Broncos to Start Brett Rypien Thursday - 9th Starter Since Manning Retired

A stat you don't want to lead the league in... Most starting quarterbacks in a short period of time. Sadly, the Denver Broncos not only lead that category since Peyton Manning retired in 2015, but they are adding to their lead this Thursday night.

Brett Rypien, an undrafted second-year player from Boise State, will become the 9th. Broncos coach Vic Fangio named Rypien as his starting quarterback for their game Thursday night against the New York Jets at MetLife Stadium in New Jersey.

Rypien replaces Jeff Driskel, who started Sunday against Tampa Bay, but was pulled in the fourth quarter with the Broncos trailing 28-10. Fangio said Driskel could also play in the game against the Jets.

In case you were wondering, here are the Broncos’ 9 starting quarterbacks, in order, since Manning retired: Trevor Siemian, Paxton Lynch, Brock Osweiler, Case Keenum, Joe Flacco, Brandon Allen, Lock, Driskel and Rypien.
