DENVER, CO (WMC) -

Former Memphis Tiger Paxton Lynch will get his first NFL start on Sunday.

The news was first reported by Denver reporter Mike Klis, and backed up by several others.

Lynch filled in last week when incumbent starter Trevor Siemian went down with an injury. Lynch completed 14 of his 24 passes for 170 yards and his first career touchdown.

The rookie was a first round pick for Denver in 2016 and will get the nod against the 3-1 Atlanta Falcons in Denver.
