Broncos' Brock Osweiler: Poised for another start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Brock Osweiler will get another start Sunday against the Patriots, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports.

As expected, Peyton Manning (foot/ribs) will miss a second straight game, with his status looking cloudy beyond Week 12. Osweiler played well in his first career start, completing 20 of 27 passes for 250 yards and two touchdowns in Sunday's road win over the Bears.

Broncos' Brock Osweiler: Leads Broncos to road win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Brock Osweiler completed 20 of 27 passes for 250 yards and two touchdowns Sunday against the Bears. He also rushed twice for four yards.

Starting in place of the injured Peyton Manning (foot/ribs), Osweiler had total control of the offense, connecting with eight different receivers while throwing his touchdowns to Demaryius Thomas and Cody Latimer. Denver Broncos coach Gary Kubiak said earlier in the week that the offense would run very similarly under Osweiler as it did when Manning was healthy, but Osweiler took significantly more snaps under center, which also helped the rushing attack, as Ronnie Hillman finished with 21 carries for 102 yards while C.J. Anderson added 59 yards on 12 carries. Manning is reportedly trying to return in Week 12, though given the severity of his injury it's unclear if that's a realistic expectation. Given Osweiler's success Sunday, there seems to be little reason to rush Manning back before he is fully healthy, which could allow Osweiler to start next Sunday night against the Patriots.

Broncos' Brock Osweiler: Will start Week 11
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Osweiler will start next Sunday against the Bears in place of the injured Peyton Manning (foot), head coach Gary Kubiak announced Monday.

Manning was benched in the third quarter of this past Sunday's game against the Chiefs after completing just five of 20 passes for 35 yards and four interceptions, leaving Osweiler to try to bring the Broncos back. Osweiler was certainly more effective, completing 14 of 24 passes for 146 yards with one touchdown and one interception, though it wasn't nearly enough to make the game competitive (the Broncos trailed 22-0 heading into the fourth quarter). Osweiler has been considered the quarterback of the future in Denver since the team selected him in the second round of the 2012 draft, and he'll finally get an opportunity to show what he can do with Manning sidelined for at least one game. Manning is dealing with a torn plantar fascia in his right foot, and it is unclear if he will need to miss any additional time after Week 11. One other wrinkle for Osweiler is that Bears head coach John Fox was the head coach in Denver for the past four seasons, while Chicago offensive coordinator Adam Gase held the same role in Denver during Osweiler's tenure, so there may not be two coaches in the NFL that are more familiar with his tendencies.

Broncos backup QB Brock Osweiler has impressed in OTA's
by Ruben Palacios | Staff Writer

Broncos quaterback Brock Osweiler doesn't get a lot of reps. It's not his fault, he just happens to back up legendary passer Peyton Manning.

Osweiler has gotten a chance to participate more often this offseason because the Broncos are giving their veterans more off days, and he has been impressive.

"He has a lot more command," said running back C.J. Anderson. "He wants to go out there and play. He's been confident and comfortable, and he knows what he can do. He trusts his ability."

Osweiler, who has been Manning's backup for three seasons now, has continued to mature as an NFL quarterback despite only playing in 13 career games.

"I've always been impressed with Brock and his composure and how he commands the huddle," tight end Virgil Green said. "The more and more you play in the league, the more confident you get and the more composure you have out there."

Broncos' Peyton Manning to get more days off this year
by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com

Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning sat out practice on Monday, and he can expect it to happen more often than in the past.

New coach Gary Kubiak wants to manage Manning's practice snaps this year. The reasons are two-fold:  It will help keep the 39-year-old Manning fresh, and it will also give the coaching staff a good look at backup Brock Osweiler.

Kubiak said he was aware that Manning was "not a big fan" of sitting out practice, per the AP. "I just think it's important. I talked to him about it. You want guys that want to practice. They all want to practice. But you try to convince them, 'Hey, I want you there for the long haul and as healthy as you can be and as strong as you can be, and I also want to find out about these guys."
