With the NFL pre-season finally about to start on Thursday night, one of the biggest questions has been answered.

The current Super Bowl champions, the Denver Broncos have a big question to answer as they prepare for life without Peyton Manning.

New starter in Denver

After moving up in the first round of the draft to draft rookie quarterback Paxton Lynch, everyone has been wondering who will start at quarterback for Denver next year?

It has been a three horse race all summer with Mark Sanchez, Trevor Siemian and Lynch all preparing to battle it out.

Well the Broncos have now seemingly made their decision but naming former New York Jets and Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Sanchez as their starter.

The announcement made by the team on Tuesday doesn't necessarily mean that Denver will be starting week one of the regular season with Sanchez under centre.

Sanchez has been named the starter for their first pre-season game against the Chicago Bears on Thursday, but he will only play the first quarter.

Siemian will take over for the second quarter while Lynch will be granted the whole second half of their first warm up match.

Broncos fans could be forgiven for wondering just what this all means for their team but it seems that general manager John Elway is preparing to give the 26th pick in the draft as many reps as possible in pre-season.

The odds are certainly stacked against Denver this season with teams like the Pittsburgh Steelers and the Indianapolis Colts having renewed hope for the new season.

The New England Patriots are as strong as ever - even without quarterback Tom Brady for the first four games and the Oakland Raiders and Kansas City Chiefs look ready to challenge Denver's dominance in the AFC West.
