / 31 / 254 / 2 / 2 pass, 3 / 13 / 0 rush)

Lynch posted a decent statline but struggled with slow reads and late throws against the Chiefs backups in week 17. Lynch's first touchdown pass was a halfback screen that was all De'Angelo Henderson. Henderson caught the ball behind the line of scrimmage and followed his blockers perfectly, breaking a couple of arm tackles and outrunning several defenders up the sideline for a 29 yard score. Lynch was intercepted at the end of the first half, making a bad throw in the general direction of Jordan Taylor. He also coughed up a fumble in the 3rd quarter after holding a pass too long and taking a sack from behind. The Chiefs recovered the ball and and returned it for a touchdown. Lynch was intercepted a second time in the end zone in the 4th quarter when he delivered a ball late to Isaiah McKenzie. Lynch found Demaryius Thomas in the back of the end zone for a game-tying touchdown with three minutes left in the game. Unfortunately the Broncos defense could not hold on as Kansas City drove down to kick the game-tying field goal.

2017 Week 12 vs OAK (9 / 14 / 41 / 0 / 1 pass, 2 / 20 / 0 rush)

Lynch's first outing was a rough one, as he failed to lead any scoring drives and threw one interception in two and a half quarters of play. Denver's offensive line struggled mightily to protect Lynch, but backup QB Siemian played less than two quarters behind the same offensive line and managed to produce two touchdowns. Lynch showed off his wheels on a 1st quarter bootleg, turning the corner for a 10 yard gain. Unfortunately for the Broncos offense, this would be Denver's longest rushing play of the day. Lynch dropped a beautiful pass over the shoulder of Devontae Booker early in the 2nd quarter after the back took a wheel route up the sideline towards the Oakland end zone. Booker was determined to be down by contact on the 1 yard line after a diving catch. Lynch threw an interception two plays later on a play-action bootleg. Tight end Green blocked a moment and then released into the flat as Lynch faked a handoff and rolled out left. Lynch's pass was ill-advised as Green was well covered, and sure enough it deflected off two defenders before landing in the arms of a third defender laying on his back in the end zone. Lynch had the ball slapped from his hand on a 3rd quarter pass attempt but managed to pick the ball back up and advance it a couple of steps before being dropped for another sack. Lynch's abysmal outing ended in the 3rd quarter as he exited with what has since been diagnosed as a high-ankle sprain. Trevor Siemian was pressed back into service and managed two touchdowns and no turnovers in less than two full quarters.
