Broncos Name Brock Osweiler Starting Quarterback vs. Eagles

  • Broncos stay quiet as NFL trade deadline passes

The Denver Broncos have benched quarterback Trevor Siemian ahead of Sunday's Week 9 contest against the Eagles on Sunday afternoon at Lincoln Financial Field, and Brock Osweiler will get the nod.

Broncos rookie tight-end Jake Butt returned to the practice field; Emmanuel Sanders and Todd Davis also practiced for the Broncos.

Coming in to make your first start of the season against the 7-1 Eagles may be hard, but Osweiler has handled more hard environments and greater pressure. "So when you watch your starting quarterback make 20 or 25 fantastic throws, awesome checks and three horrific interceptions, that's when it becomes an issue because, in your heart, you know he can play better".

A few bleary-eyed hours studying game film early Tuesday morning wasn't enough time for Joseph to make that decision.

Osweiler started seven games for the Broncos in 2015, helping guide the team to a 5-2 mark filling in for the injured Peyton Manning. The Browns released him in the summer and he quickly rejoined the Broncos, who needed a backup after Paxton Lynch sprained his throwing shoulder in the preseason. Instead, Osweiler bolted to Houston in free agency for $37 million in guarantees and Siemian won the Broncos job instead.




The last time Brock Osweiler started with the Denver Broncos, they went on to win the Super Bowl.

That was when Osweiler signed back with the Broncos.

His first opportunity will come against arguably the best team in the National Football League, the Philadelphia Eagles.

"It's my job to do what's best for the football team", Joseph said Tuesday. "When you've lost three games in a row and you've had the turnovers like we've had them. that's not good". And for all the struggles Osweiler had a year ago as a hired gun for the Houston Texans, he posted an 8-6 record in the regular season, then played well in defeating the Oakland Raiders in a first-round playoff game.
