4 stats to know as Philadelphia Eagles, Denver Broncos gear up for Week 9 meeting

The Pats will once again have a significant advantage with Tom Brady under center when they face the Broncos in Week 10, as Denver head coach Vance Joseph has officially named Brock Osweiler the starter moving forward, according to the NFL Network's James Palmer.

Broncos rookie tight-end Jake Butt returned to the practice field; Emmanuel Sanders and Todd Davis also practiced for the Broncos.

Siemian went 19 of 36 for 198 yards and finished with an abysmal 43.5 QB rating.

When looking at the way Trevor Siemian has been struggling over the last few weeks to get the offense rolling for the Denver Broncos, the defense of the Philadelphia Eagles seemed to be licking their chops over this potential matchup in Week 9. So it would make sense for the Broncos to name Lynch the No. 2 quarterback when he's ready, which would bump Siemian down to being inactive on game days.

"When you watch Trevor, even last night, he made three awful interceptions, " Joseph said.

He started seven games in the 2015 season when Manning was injured, going 5-2 before being benched at halftime of the regular-season finale. The Browns released him in the summer and he quickly rejoined the Broncos, who needed a backup after Paxton Lynch sprained his throwing shoulder in the preseason.

Last season with the Houston Texans Osweiler started 14 games and went 8-6 as the starting quarterback.

After starting the season 3-1, the Broncos have lost three straight and are looking for some momentum in order to catch the division-leading Kansas City Chiefs in the AFC West.

The decision comes down to Siemian and Osweiler, at least for this week. He then left in free agency, signing a four-year, $72 million contract with the Houston Texans.

"In your heart, you know he can play better because those three balls he threw, you just can't throw".

"I think it's fair to say that right now, everything is being discussed", Joseph said Tuesday.
