The Broncos will have their chance at revenge, for lack of a better term, at the QB that was suppose to be under center in Denver’s defense of the Lombardi Trophy they magically captured last season.
Brock Osweiler was in line as the successor for the departing legend of Peyton Manning when he unexpectedly signed with Houston. The motive of money clearly won the QB over, with the Texans shelling out a 4-year, $72 million dollar contract to steal him away from Denver.
Tweets from earlier this year when Brock made this decision show just how shocked Broncos players were:
Shocked I thought Brock wanted to play with us lol

Though Osweiler has not exceeded the expectations of Texans fans and his deal though the first six games this season, the matchup will be just as hyped when the teams kickoff on Monday Night Football next week.
The media got it’s first glimpse of this when Broncos LB Brandon Marshall was asked about facing their old QB:
#Broncos Brandon Marshall, smiling: “It’s Brock. We know Brock. He came from here. And we want to kill him. That’s just what we want to do.”

The Broncos defense will look to get after the quarterback they thought would be theirs and show him what he may be missing on the other side of the ball.
Congrats @bosweiler17! Great for you bro. See u next year ?
