He also ran for an 18-yard touchdown, as well. Obviously Paxton being a young guy, we want to see him play more.

Brock Osweiler helped lead the Denver Broncos to a 25-13 win over the Indianapolis Colts Thursday night. So that part will have some bearing there.

Siemian was five of nine for 67 yards before injuring his left shoulder on a sack from Barkevious Mingo.

Last night's game earned a 7.4 out of 13 in metered market results, which makes it a season low for the broadcast on CBS and NBC and the simulcast on the NFL Network. It's worth noting he missed a couple games past year with a left shoulder injury, and had surgery last offseason.

Even though Osweiler played well off the bench Thursday, Denver could opt to give Lynch the final two starts to see what type of progress the second-year signal-caller can show before the team is forced to decide the future of the position in the offseason. Joseph said he will not require surgery and the plan is for rest and rehabilitation.

The only player who has been ruled out for the game is guard John Miller, not a surprise as Miller hasn't played since the first half of the season.

About the only thing the Broncos are lacking is consistent quarterback play.

Lynch suffered an ankle injury last month against the Oakland Raiders but "should be fully cleared by Sunday", Joseph said.

"We had a great rhythm tonight", Osweiler said.

After a Colts field goal, Osweiler marched the Broncos 75 yards on 11 plays, capping the drive with a an 18-yard touchdown run after having an apparent touchdown pass nullified by a penalty. Osweiler came in and went 12 of 17 for 194 yards and two touchdowns for a passer rating of 147.7. "He took care of the football, that's going to be a long and hard conversation".

Osweiler, who had three starts earlier this season before he was moved aside for Lynch to start against the Raiders, was asked following Thursday's win if he believed he had earned another start.
