Broncos Name Brock Osweiler Starting QB, Likely To Face Patriots Week 10

vance joseph

Vance Joseph stopped short of naming Brock Osweiler the starter for the rest of the season, but the Broncos coach admits as long as "Brock plays well, he plays next week".

Siemian, who has won the job in back-to-back training camp battles, threw three interceptions in Monday night's 29-19 loss to the Kansas City Chiefs as the Broncos lost their third straight game.

Osweiler came to Denver after being let go by the Cleveland Browns, and said at the time of his signing with the Broncos that he told his agent to get him to the Broncos no matter what it took. The team visits the NFC East-leading Philadelphia Eagles (7-1) on Sunday.

If the Broncos had brought in someone with a different skill set - going out and signing Colin Kaepernick, for instance - then maybe Pederson would have altered his plan.

While the Eagles have faced just two teams in the league's top 15 in scoring defense this season - Carolina at No. 5 and the Los Angeles Chargers at No. 8 - the Broncos will have to pick up the pace significantly to keep up with a team that has outscored its opponents 47-9 in the first quarter this season.

Suspect sought after shooting at University of Utah
That death is being investigated as a homicide and the Boutains are suspects, the Golden Police Department said in a statement. A woman showed up on the U campus and said she had been assaulted by her husband while they were camping up Red Butte Canyon.

"It's my job to do what's best for the football team", Joseph said. QB Trevor Siemian, the normal starter, has been largely ineffective this year, throwing as many interceptions through seven games this year as he did all of last year (10).

According to Mike Klis, who covers the #Denver Broncos for 9News, the team has made a change at quarterback. "Losing three games in a row and having five turnovers, anything is possible". But obviously early in the week it does give you a chance to go back and watch some tape and just kind of get a feel for him.

Osweiler's work during that stretch helped the Broncos earn the No. 1 seed for their postseason run to Super Bowl 50.

Plus, Osweiler and Siemian aren't that differently in terms of talent and the way they play the game. In your heart, you know he can play better because those three balls he threw, you just can't throw. Guys are playing hard.
