OSWEILER LEADS DENVER COMEBACK
Broncos QB Brock Osweiler, who replaced injured starter Trevor Siemian, became the first player in team history to pass for two touchdowns and run for another in relief. Osweiler completed 12-of-17 passes (70.6%) for 194 yards with two touchdowns (147.7 rtg.) and rushed three times for 17 yards (5.7 avg.) with one score. He also became the ninth Broncos quarterback with multiple games scoring a passing touchdown and a rushing touchdown.
Osweiler scored on an 18-yard touchdown run in the second quarter to represent the longest scoring run by a Broncos quarterback since Tim Tebow (20 yds., vs. NYJ, 11/17/11). Overall, it stands as the sixth-longest scoring run by a quarterback in Broncos history.
THOMAS REACHES 70 CATCHES
Broncos WR Demaryius Thomas totaled five receptions for 69 yards (13.8 avg.) against the Colts. Thomas now has 73 receptions on the season. He is the first NFL player to record six 70+catch seasons since Detroit WR Calvin Johnson (2010-15) and the first Bronco to accomplish that feat since WR Rod Smith had a team-record nine straight seasons with 70 catches (1997-2005).
ANDERSON TOPS 100 YARDS
Broncos RB C.J. Anderson rushed for 158 yards on 30 carries (5.3 avg.) to represent his seventh career 100-yard rushing game and his third-highest career rushing output. Denver is 7-0 all-time in games when Anderson rushes for 100 yards.
