Brock Osweiler played like doodoo on Monday.

(Editor’s Note: This article had a much ruder headline before, but has since been changed to not deride the female gender or their genitalia. Thank you.)

Dude showed up to his old stadium and played like the tallest stack of doodoo this side of the Mississippi. That’s a lot of ground to cover, and I’m sure Osweiler’s shadow reaches that much ground when the sun starts to set on his candy ass. In any case, the Denver Broncos defense talked big like they would bring it and they did bring it, though Brock Osweiler managed to escape without a sack.

The Houston Texans brought it to the Denver Broncos as best they could, and for what it’s worth gashed the Broncos weak defensive interior to the tune of 124 rushing yards. They gave Osweiler the best chances they could, setting him up with great field position at times. Again and again, Lamar Miller and Alfred Blue kept the drive going, only for Osweiler’s passing to ruin things.
