Denver Broncos vs Philadelphia Eagles

Congratulations on the beginning gig, Brock Osweiler. Now go beat one of the best staff in soccer.

Osweiler will probably be beneath heart for the primary time since January with Houston when the Denver Broncos (Three-Four) go to the Philadelphia Eagles (7-1) on Sunday. He has a troublesome process in a sport that Broncos should win to forestall from falling additional behind within the standings.

"This week will not be about me," Osweiler stated. "This week is solely about our staff discovering a option to get a win on the street in a hostile surroundings towards an important opponent. We all know we've got an enormous problem."


The Eagles have gained six straight video games and 6 in a row at dwelling, going again to final season. Their common margin of victory up to now three video games on the Linc has been 20 factors.

"Beginning with one of the best is an effective option to make an announcement about us getting again on observe," linebacker Shaquil Barrett stated.

Osweiler was 5-2 as a starter filling in for Peyton Manning in 2015. He returned to the bench as Manning and the protection led the Broncos to a Tremendous Bowl victory.

Osweiler signed an enormous contract with the Texans after that season and went 9-7 in 2016, together with 1-1 within the playoffs. He was traded to Cleveland, launched and got here again to Denver as Trevor Siemian's backup.

"He has expertise on the massive stage," Broncos coach Vance Joseph stated. "I am hoping that transfer can merely stabilize the offense in order that we are able to get into a good sport so we are able to win some soccer video games, or to easily see the place we're at as a soccer staff."

There aren't any quarterback points in Philadelphia.

Carson Wentz is having an MVP-caliber season and is a significant motive why a staff that wasn't speculated to be able to contend has turn out to be a front-runner to win the NFC.

"He is an important quarterback," stated Broncos security Will Parks, who grew up in Philly. "His maturity stage is at an all-time excessive. He isn't turning the ball over quite a bit. He is doing a great job so far as studying his targets and throwing them. It will be a fairly good problem for us, however a problem we'll be prepared for."

Here is some issues to observe for Sunday:

PROTECTING WENTZ: The Eagles had a troublesome time towards San Francisco's aggressive, blitzing protection. Wentz was sacked thrice and took a number of extra hits. They by some means need to discover a option to maintain Von Miller off Wentz. Miller usually rushes from the left facet so he would go towards proper sort out Lane Johnson. However with Halapoulivaati Vaitai filling in for nine-time Professional Bowl left sort out Jason Peters, Miller might line up in numerous spots.

"I'd anticipate him to maneuver round," Eagles offensive coordinator Frank Reich stated. "He is moved over sufficient instances that each staff has to organize for it for certain."

PROTECTING THE BALL: Turnovers are an enormous motive why the Broncos have misplaced three straight video games. They've 10 giveaways in the course of the stretch and are minus-11 general. Groups which have at the very least three turnovers in a sport are Three-40 this season.

"Profitable begins with defending the soccer," Osweiler stated. "Once you win the turnover margin and when you do not flip the ball over in any respect, your probabilities of successful skyrocket."

STINGY DEFENSE: The Broncos have the league's top-ranked protection, so it's going to be an enormous check for Wentz and the remainder of Philadelphia's high-powered offense. Miller has seven sacks and Aqib Talib and Chris Harris kind maybe one of the best cornerback tandem within the NFL.

MR. VERSATILE: Eagles security Malcolm Jenkins is all over within the secondary. He performs security in base protection, nickel cornerback in some packages, linebacker in others.

"He is a do-it-all participant," defensive coordinator Jim Schwartz stated. "He is good within the field. He is good within the deep a part of the sector. He is a really beneficial man to have and he provides you plenty of flexibility to have the ability to deal with issues that come up inside a season, inside a sport plan and in the midst of a sport."

A NEW WEAPON: Working again Jay Ajayi joined the Eagles this week in a commerce from Miami and upgrades the fifth-ranked speeding offense.

It is unsure how a lot work he'll get towards the Broncos as a result of he nonetheless has to get acclimated to a brand new offense. LeGarrette Blount is having a positive season for Philadelphia so Ajayi would not need to be a workhorse.
