Recent Game Summaries

2017 Week 16 vs WAS (22 / 38 / 193 / 0 / 1 pass, 4 / 27 / 0 rush)

Osweiler had a nice rhythm going with Demaryius Thomas on the opening drive, hitting him down the seam for a big gain on the first offensive snap, then an out route for a nice catch-and-run. The Denver passing game quickly devolved into a complete mess as Osweiler was constantly harried by pressure from the Washington front 7. Sanders and Latimer were out, and Osweiler couldn't get anything going downfield. Osweiler targeted his backs 20 times (Anderson-9, Booker-8, Janovich-2, Henderson-1) on passes that were mostly checkdowns or screens. Osweiler fumbled and lost the ball while attempting to escape a Ryan Kerrigan sack late in the 2nd quarter. The Broncos got the ball back before the half, but Osweiler unfortunately tossed an interception after the ball was tipped at the line of scrimmage. Osweiler was sacked four times and was mostly ineffective with his scrambling, typically sliding down a yard or two past the line of scrimmage. He did break one long run of 18 late in the 4th quarter after Washington had moved to a soft prevent defense with a 24 point lead. Osweiler and the offense led a scoring drive late in the 4th, with CJ Anderson punching in a five yard touchdown and catching a short two-point conversion. Denver has announced that Paxton Lynch will start in week 17.

2017 Week 15 vs IND (12 / 17 / 194 / 2 / 0 pass, 3 / 17 / 1 rush)

Osweiler was pressed into service after Siemian injured his shoulder at the end of the 1st quarter. Osweiler ran the play-action passing game to perfection behind Anderson's strong performance on the ground. The offense went three-and-out for his first series, but Osweiler led a scoring drive at the end of the 2nd quarter, capping it with an 18 yard touchdown run. The Colts ran man coverage with no one spying on Osweiler, and he barreled up the middle of the field to the end zone. Osweiler's first touchdown pass was a beautiful corner route to Cody Latimer, who beat his man from the left slot in a spread formation. Osweiler took the shotgun snap and lofted the the ball over the defender. Osweiler found Jeff Heuerman later in the 3rd quarter on a play-action post route that the tight end took to the house for a 54 yard score.

2017 Week 11 vs CIN (23 / 42 / 254 / 1 / 1 pass, 4 / 24 / 0 rush)

Osweiler was terrible in the first half, throwing one interception and racking up less than a hundred yards with no touchdowns. Oz had a nifty 12 yard scramble to convert 3rd and short in the 1st quarter, setting the Broncos up inside the Cincinnati red zone. Unfortunately, he hit CB Dre Kirkpatrick in the end zone two plays later, leading to a 99 yard INT return and an ensuing Cincinnati touchdown. CJ Anderson tossed the ball back to Osweiler after a handoff for a 3rd quarter flea-flicker, but there was apparently a miscommunication on the play as Osweiler launched the ball to a very empty spot downfield. Osweiler found a rhythm with Demaryius Thomas in the 4th quarter, hitting him for several passes before capping the drive with a 17 yard touchdown on a beautiful over-the-shoulder fade. Osweiler and the offense got the ball back with just under two minute left in the game, trailing Cincinnati by three points. Osweiler got blown up on 2nd down, leading to 3rd and 17 with less than a minute left, then missed Sanders on a slant route on 4th and short. Osweiler finished the day with three official sacks for 25 yards.

2017 Week 10 vs NE (18 / 33 / 221 / 1 / 1 pass, 1 / -1 / 0 rush)

Poor special teams play early in the contest dug the Broncos into a hole that Osweiler just wasn't able to pull them out of. Osweiler led a couple of scoring drives early, leaning on a solid connection with Emmanuel Sanders. Unfortunately, Denver couldn't find the end zone and settled for field goals while the Patriots racked up touchdowns. Osweiler finally found Demaryius Thomas for a touchdown late in the 3rd quarter, dropping back into the pocket while Thomas boxed his defender out on a crossing route for the score from the New England 7. Osweiler was intercepted by safety Patrick Chung late in the 4th after making a questionable throw to TE Heuerman, who was double covered on an out route.

2017 Week 9 vs PHI (19 / 38 / 208 / 1 / 2 pass, 0 / 0 / 0 rush)

Denver, seeking direction after a rough few weeks, turned to Osweiler at quarterback. The results were not spectacular, as the QB was unable to establish a rhythm with any receiver other than Thomas. Osweiler's longest connections of the day were a 30 yard corner route to Sanders on play action in the 2nd, and a 32 yard bomb down the left sideline to Cody Latimer at the end of the 3rd. Osweiler force-fed Demaryius Thomas slants, curls, and bubble screens throughout the contest. Thomas and Osweiler finally scored in the 4th quarter on a WR bubble screen from the Philadelphia 2 yard line. Osweiler nearly threw an early 1st quarter interception while looking for Sanders on a curl route, but the ball bounced off the defenders' chest. Osweiler made an awful decision later in the 1st, throwing the ball right to another defender who was covering Thomas step-for-step on a slant route. This time the pass stuck, and the Eagles returned the ball to the Denver red zone. Osweiler came right back out on the next drive and slung a 3rd-and-long pass into triple coverage, nearly resulting in another pick. Osweiler threw a high pass to Booker on a crossing route in the 3rd, nearly resulting in another pick as Booker couldn't make a leaping grab and deflected it to an Eagles defender. Osweiler finally connected with another Eagle in the 3rd quarter. Staring down a free-blitzed, Oz chucked the ball straight up in the air, in the general direction of a streaking Demaryius Thomas. The ball landed about 20 feet away from Thomas, right in the hands of the free safety. Despite the slow performance, the Broncos claim they will stick with Osweiler in week 10.
