What to watch for: Rams-Broncos

Print

It's the moment we've all been waiting for -- Week 3 of the NFL preseason. We'll see more established stars and potential starters than any other week of the preseason. Around The NFL's Conor Orr dissects what you can expect to see from the 16 games this weekend.

Here's what to what to watch for ...

RAMS at BRONCOS (9 p.m.)

» Trevor Siemian gets the start under less-than-ideal circumstances. The presumed Week 1 starter missed practice this week with shoulder soreness, but has been gifted a golden opportunity to knock Mark Sanchez clear out of the competition.

» Speaking of Mark Sanchez, there is still no word if he'll be next in line behind Siemian, according to ESPN.com. What does this mean? If rookie Paxton Lynch takes the field after the starters come out, we could be waiting to see Sanchez on the cut list come roster trim down. While we would suggest Denver keep all three quarterbacks, the trade for Sanchez was conditional and Denver could get their pick back if they decide not to keep the former Eagles and Jets quarterback.

» Jared Goff hasn't driven the coaching staff wild so far in the preseason, to the point where some are wondering if he's currently beating out Sean Mannion for the No. 2 job. Goff is currently 57th among preseason quarterbacks in yards (120) and is still below 60 percent completion rate. Does it matter? Probably not. The Rams seemed hell bent on making Goff earn this and Case Keenum has played pretty well. This is Goff's last realistic chance to make a play for the Week 1 job.
