He was calling out blitzes, identifying coverages and grabbing control.

"I thought Brock had an excellent week of preparation", Joseph said. But [Sunday], we're not a good football team, offensively, defensively, special teams, whatever. "It felt good to our team".

Following the Eagles' stomping 51-23 Week 9 home victory over the Denver Broncos, Wentz has thrown the most touchdowns in the league this season (23), the fourth best Quarterback Rating (104.1), the fifth most attempts (291) and the 12th best interception percentage (1.7 percent).

He did orchestrate four scoring drives, leading the Broncos to a touchdown and three field goals.

Any hope that Osweiler's promotion to the starting role would be enough of a catalyst to jump-start a dead offense faded quickly. When the Broncos got the ball back near the end of the first quarter, needing to generate some momentum in a game quickly shaping into a track meet, Osweiler locked onto Thomas.

Wentz was 15 of 27 for 199 yards before giving way to Nick Foles.

"Any time you put your team in a position like that, it's disgusting", Osweiler said. "We gotta figure out something fast".

Brock Osweiler will remain the starting quarterback for Sunday night's game against the New England Patriots, Head Coach Vance Joseph announced Monday. When asked if he was sticking with Osweiler, he said "We'll see". Trying to figure out how to make plays.
