Brock Osweiler completed 21-of-34 passes for 213 yards, two touchdowns, and zero interceptions in the Texans' Week 13 loss to the Packers.
Osweiler did not complete his first pass to a receiver until midway through the second quarter, and he was repeatedly late with his throws to the sidelines, a problem he has displayed all season. Osweiler did have a couple big completions when the Texans started focusing on the middle of the field, and he made a nice throw rolling right for his first touchdown in the third quarter. The second touchdown was a catch-and-run by DeAndre Hopkins in garbage time. Despite some success in the second half, this offense remains broken and Osweiler is not good enough to be part of the solution, but the Texans do not have much of a choice. He should start next week against the Colts. Dec 4 - 4:36 PM

Brock Osweiler has completed just 26 percent of his passes thrown 15 or more yards downfield.

That is the lowest completion rate among qualified quarterback according to ESPN Stats & Information. Osweiler also leads the league with eight interceptions downfield including three in Sunday's loss to the Chargers. Struggling with his decision making and unable to consistently put the ball on target, Osweiler is holding the offense hostage. If he struggles again this week against the Packers, coach Bill O'Brien will have to seriously consider giving Tom Savage a chance.

Texans coach Bill O'Brien said he will not bench Brock Osweiler.

"No," O'Brien flatly said when asked about starting backup Tom Savage. "We're going to come in here tomorrow, we're going to correct mistakes, and move on to Green Bay." Osweiler threw three interceptions in Sunday's loss to the Chargers and continues to hold the offense back with his inability to consistently make the correct decision and put the ball on target. The Texans are still a half-game up in the division, but they are in real danger of falling out of the playoff picture. If Brock struggles again next week against the Packers, O'Brien could be forced to make a change.

Brock Osweiler completed 22-of-37 passes for 246 yards and three interceptions Week 12 against the Chargers.

Osweiler added 23 yards and a touchdown on the ground. Brock actually made some nice throws including a bomb down the sideline to Will Fuller in the first half, but he was as inconsistent as ever. He showed his trademarked lack of touch on an early incompletion to C.J. Fiedorowicz, and he flashed his trademarked lack of accuracy on several poorly placed throws including two of his interceptions. The first was thrown behind DeAndre Hopkins while Osweiler was moving left in the first half, and the second was thrown 10 feet over Fiedorowicz’s head in the fourth quarter. Osweiler has been holding this offense back all season, and that is unlikely to change even in a great matchup against the Packers next week.
Nov 27 - 4:59 PM

Brock Osweiler completed 26-of-39 passes for 243 yards, one touchdown, and one interception in the Texans' Week 11 loss to the Raiders.

Osweiler surprisingly wasn't bad in this one, though he probably should have been picked off at least two other times throwing passes right to OLB Shilique Calhoun and CB David Amerson only to see them dropped. But Osweiler probably should have had a 60-yard touchdown on his record if the refs hadn't blown the play dead, ruling DeAndre Hopkins stepped out of bounds, when at further review it looked like he may have actually stayed in the whole time. Osweiler made some tight-window throws to C.J. Fiedorowicz and hit Braxton Miller for a 12-yard touchdown. Osweiler was able to keep the Texans in the game from start to finish, even dealing with a fan pointing a green laser at his face from the stands a number of times. Osweiler and the 6-4 Texans will host the Chargers in Week 12. Osweiler won't be a recommended fantasy play.
Nov 22 - 12:13 AM

Brock Osweiler completed 14-of-27 passes for 99 yards and two touchdowns in the Texans' Week 10 win over the Jaguars.

He added three scrambles for 23 yards. The Texans' passing game was as anemic as ever against Jacksonville's underrated pass defense, but Osweiler executed twice for short scores and didn't make any glaring mistakes to hurt his team in Houston's 24-21 win. Osweiler will continue to be a two-quarterback-league option only when the Texans take on an improving Raiders defense in Week 11.
Nov 13 - 5:38 PM

Texans owner Bob McNair explained away Brock Osweiler's struggles by saying he is "still basically a rookie."

"He's going to make some mistakes," McNair continued, "but he shows that he has the talent, he has the ability and has the leadership that the team has confidence in him." While Osweiler has started just 15 career games, he has been in the league since 2012. A lack of experience is also not to blame for his serious accuracy concerns. While the Texans might win a pitiful division this year, Osweiler is looking like a $72-million albatross.
Oct 31 - 11:51 AM

Brock Osweiler completed 20-of-29 passes for 186 yards, one touchdown, and one interception in the Texans' Week 8 win over the Lions.

