Brock Osweiler completed 22-of-38 passes for 193 yards, zero touchdowns and an interception in the Broncos' 27-11, Week 16 loss to the Redskins.
He also lost a fumble, pathetically letting the ball dribble forward after appearing to evade a sack. Osweiler was dispiritingly bad, never coming particularly close to leading the Broncos to a touchdown drive until deep into garbage time. As expected, last week's relief appearance in Indianapolis was a complete and utter fluke. We would expect Paxton Lynch to be under center for next week's finale against the Chiefs.

Brock Osweiler is the Broncos' Week 16 quarterback against the Redskins.

Paxton Lynch (ankle) couldn't convince the Broncos he was ready to start, though he is active. Inactive for the Broncos are RB Jamaal Charles, WR Emmanuel Sanders, WR Cody Latimer, OL Elijah Wilkinson, OL J.J. Dielman, CB Bredan Langley and DB Michael Hunter. Demaryius Thomas, Bennie Fowler and Jordan Taylor should operate as the Broncos' top-four receivers.

Brock Osweiler will start Week 16 against Washington.

This confirms previous reports. Paxton Lynch (ankle) isn't healthy enough to start after a limited week of practice. Osweiler is coming off one of his better games in Week 15 but isn't a streaming option.

9News Denver reports "all signs point" to Brock Osweiler starting Week 16 against Washington.

This isn't a surprise after coach Vance Joseph confirmed Paxton Lynch (questionable, ankle) isn't fully healthy. Osweiler is coming off one of his better games last week and will make another spot start. The Broncos will have to wait until Week 17 to get another look at Lynch.

Brock Osweiler completed 12-of-17 passes for 194 yards and two touchdowns in the Broncos' 25-13, Week 15 win over the Colts, adding three rushes for 17 yards and an additional score.

Trevor Siemian was knocked out with a season-ending shoulder injury on the Broncos' second drive. Osweiler checked in and promptly balled, dropping dimes and galloping like a gazelle on his 18-yard touchdown run in the second quarter. 54 of his yards and one of his scores came on an absolute seed to TE Jeff Heuerman in the third quarter (it was a weird night). Osweiler's other touchdown was a gutsy 22-yarder to a tightly-covered Cody Latimer (again, weird night). With Paxton Lynch's (high-ankle sprain) health status unknown, there's a good chance Osweiler is under center for Week 16 against the Redskins.

Brock Osweiler is a healthy scratch for Week 12 against Oakland.

Osweiler has been demoted to third string after losing the starting job last week. Trevor Siemian will back up Paxton Lynch.

Brock Osweiler completed 23-of-42 passes for 254 yards with one touchdown and one interception while adding 24 yards on four carries Sunday in the Broncos’ Week 11 loss to the Bengals.

Osweiler was sacked three times for a loss of 25 yards. He was abysmal in the first half, completing just nine-of-19 passes for 97 yards and an interception. That interception nearly went for a pick-six but Dre Kirkpatrick ended up fumbling at the one-yard line following a 100-yard return. Osweiler seemed to be favoring his shoulder late in the first half but looked more comfortable as the game went along and even led a fourth-quarter comeback, though the bid would ultimately fall short. His lone touchdown came on a 17-yard strike to Demaryius Thomas with just over five minutes remaining in the game. It was another discouraging effort for the Broncos, who are now 0-3 with Osweiler as their starter. Denver will take a six-game losing streak into next week’s game at Oakland.

Brock Osweiler (shoulder) is practicing in full for Week 11.

Osweiler's shoulder isn't a concern, but his play is. He will be a bottom-barrel QB2 against the Bengals.

Brock Osweiler has a minor shoulder injury but is expected to start Week 11 against the Bengals.

Osweiler didn't do much throwing on Wednesday, and it was Paxton Lynch next in line getting the majority of the reps ahead of Trevor Siemian.

The Broncos will start Brock Osweiler at quarterback again this week.

The Broncos appear to be playing out the string at this point in the year.

Brock Osweiler completed 18-of-31 passes for 221 yards with one touchdown and one interception while rushing once for a loss of one yard Sunday in the Broncos’ Week 10 loss to the Patriots.

Osweiler got off to a solid start, opening the game by leading the Broncos on back-to-back scoring drives. Even as the Patriots started pulling away, Brock maintained a solid connection with Emmanuel Sanders, hooking up five times for 114 yards in the first half. Osweiler found Demaryius Thomas in the end zone for a seven-yard touchdown to begin the third quarter, but was mostly unsuccessful after that. Jeff Heuerman was the intended receiver on Brock’s lone interception, which came about halfway through the third quarter. The Broncos have been outscored by an astounding 92-39 margin in Osweiler’s two starts. Assuming Osweiler keeps his job for another week, he’ll get the Bengals at home next Sunday.

NBC Denver reports the Broncos will stick with Brock Osweiler as their Week 10 quarterback.

Osweiler was dismal in Sunday's blowout loss to the Eagles, but second-year pro Paxton Lynch (shoulder) must not be ready yet. The more Osweiler has seen an NFL field, the worse he's gotten. There's no way he will finish the year under center in Denver. The Patriots are an attackable matchup for Week 10, but Osweiler is a better matchup for the Pats than they are for him. He'll be a last-gasp QB2.

Brock Osweiler completed 19-of-38 passes for 208 yards, one touchdown, and two interceptions in the Broncos' Week 9 loss to the Eagles.

He took three sacks. As much as ever, Osweiler played tentatively in the pocket and pre-determined throws in the huddle as opposed to scanning through his reads. He's a low-level backup quarterback in the NFL, at best. There have been whispers the Broncos will turn to Paxton Lynch in Week 10 against the Patriots. After Osweiler's performance on Sunday, it certainly wouldn't surprise.

Coach Vance Joseph announced Brock Osweiler will be the Broncos' starting quarterback Week 9 against the Eagles.

It's a move that had to be made after Trevor Siemian once again stunk up the joint on national television Monday night in Kansas City. Siemian has thrown eight picks to just three touchdowns the past five weeks, and the Broncos have lost 4-of-5 heading into Philly. Osweiler isn't any better, but Joseph ran the risk of losing the team if he didn't shake it up. The Eagles' defense is arguably the top team defense play of the week, especially if CB Ronald Darby (ankle) is back.

RotoGrinders.com Daily Slant: Demaryius Thomas could benefit from the change. With Siemian, Thomas averaged 8.5 targets per game and he’s hit double-digits once. Across Osweiler’s eight appearances in 2015, Thomas attracted 10.5 looks per game and saw between 10-14 five times. If Ronald Darby is out, Thomas could battle Rasul Douglas (14th-most yards/cover snap), and Jalen Mills (4th-most total yards).

Broncos signed QB Brock Osweiler, formerly of the Browns.

He's expected to sign for the veteran's minimum, which would provide some relief to the Browns, who had been on the hook for his entire $16 million salary. Osweiler, of course, began his career in Denver and at one point looked like the heir apparent to Peyton Manning. He's a low-risk flyer for the Broncos, who needed a backup quarterback with Paxton Lynch (shoulder) on the shelf. Osweiler is no threat to starter Trevor Siemian.
