Broncos Early 2016-2017 Odds: Rookie Paxton Lynch Insists He Can Win Starting QB Job

The Denver Broncos early 2016-2017 odds had the reigning Super Bowl champs (minus now retired Peyton Manning) with 15-1 odds of repeating the championship and +195 odds (just shy of 2-1) of winning the AFC West division, behind Kansas City at +190 odds.

The Broncos are currently holding quarterback auditions.  Not only is Peyton out, backup QB Brock Osweiler has gone over to the Houston Texans.

Enter first-round draft pick Paxton Lynch, who insists he is ready to take on the starting position.  For now, Mark Sanchez is slated to start in Week 1.

"I definitely think I have an opportunity to better myself and put myself up in the position to play right away or sooner than I had thought," Lynch said Tuesday.

"I knew Mark and Trevor were going to be ahead of me because of their experience — Trevor with his experience in the offense and Mark with his experience in the league — and me being a rookie.

"This is the first time that I've seen a playbook like that, so I knew it was going to be tough and I knew I was going to be behind," he said. "The biggest thing for me is just staying confident in myself, keep my head up, keep pushing through and keep grinding. It'll come to you eventually.

"From a competition standpoint, you're not just going to say, `Yeah, I'll take the back seat.' It's my job as a rookie to push those guys that are ahead of me however I can."

Lynch said getting all the snaps the past two days was difficult from a conditioning standpoint but "mentally getting those reps is really important."

Additionally the Broncos are priced at -130 to win OVER 9 regular season games.