After his embarrassing return to Denver last Monday night, Osweiler was again terrible in this one despite the (much) better numbers. He took way too many sacks in scoring position, and also badly missed C.J. Fiedorowicz, throwing 10 feet over his head in the end zone on what could have been a touchdown. That came after he hooked up with a wide-open Fiedorowicz for a six-yard touchdown in the first quarter. Osweiler's pick was a terrible under-throw to DeAndre Hopkins. Osweiler and the Texans head into their bye before traveling to Jacksonville in Week 10.

NFL executives and coaches who have watched Brock Osweiler play believe he has lost confidence, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter.

One league source told Schefter that Osweiler's inaccurate throws are "a direct result of his lack of assurance in his abilities." Osweiler is completing just 58.2 percent of his passes and has an 8:8 TD-to-INT ratio on the season. Perhaps a Week 8 matchup with Detroit's league-worst pass defense which is missing top CB Darius Slay will restore some of Osweiler's faith in himself.

Texans coach Bill O'Brien said he hasn't considered benching Brock Osweiler.

There's no time like the present. Osweiler was depressingly bad in Monday's loss to the Broncos, making zero plays and playing without courage. Osweiler didn't even consider all but the safest throws. He has eight touchdowns in seven games, which would be great if this were the '70s. We're seeing why Osweiler couldn't hold off a decrepit Peyton Manning last season. Osweiler might only have 1-2 more games like last night in the pipe before O'Brien is forced to consider Tom Savage.

RotoGrinders.com Daily Slant: Even with a dream match-up against the Lions coming up, Osweiler can't be trusted in DFS. He just doesn't appear able to actually make them pay for their shortcomings based on what we've seen recently. Osweiler has thrown for under 200 yards in three of his last five and owns a 5-5 TD-INT ratio (along with five fumbles) over that span.
Oct 25 - 3:48 PM

Brock Osweiler completed 22-of-41 passes for 131 yards, no touchdowns, and no interceptions in the Texans' 27-9, Week 7 loss to the Broncos.

The 131 yards were the fewest Osweiler has ever compiled in any of his 14 career starts. The 131 yards were also the second-fewest all time among any quarterback who attempted at least 40 passes. Only Jesse Palmer's 110 yards on 43 attempts in 2003 is worse. Osweiler averaged more yards per carry (5.3) on three rushing attempts than he averaged per pass (3.2). He also fumbled twice, losing one on a hilariously-awful play where the ball simply flung out of his hand as he was cocking to throw. If not for his comeback win in Week 6, there would be loud grumbles coming out of Houston on Osweiler potentially needing to be sat. As has been the case all year, Osweiler missed wide-open targets Monday night and showed no touch. He at least gets a plus date with the Lions at home in Week 8.
Oct 24 - 11:36 PM

Brock Osweiler was added to the injury report with a foot injury, but practiced in full.

It's a non-issue for his Week 7 status. Osweiler will be fine for Monday night's game against Denver.
Oct 20 - 4:42 PM

Brock Osweiler completed 25-of-39 passes for 269 yards, two touchdowns, and an interception in the Texans' Week 6 win over the Colts.

Osweiler was dreadful for three-plus quarters, but managed to rally the Texans for a comeback win. He hit C.J. Fiedorowicz for a 26-yard touchdown with under a minute remaining to tie the game, and connected with Jaelen Strong on a 30-plus yard pass to set up the winning field goal. Osweiler was on the hot seat going into tonight, but bought himself more leash as the starter. He’ll be a low-end QB2 for a reunion with the Broncos in Week 7.
Oct 17 - 12:29 AM

Brock Osweiler completed 19-of-42 passes for 184 yards, one touchdown, and one interception in the Texans' 31-13 loss to the Vikings Week 5.

Amazingly, the stat line actually paints a prettier picture than Osweiler did on the field Sunday. The Texans did not manage a first down on their first four drives, and Osweiler was 7-of-20 for 54 yards at the break. Aside from a meaningless touchdown drive late in the game, it was not much better in the second half, and Osweiler was lucky to escape with just one turnover. The Texans are heavily invested in Osweiler, but it will be interesting to see how long they are loyal if this level of play continues. He will not be worth using even at home against the Colts next week.
Oct 9 - 4:11 PM

Texans coach Bill O'Brien said he is not worried about Brock Osweiler's six interceptions.

O'Brien blamed himself for a few of the picks, but said a couple "haven't been good decisions." Five of the interceptions have come while targeting DeAndre Hopkins, but Osweiler does not think he is forcing the ball to his No. 1 receiver. "I wouldn't call it trying to force the ball to Hop. I would call it I need to make a more accurate throw," Osweiler said. "I just think I need to make better decisions and throw more accurate footballs." With the Vikings next up on the schedule, Osweiler will likely toss a few more interceptions this Sunday.
