ESPN's Jeff Legwold suggests that Trevor Siemian -- who is slated to start Saturday's preseason game against the Rams -- has a leg up at this time on both
It's unclear whether Sanchez or Lynch will enter Saturday's game after Siemian, though coach Gary Kubiak said Monday that they all are "going to play an equal amount." In any case, where Sanchez was once the favorite to hold things down at QB for Denver until Lynch (drafted 26th overall in April) was ready to take over, it now looks as though Siemian will need to falter this weekend in order to not claim the team's top job at the position.

Trevor Siemian will start the Broncos' third preseason game against the Rams, Siemian (shoulder) will get the start in the Broncos' third preseason game against the Rams, Jeff Legwold of ESPN.com reports.
The news is a blow to Sanchez, the team's presumed starter entering camp, as the third preseason game is often when starters are featured the most. Head coach Gary Kubiak has said that he plans to announce the team's starter next week - making Saturday the final audition. Sanchez will get his chance to bounce back as all three Denver quarterbacks are expected to split time evenly during the game. Sanchez and Siemian have each led Denver to an early touchdown drive this preseason, but Sanchez has struggled with turnovers, committing three to Siemian's one.
Sanchez completed 10 of 17 passes for 120 yards in Saturday's preseason game against the 49ers, but he also took three sacks and lost two fumbles.
As expected, Trevor Siemian got the starting nod, after Sanchez started Denver's first preseason game. There was no clear winner Saturday night, as Sanchez lost a pair of fumbles and Siemian threw an ugly pick-six. Paxton Lynch wasn't much better, completing 15 of 26 passes for 113 yards, with two touchdowns and an interception. This battle could continue through the end of the preseason, and the winner will likely have a short leash.
Sanchez completed 10 of 13 passes for 99 yards, with a touchdown and an interception, in Thursday's preseason opener against the Bears.
As planned, Sanchez played the first quarter, with Trevor Siemian taking over for the second quarter. Sanchez got off to a strong start, completing a 32-yard touchdown to Demaryius Thomas while absorbing a big hit, but the veteran QB then threw a bad interception into traffic on the following drive. Siemian avoided big mistakes and led a pair of field goal drives, but he only completed seven of 12 passes for 88 yards. Neither quarterback gained any separation in the battle, which seemingly works in Sanchez's favor.
