On the opening play of the fourth quarter, Osweiler dropped back to pass, cocked his arm to throw the ball then before moving his arm forward the ball slipped out of his hand and was recovered by the Broncos' Chris Harris Jr. on the Texans 25-yard line.

"He was nervous, man, " said Broncos cornerback Aqib Talib, who presented the game ball to head coach Gary Kubiak following the victory.

They went on to increase that lead in the third quarter through Devontae Booker, before two additional field goals secured the win.

While the Broncos put themselves in a position to win by shutting down the Texans passing game, there was one area where Osweiler may have "won", according to safety Darien Stewart.

"They say every quarterback is going to experience it at some point where the ball just flies out of your hand, and unfortunately I got to experience it tonight", Osweiler told reporters after Houston fell to 4-3 for the season.

The Broncos are no worse for wear, now sitting at 5-2 with an opportunity for some revenge at home against the San Diego Chargers this week. The Broncos defense shut down Osweiler for the majority of the game and had a heck of a game holding them to only 3 field goals. Siemian was 14 of 25 for 157 yards, a TD and no interceptions.

The Broncos pounded the ball on the ground all night, rushing for 190 yards and getting one of the best performances in awhile from C.J. Anderson, who led the way with 107 yards on 16 carries. They helped the defense overcome its recent spate of slow starts by opening the game with a pair of three-and-outs.

But the big story was Trevor Siemian, Peyton Manning's surprise successor, outplaying Osweiler, who was groomed to be Denver's next QB for the last four years. "We did not play a good enough football game to get this job done". "All week we've been really putting in the work to see those guys have great success, and we saw that today, and we want to see that a lot more".

Denver's dazzling defense is a real dawdler, having allowed scores on five of six opening drives coming into the game.
