Osweiler wins in first career start vs. Bears

Arizona State-product Brock Osweiler tossed two touchdowns, 250 yards and no interceptions in his first career start to lead the Denver Broncos over the Chicago Bears on Sunday.

Osweiler, who turned 25 on Sunday, is starting in place of quarterback Peyton Manning, who has been hampered by a plantar fascia injury.

The 6-foot-8 signal caller is expected to start once again this week when the Broncos take on the New England Patriots.
