welcome back. today, littleton, some pretty inspiring athletes joined together to compete in the state summer classic. olympics. there were competitions in boccie, cycling, and tennis. we talked to one of the athletes who said this means so much to her and her child. >> it brings more confidence to the athletes. they get out here with a group of friends, and just do the best they can. that's what we tell our kids. just go out there and have a good time. it's all about the fun, it's not about the medals, and the ribbons.
i'm denver 7 meteorologist stacey donaldson, i've decided this is like where's waldo. where is the cloud here in sterling, colorado? the vera wireless camera is looking out across no cover here around denver. looking toward the mountains. and over the city, so it's been a nice, warm day, and very dry. it will continue to be warm into tomorrow. highs right around 90 degrees. it will be sunny though, as we hang onto the dry weather. then another cool down coming our way. and that will bring some rainfall as well. so really, today, the only places seeing rain are in the southwestern quadrant of our state. mostly from telluride, to
we've seen light to moderate rainfall. a few scattered showers to the southwest of denver, but until the city, we really have just seen a few high clouds showing up. in the mountains, just to our southwest, a few scattered showers, and really nothing to speak of here to the south. light, moderate rainfall, nothing severe at all. 90degrees our high today. yesterday, we only hit 76 for a high. so it really turned around, once our winds shifted. 87degrees is normal. those highs, after being the mid- to upper 0s. so it has slightly cooled. 83 for lakewood. 86 for denver, and 87 for bennett. as we go through the evening, we'll have temperatures dropping into the 60s. but i do think we'll have overnight lows in the upper 50s, officially at dia. tomorrow, highs around 90 degrees, with partly cloudy skies for the afternoon. so bus stop time tomorrow for some kids. 66degrees, as you head to
but not for too long. our future cast into tomorrow morning, nice and quiet throughout the entire front range. into the afternoon, scattered showers, down into southwestern colorado. the higher elevations here into aspen, montrose, this will be 5:30 p.m. i still don't think we'll see any rain here in denver, but that will change by the time we get to tuesday and wednesday. 59 degrees overnight. clear skies, mild conditions. and tomorrow, right around 90. it will be sunny and dry. a pretty warm day for us dia, up to erie, 92 in longmont, aad platteville. 70s from grand lake into leadville. but leadville actually will be 63 degrees we'll have 70s for the mountains. 80s and 90s for the eastern plains. as we go knew the next few days, the highs around 90 degrees. then the cool down occurs.
into the 70s, and they stay there all the way through the end of the week, and into the weekend. so nice, cool weather on the way for us. at least mild in the afternoons. going into the next, you know, few days. tomorrow, 90 degrees, and some kids starting school, so it will be a warm one for you. >> the big question, when are the broncos going to make a quarterback? wow, and that is a great question. if you're looking for the answer, you didn't get it last night. no one won the starting job, to the regular season.
immediately led the broncos on a 10 play scoring drive. to pay dirt. this looked great. siemian, 10 of his first 11 off to a grrat start. hold on. he finished 0 for his last 3, completing this pass, to eric reed of the 49ers who went 42 yards in the pick 6. so much for winning that starting job. that is one pass trevor would like to have back. >> there is a lot to think about. you've got to be able back. i'm not the first guy that's thrown an interception. i had to go out there the next drive. just have to have a short memory. >> at the end of the day, the job is to protect the ball. that's the most important thing. obviously, coming out of tonight, it was not good enough. nice segway to mark sanchez who entered in the 2nd quarter. his first drive also ended in points, via a field goal.
points. but the d got the ball bacc. sanchez promptly gave it away. another fumble. his third turnover this preseason. that's mark's achilles heel. he knows that is not going to win you the starting job. >> going into my 8th year, i know better. i know i've got to get the ball out, so i can't put pressure on the o-line like that. i know i'm in a tough spot, and coach wants to see what i do. there's no excuse for that. you can't put the team in situation. it's poor play. put some throws in some great spots. and two plays. two really bad plays took away from a great performance, and potentially winning the job. >> now there was one big bright spot.
unanswered touchdowns. lynch nearly rallied the troops all the way back. another strike made it a 7 point game. the broncos ended up losing, but paxton's play got them back into play. and more importantly, got him back into the quarterback play. >> he's always been in the mix. everybody is in competition to play. >> i've always belied no matter what the situation was, like i said from day 1. i'm confident that i have an opportunity to make the best of this opportunity and you know, that's what i've been doing. but, those guys have been playing well too in front of me, so we're going to keep going, and i'' going to keep doing what i'm doing. >> the broncos head into that final dress rehearsal. saturday against the rams playing quarterback by committee. that would be fine in june.
the numbers count. siemian, sanchez, and lynch campaigned for 2 touchdowns, 2 interceptions, 2 fumbles, and were sacked 6 times. you're not going to win many games in this league with that stat line. we talked with the pulse of team, wanting to find outtif this was becoming an issue inside the locker room. >> no. we don't care. we're going to let y'all deal with that, and say that we don't have a starter, and we don't know what we do. at the end going to put 11 orange jerseys out there, and 1 is going to say quarterback. >> collectively on defense, do you say, we're going to take care of our end, you guys do yours. >> that's pretty much what we do. i'll sure they'll figure out who's going to be the quarterback when the time comes. >> air force day at coors field. the rockies turned on the
nolan arenado, up and out. the rout was on. later, tony wolters. it was 5-0 before the cubs recorded two outs. next batter, jorge de la rosa. 7 runs in the 1st, against the best club in baseball. 3 bottom 4. the 32nd of his year, now the national league leader. the rockies take the cubbies. bristol's night race, postponed by rain. they got it in today. furniture row unveiling a new paint scheme. wh do you think? all the way up to third place, when bad luck struck. kyle lohse got loose. kyle larsen left martin with nowhere to go. there goes that new paint job. the race just wrapped up. kevin harvick, your winner. got to show you this again. outlaws rallying from a 7 goal
