QB Osweiler leads Broncos in win over Pats


Congrats to the Broncos for defeating the Patriots, who seemed to be heading to another undefeated season.

“In retrospect, it was a lot to ask of Brock Osweiler to — in only his second start — loosen the stiff Patriots’ secondary on a frigid snowy night in Denver. But the backup turned the heat on late, leading a feverish fourth-quarter comeback after a slow start and staked his claim for the starting job in Denver. Osweiler didn’t light up the stat sheet (23/42, 270 yards, TD, INT), but he moved the ball in the second half, distributed to his key playmakers when necessary and made throws few quarterbacks, especially Peyton Manning, could make in that weather.” – Reported by Jeremy Bergman
