Broncos bench QB Trevor Siemian, promote Brock Osweiler

03 November 2017

Next to Osweiler during breaks for the Broncos' offense was starter Trevor Siemian, who piled up one costly mistake after another in Denver's 29-19 loss to the Chiefs.

Broncos rookie tight-end Jake Butt returned to the practice field; Emmanuel Sanders and Todd Davis also practiced for the Broncos. Siemian was 19 for 36 with 198 passing yards, one touchdown and three interceptions.

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

The Broncos' decision to switch to Osweiler also reflects poorly on second-year QB Paxton Lynch, who just came off the injury report with a shoulder injury before being passed over. "So when you watch your starting quarterback make 20 or 25 incredible throws, wonderful checks and three horrific interceptions, that's when it becomes an issue because, in your heart, you know he can play better". We're not yet two years removed from that happening, and now - 23 regular season games later - Osweiler is finally getting another shot to be Denver's starting quarterback.

Osweiler waited more than three years for the Broncos to toss him into the mix in his first stint with the team when he started seven games for an injured Peyton Manning in 2015. Osweiler was released when Kizer was named the starter on September 2 and signed with the Broncos later that day.

To their credit Chelsea responded well and had a great chance of their own just moments after the opening goal. Ranieri , who now manages French side Nantes, has backed Antonio Conte to get the team back to their best.

The Broncos went on to win Super Bowl 50 that season, then Osweiler left to sign a free agent contract with the Houston Texans and Siemian won the starting job in training camp.

However, the Broncos have seen enough of Osweiler to know what he is and are likely just hoping he will cut down on turnovers.

This is, at least for Week 9's matchup with the Philadelphia Eagles.

After Osweiler threw for 15 touchdowns and 16 interceptions for the Texans in 2016, Houston traded him to Cleveland this offseason in what amounted to a salary dump.

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