Broncos’ Drew Lock set to start Week 17 game at Chargers with Teddy Bridgewater again, report says


Drew Lock is set to start for the Denver Broncos in Week 17 against the Los Angeles Chargers as Teddy Bridgewater continues to recover from his concussion, by Ian Rapoport of NFL Media. Bridgewater was rushed off the field and rushed to hospital after receiving a frightening blow in the Broncos’ 15-10 loss to the Cincinnati Bengals two weeks ago, and is reportedly not healthy enough to come back right away.

Lock started in Sunday’s 17-13 loss to the Las Vegas Raiders and completed 15 of 22 passes for 153 yards. He missed a few shots he should have completed, but was also disappointed with his receivers on several occasions. Tight end Albert Okwuegbunam suffered a costly fall on third base as Lock tried to orchestrate a winning practice in the fourth quarter. The Broncos recorded a minimum of 158 total attacking yards in the loss, the least they have won in a game against the Raiders since 1978.

It’s an opportunity for Lock to show what he’s capable of as a starting quarterback. Product Mizzou went 4-1 after being inserted into the starting lineup at the end of his rookie season, but struggled in 2020, having just 4-9 as a starter.

The Broncos 7-8 own the hypothetical No. 13 seed in the AFC, which is the last place among all AFC qualifying teams for the playoffs. Not only will they need to beat the Chargers on Sunday and the Kansas City Chiefs next week, but they’ll need outside help to advance to the playoffs.
