Brock Osweiler completed 24-of-41 passes for 196 yards, zero touchdowns and an interception in Houston's 27-0, Week 3 road loss to the Patriots.
There's no sugarcoating this one. Osweiler was absolutely horrendous, taking forever to unleash throws and showing zero touch when he did. The night was like a lowlights reel of Osweiler's Broncos film. He was lucky to escape with only one interception. The pick he did throw was a nightmare job where he completely misread the coverage. Osweiler did stick some amazing throws to DeAndre Hopkins, and was hurt by a few drops, but he didn't help the cause this evening. The Texans showed a lack of trust by continually dialing up third down draws. Osweiler now has only three scores and 695 yards through three Texans starts. He won't be a viable QB2 against the Titans in Week 4. Sep 22 - 11:36 PM

Brock Osweiler completed 19-of-33 passes for 268 yards, one touchdown, and two interceptions in the Texans' Week 2 win over the Chiefs.

It was not a stellar game for Osweiler, but he did a great job giving DeAndre Hopkins and Will Fuller opportunities to make plays. Together the duo accounted for 58 percent of his completions and 81 percent of his yards. He did throw a pick targeting Hopkins, but the ball was behind his star receiver. His other interception came when he tried to force a ball to Braxton Miller at the goal line. With Nuk and Fuller on the outside, Osweiler should have some big games this season.

Brock Osweiler completed 22-of-35 passes for 231 yards, two touchdowns, and an interception in the Texans' Week 1 win over the Bears.

The offense got off to a rocky start in this one, and Osweiler did not help matters by throwing a bad, stare-down interception at the end of the first drive. He threw a nice pass to DeAndre Hopkins for a touchdown in the back of the end zone in the second quarter, however, and he continually hooked up with Will Fuller in the second half for big gains. He probably should have had two more touchdowns, but Fuller dropped a beautifully placed bomb and Hopkins dropped a tough catch in the end zone. Overall it was a solid start to his Texans career, but he will face a tougher test next week against the Chiefs.
Sep 11 - 5:40 PM

Brock Osweiler completed 11-of-13 passes for 146 yards and a touchdown in Sunday’s regular season dress rehearsal.

Osweiler would have been 12-for-13 if not for an embarrassing drop by Will Fuller. On Houston's opening drive, Osweiler took advantage of excellent field position with back-to-back strikes to rookie Braxton Miller, setting up Lamar Miller's goal-line TD. Later, Osweiler connected on a 35-yard dart to Fuller down the right sideline and found him again for a 26-yard touchdown before passing the baton to Tom Savage. Osweiler did lose 15 yards on a pair of sacks but it was still an impressive showing in his final regular season tune-up. Osweiler isn’t a re-draft consideration but certainly has the weapons to be a streaming option in plus matchups.

Texans WR Cecil Shorts said new QB Brock Osweiler has been "like a student" this offseason.

"Very professional," Shorts continued. "I can see what he learned from 18 [Peyton Manning]." In a deep look at his first offseason with the Texans (linked below), Osweiler said he is excited for the "challenge" of learning a new offense and integrating himself with a new organization. If comments from his coaches and teammates are to be believed, he appears to be doing well on both fronts. Houston should remain a run-first attack, but Osweiler could potentially add an important edge in the passing game.

Texans OC George Godsey says the running game will remain the "foundation" of Houston's offense.

The Texans gave Brock Osweiler a four-year, $72 million deal, but they'll remain a run-first team in 2016 after ranking No. 1 and No. 5 in the NFL in rushing attempts the past two seasons. "I think as an offensive coach and play-caller it all starts with the running game," said Godsey. "It helps with play action and that works down the field." Although Osweiler received more money, Lamar Miller projects as the Texans' highest-impact offseason addition.

Texans OC George Godsey said the arrow is pointing up for Brock Osweiler.

Osweiler appears to be fully committed to his role as Houston's franchise quarterback and his diligence has not gone unnoticed. "Players see it, players respect it, coaches definitely respect it, too," said Godsey. "That's what a leader does." We've heard a lot about how much time Osweiler has put in this spring but not much about his on-field performance. The 25-year-old will be a back-end QB2/3 pick in two-quarterback fantasy leagues.

Texans coach Bill O'Brien says Brock Osweiler has been "exactly what we've expected."

Osweiler admitted last month he was struggling to pick up the team's offense but it looks like he has a better grasp on it now. "He works extremely hard. He's a very bright guy. He's a good communicator with his teammates," said O'Brien. "He's been exactly what we expected to this point." Osweiler is still largely unproven but he should be an upgrade over last year's starter Brian Hoyer.

