Broncos Sticking With Brock Osweiler As Starting QB Against Patriots

Adjust Comment Print

Osweiler was named the team's starting quarterback last week after several turnovers by Trevor Siemian.

Quarterback Carson Wentz and his Philly teammates lashed the Broncos by land and through the air in a 51-23 beat down, a game that left Denver reeling at 3-5 and veteran cornerback Chris Harris to wonder if the season could sink any lower.

He did engineer four scoring drives - a touchdown and three field goals.

The prince was the son of Muqrin bin Abdulaziz Al Saud - who was the crown prince of Saudi Arabia from January to April in 2015. Bloomberg quoted a senior Saudi official as saying that 11 princes and 38 current or former senior officials were arrested.

According to Klis, Broncos head coach Vance Joseph waited to watch film before deciding between Osweiler and Siemian this week. Osweiler also has experience in beating the Patriots at eventually-to-be-renamed Sports Authority Field at Mile High. In that contest, Osweiler went 23-42 for 270 passing yards with one touchdown pass and one interception. Upsetting New England would be the first step toward reaching the postseason.

Any hope that Osweiler's promotion to the starting role would be enough of a catalyst to jump-start a dead offense faded quickly. By then, Peyton Manning had returned as Broncos quarterback and he led Denver to a 20-18 win in the conference championship, before guiding them past Carolina for the Super Bowl 50 title.
