The Eagles will face a new starting quarterback on Sunday with the Denver Broncos turning to Brock Osweiler and benching Trevor Siemian.
Siemian has thrown six interceptions in the past three games — all losses. The Broncos are looking to reverse their fortunes with Osweiler, a former second-round pick by the Broncos who was a high-prized free agent acquisition by Houston last season. His career has taken a nosedive since becoming the Texans' starter. They traded him in a salary dump to Cleveland, who released him before the season. Osweiler now gets a chance again with his original team.
The Eagles started their game planning on Tuesday knowing there was a possibility that the Broncos would make a change.
"Every week you've got to get ready," defensive coordinator Jim Schwartz said Tuesday. "Just life in the NFL, first play of the game you might be seeing a backup. So, you always have to have an eye toward that. I think it's probably a little bit different this week. First of all, with them coming off a short week, who knows what'll happen. We'll be prepared for any of the three quarterbacks that come."