Brock Osweiler says he’s struggled to pick up the Texans’ offense.

"It’s like you speak Spanish your whole life and then all of a sudden, they tell you to go learn French and do it in front of 70,000 people," Osweiler said. "There’s some carryover from my previous years. It’s not like I’m a complete rookie with no base, but obviously there’s a lot of new things." Osweiler is in the early stages of comprehending Bill O’Brien’s scheme. We suspect this is an overblown story so early in the offseason. The Texans are fully invested in Osweiler after giving him $37 million guaranteed on a four-year, $72 million deal.
May 11 - 6:57 PM

After studying Brock Osweiler's film, Texans coach Bill O'Brien came away impressed with Osweiler's ability to "stand in (the pocket) when everything is flying at you."

O'Brien specifically mentioned Osweiler's Weeks 12 and 14 starts. Osweiler helped engineer a fourth quarter comeback in Week 12 against the Pats, but was far less impressive in Week 14 versus Oakland. Osweiler routinely held onto the ball for too long, taking five sacks as Khalil Mack practically lived in his facemask. Osweiler flashed glimpses of competence in 2015, but it's important to remember the last time he took an NFL field, he got benched. Despite his massive contract, he's a project for the Texans. O'Brien has coaxed solid play out of Ryan Fitzpatrick and Brian Hoyer, and is clearly confident in his ability to mold Osweiler.

Texans agreed to terms with QB Brock Osweiler, formerly of the Broncos, on a four-year, $72 million contract.

The Houston Chronicle's John McClain had previously reported Osweiler was unlikely to go to the Texans. Osweiler called the Broncos' bluff, and will now team up with skilled QB tutor Bill O'Brien, who maximized the talents of Matt McGloin and Christian Hackenberg at Penn State, before doing the same with Ryan Fitzpatrick, Brian Hoyer, and even T.J. Yates and Brandon Weeden the past two years in Houston. Osweiler, 25, went 5-2 in seven starts for Denver last season. It's unclear whether he'll develop into a legitimate franchise quarterback, but he offers adequate arm strength and plus athleticism, and flashed the ability to move the Broncos' offense in a small sample size. He also had breakdowns in the second halves of games, tended to lock onto his primary read, was benched for washed-up Peyton Manning late in the year. The Broncos may now set their sets on trying to acquire Colin Kaepernick from San Francisco.
Mar 9 - 3:08 PM's Ian Rapoport reports free agent Brock Osweiler is deciding between the Broncos and Texans.

Per Rapsheet, the Broncos have "ramped up their efforts" to re-sign their longtime backup. Easily the best quarterback available after Ryan Fitzpatrick, Osweiler is ready to cash in on an extremely modest résumé.
Mar 9 - 12:26 PM

9 News Denver's Mike Klis reports the Broncos and free agent QB Brock Osweiler have reopened negotiations.

NFL Network's James Palmer reported Tuesday the two sides had not spoken since the Broncos offered a three-year, $45 million deal, but Klis reports negotiations resumed Tuesday afternoon. They are expected to intensify in the lead up to the new league year Wednesday. Osweiler is reportedly receiving serious interest from the Texans as well, but those reports could be overblown. Osweiler's future should come into sharper focus in the next 24 hours.
Mar 9 - 11:30 AM

NFL Network's James Palmer reports the Broncos have ceased negotiating with free agent Brock Osweiler since making him a three-year, $45 million offer "several days ago."

Word leaked of the Broncos' offer on Saturday, March 5, but it conceivably could've been made a few days before that. Breakdown in talks can be a typical obstacle in negotiations, but it obviously prevents any progress from being made, and that's particularly concerning for Denver with the beginning of the new league year less than 24 hours away. ESPN's Adam Schefter reported Tuesday that if Osweiler leaves the Broncos, he'll likely land in Houston.
Mar 8 - 9:59 PM

ESPN's Adam Schefter stated on SportsCenter that he anticipates free agent Brock Osweiler's decision coming down to the Broncos and Texans.

Schefter termed it "a battle between those two teams." Osweiler's best chance at success -- in our opinion -- would be to stay in Denver, where he knows Gary Kubiak's system and has a three-year, $45 million offer on the table. Bill O'Brien does have a highly impressive track record coaching up quarterbacks, however, and it's conceivable the Texans will offer Osweiler more money.
