Osweiler plays in relief of Peyton Manning, expected to start vs. Bears
During the Broncos' 29-13 loss against the Kansas City Chiefs, quarterback Brock Osweiler was inserted into the game for a struggling Peyton Manning during the third quarter.
Manning, who broke the NFL record for career passing yards on Sunday, has been dealing with a partially torn plantar fascia in his left foot. He exited the game after completing just 5-of-20 passes for 35 yards and four interceptions.
Osweiler finished the game 14-of-24 with 146 passing yards, a touchdown, and an interception. He is expected to start for the Broncos this week when they visit the Chicago Bears.
