Siemian was relegated to the coaching booth high above the field in Jacksonville a week after injuring his foot in the overtime loss at home to the Kansas City Chiefs.

Denver kept their head above water against the Jaguars without their starting quarterback, but did not excel, escaping with a 20-10 win. In his second start of the year, rookie quarterback Paxton Lynch did nothing to sink the Broncos, but his 50 percent completion rate and 104 yards failed to provide the spark in the offense many had expected.
Siemian is returning to captain the offense at just the right time. The Broncos sit at 8-4, good for the sixth seed in the AFC playoffs. The last quarter of the season features a minefield of quality AFC teams with a combined 36-14 record. Now is the time for the Broncos to hit their stride.
At the time of the foot injury, Siemian was arguably playing the best football of his career, pro or otherwise. In a valiant effort against the Chiefs, he tossed three touchdowns with 368 yards and no turnovers. It was inarguably his best performance since throwing four touchdowns to beat the Cincinnati Bengals in his first career road start.
This season, Siemian has thrown 15 touchdowns to just seven interceptions. He will look to improve on his 7-3 record tomorrow in Tennessee.
