Horse Tracks: Trevor Siemian leads the NFL in touchdown passes

New, comments

Good morning Broncos Country!

After Sunday’s week two NFL games concluded, Trevor Siemian led the NFL in touchdown passes. Not Tom Brady, not Aaron Rodgers, not Drew Brees, but our very own Trevor Siemian.

As of Monday morning(Matthew Stafford may pass him as I type this) Trevor Siemian leads the NFL with six touchdown passes. He also has one rushing touchdown bumping up his total touchdown total to 7. That’s pretty damn good after two regular season games.

This sort of play earned praise from Head Coach Vance Joseph who said that Siemian “played excellent once again”.

“I thought Trevor played excellent, once again. Very, very, very efficient with the football. He put us in good plays all night. Again, outside of the one interception, which was more of a unit issue than a Trevor issue, he played well. If he plays that solid for us, we’ll be hard to beat down the stretch.”

He’s right.

If Siemian continues to average 3.5 total touchdowns per game with this defense and revamped run game, look out. The Broncos will be around all season and will make some noise during the postseason.

Now it is very early in the season and it remains to be seen if this production will continue once defenses get more tape on Siemian in Mike McCoy’s offense, but so far so good. The offensive line looks better, the run game looks better and Siemian is playing his off, so hopefully, this play continues.

Go Broncos!
