Report: Broncos Name Brock Osweiler Starting Quarterback vs. Eagles

4 stats to know as Philadelphia Eagles, Denver Broncos gear up for Week 9 meeting

Brock Osweiler has supplanted Trevor Siemian as the Denver Broncos' starting quarterback, two people familiar with the decision told The Associated Press. They are below.500 for the first time since 2012.

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

After Siemian threw for 198 yards, one touchdown and three interceptions against Kansas City, Joseph didn't rule out potentially making a quarterback change, according to's Jeff Legwold.

The Broncos are 3-4 and on a three-game losing streak heading into the game against the Eagles.

Osweiler was originally the third-string quarterback but was thrust into the starting role after backup Paxton Lynch went out with a shoulder injury and starter Siemian was benched.

The Broncos have yet to officially announce the switch. "If you try to go to the same way and it doesn't get better, that's on me".

"When you watch Trevor, even last night, he made three awful interceptions, I mean horrific decisions, with those three he threw last night", Joseph said.

Osweiler spent his first four National Football League seasons with the Broncos as Peyton Manning's backup and had stints with the Texans and Browns before re-signing with Denver in September ahead of the regular season.

Brock Osweiler was the backup to Peyton Manning for four seasons in Denver.

Osweiler's work during that stretch helped the Broncos earn the No. 1 seed for their postseason run to Super Bowl 50. As for what the Eagles' defense should expect, let's just hope Osweiler comes out a little rusty, and shows similarities of the quarterback that struggled all of past year with the Texans.

Last season with the Houston Texans, Osweiler quarterbacked a first-round playoff victory over the Derek Carr-less Oakland Raiders.

"I think it's fair to say that right now, everything is being discussed", Joseph said Tuesday.
