SANTA CLARA, Calif. | Vance Joseph isn’t yet ready to declare a winner in the race to be Denver’s starting quarterback between Paxton Lynch and Trevor Siemian.
If he is, the Broncos’ head coach is keeping it to himself. Lynch led three scoring drives in his bid for the job while Siemian, who started the preseason opener a week ago, came off the bench to throw a touchdown pass as the Broncos beat the San Francisco 49ers 33-14 on Saturday night.


DENVER | Jesus Aguilar went to the plate as a pinch-hitter, ready for a steady diet of breaking balls from Greg Holland. Colorado’s closer obliged, and the big right-hander made him pay with a game-turning drive. Aguilar connected for a go-ahead home run with two outs in the ninth inning and the Milwaukee Brewers beat the Rockies 6-3 Saturday night for their fifth win in six games.


SANTA CLARA, Calif. | Paxton Lynch now gets his chance to seize the starting quarterback job for the Denver Broncos. Lynch has gotten the bulk of the work with the first-team offense this week and will start Saturday’s exhibition game against the San Francisco 49ers as the Broncos look for either Lynch or last year’s starter Trevor Siemian to emerge in the competition.


SANTA CLARA, Calif. | Von Miller had some pretty good flashbacks when he arrived at Levi’s Stadium for the first time since winning the Super Bowl MVP here just over 18 months ago. The stakes were far lower for a joint practice between his Denver Broncos and the San Francisco 49ers than they were for that Super Bowl win over Cam Newton and Carolina in February 2016 but that didn’t stop the memories.
