Chris Harris: Broncos hit 'rock bottom' in loss to Eagles

In a November 29, 2015 game that ended in snowstorm conditions, Osweiler completed 23 of 42 for 270 yards and a touchdown to help the Broncos defeat the Patriots, 30-24 in overtime. But [Sunday], we're not a good football team, offensively, defensively, special teams, whatever.

Comfort, of course, was fleeting.

Osweiler made his 2017 debut for the Broncos against the Philadelphia Eagles, completing 50 percent of his passes with one touchdown and two interceptions. By then, Peyton Manning had taken over the Denver offense from Osweiler.

He did engineer four scoring drives - a touchdown and three field goals. When the Broncos got the ball back near the end of the first quarter, needing to generate some momentum in a game quickly shaping into a track meet, Osweiler locked onto Thomas. "And so we have to figure out what the problem is, and we will, because that's terrible".

Brock Osweiler will remain the starting quarterback for Sunday night's game against the New England Patriots, Head Coach Vance Joseph announced Monday.

"We'll see", he said. With the Patriots visiting next Sunday, it would be a really good time to find it and throw it on the field because a 3-6 record would leave little time for such a team to salvage what's been an increasingly disappointing season for the Broncos. Trying to figure out how to make plays.
