The Denver Broncos will be hosting the Houston Texans for Monday Night Football and this will be Osweiler’s first visit back to Denver since he was a free-agent who didn’t resign with the team.
On Monday, the Broncos linebacker Brandon Marshall expressed his thoughts regarding Brock Osweiler’s returning to Denver.
Marshall told ABC 7 in Denver, “There’s no ill will toward Brock. I am happy he got paid. But it’s competition. We want to kill him.
Currently, the Broncos are leading the NFL with the fourth-most sacks being 17 with Von Miller being second in the NFL with 7.5 sacks.
Osweiler led the Broncos last season 5-2 when Peyton Manning was injured, helping the Broncos into the Super Bowl.
“He’s a gunslinger. He’s also forcing a lot of throws. We know that he left us,” defensive back Chris Harris, Jr. said. “It’s going to be great. I am pretty sure that he wants to win, and we want to beat him bad and get a lot of interceptions.”
Osweiler’s weakness is when he’s under pressure, he struggles and according the Pro Football Focus, Osweiler’s passer rating drops to 23.2 when in duress while being sacked 12 times.
Osweiler has 81 dropbacks, 25 completed passes, averaging 3.5 yards per attempts and he’s been picked off four times.
