Brock Osweiler to start vs. New England Patriots

Posted Nov 6, 2017

Osweiler gave the Broncos a boost last week, Head Coach Vance Joseph said.

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. — Brock Osweiler will start Sunday night's game against the New England Patriots, Head Coach Vance Joseph announced Monday.

In his first start of the season, Osweiler finished 19-of-38 for 208 yards, one touchdown and two interceptions against Philadelphia.

"I thought Brock had an excellent week of preparation," Joseph said. "It felt good to our team. It was a confident week. The energy was better. It was urgent. It was detailed. The meetings were better. Brock's experience and Brock's personality really helped our team bounce back and gave us confident going into this week.

"I think Brock's earned it from that standpoint. In the football game, it wasn't perfect again. He had two interceptions, which he can't have. He understands that. He had a couple ill-advised throws. But Brock did some good things as far as putting us in good plays. The red-zone audible to [Demaryius Thomas] for the touchdown, that was one of Brock's audibles. I think Brock deserves one more week to kind of prove he's the guy for us, because he had a great week of preparation."

Osweiler's last start for the Broncos against the Patriots resulted in a 30-24 overtime win. He completed 23-of-42 passes for 270 yards, one touchdown and an interception in a come-from-behind victory.
