In the Denver Broncos first preseason game of the 2017-2018 season, Northern Colorado alum and free agent pick Kyle Sloter got to show fans what he can do.
On Thursday night, the Broncos travelled to Chicago to take on the Bears. Following rough starts by assumed starter Trevor Siemian and backup Paxton Lynch, Sloter took to the field for the fourth quarter.
Sloter went five for six for 94 yards in the lone quarter he played. Sloter was also the only Bronco to throw a touchdown pass when he connected with rookie wide receiver Isaiah McKenzie for a 47 yarder.
In Saturday’s game against the San Francisco 49ers at Levi’s Stadium, Sloter had another stellar performance with a 100 percent completion rating for 50 yards.
Despite Sloter’s impressive performance in the first two preseason games, coach Vance Joseph said the starting and backup positions still belong to Siemian and Lynch.
