Brock Osweiler will start again for Broncos

The word after Sunday’s loss was that the Broncos would give Brock Osweiler another start when they face the Patriots in Denver next weekend and nothing changed on Monday.

Broncos head coach Vance Joseph announced that Osweiler will start his second game of the year and second game in a row next Sunday night. Osweiler was 19-of-38 for 208 yards, a touchdown and two interceptions in a 51-23 loss to the Eagles.

“I think Brock’s earned it. Deserves one more week to prove [he can do the job],” Joseph said, via Mike Klis of KUSA.

The Broncos aren’t exactly overflowing with other options. Trevor Siemian got seven starts before Joseph opted to pull the plug last week on the heels of a three-interception outing against the Chiefs and Paxton Lynch has only been practicing for a short while after a long stretch on the shelf with a right shoulder injury.

If Lynch should start doing more at practice and Osweiler turn in another outing like he had against Philadelphia, the Broncos may decide to see what the 2016 first-round pick has to offer the offense. For now, though, it’s another spin for Osweiler against a team he beat in his first stint as the Broncos starter in 2015.

  1. He beat the pats in 2015, who’s to say he don’t it again?

    Uh, “he” also lost to the Pats twice in 2016.

  2. Brock had his moment in the sun with the Broncos in 7 games as a starter in relieve for Peyton Manning, but his sun has set and revealed that he is just a ba up that should never have to play. The Broncos don’t have an NFL starting QB on their roster, Lynch will also prove o be a bust.

  3. I love the Broncos, but under Vance Joseph, I can see this team letting the Patriots hang 60+ on them.

    FIRE JOSEPH BEFORE IT’S TOO LATE*

    *too late = a scandal on the scale of Spygate 2.0

  4. Elway is trying to create 2015 Deja Vu all over again, for this one game. Pats coming off a bye week are generally out of sync, and on the road in altitude versus a normally good defense, means it will likely be a closer than expected game. It’s not like the Patriots are packing a great defense themselves. They are last in the league in most if not all categories, even though they have shown improvement. They historically don’t play well there, so I wouldn’t bet the house.

    I just checked with Vegas. They’re willing to accept all the money you’d like to wager on the Broncos.

    Pats are the number 16 D right now.

  7. Osweiler helped lead the Broncos to a super bowl. He didn’t do it by himself, by any stretch, but he was part of a super bowl winning team. Paxton Lynch is the future of the Broncos. Everyone thought Jared Goff was a bust last year. Now he’s in the MVP running. Nobody was calling Carson Wentz an MVP candidate in the pre-season. Look at him now. We all like to think we’re QB experts. The truth is, most of us only know what happened yesterday. We have no idea about next week. Half the time their own coaches don’t know how good they’re going to be until they do it. I don’t think O’Brien was planning to go with Watson this year.

  8. They’re going with Brock against the Pats because Elway knows the Pats are gonna embarrass Denver on national tv. The schedule after the Pats gets a lot softer and the starter weeks 11-17 will be Paxton Lynch. Lynch isn’t great, but with Denver’s awful line, he’s easily the most athletic of the Denver QBs and can run when the pocket breaks down.

  9. Lynch has had 2 years to show improvement but it doesn’t look like that’s happening. Elway should ha e bit the bullet and went after A J McCarran and kept lunch as the back up if he has all this confidence I. Him. I am afraid that it’s too late now for the offense to help the defense. Now we are going to be down for years!

  10. I know its a QB driven league and all that jazz… but the Defense allowed 51 points. Why are people worried about Osweiler?

  11. BO flat out stinks.

    clever, very clever. some of these mud turkeys come alive against my Pats though. maybe it’s just the fact that everyone on the roster steps it up against the Gold Standard.
