Brock Osweiler, the six-foot-eight backup Denver Broncos quarterback, was inserted into the game against the Kansas City Chiefs.
Peyton Manning was apparently benched in favor of Osweiler.
Manning has reportedly been dealing with foot and rib injuries. Manning didn’t practice this week due to lingering injuries.
Manning performed poorly against the Chiefs, throwing four interceptions against the Chiefs. However, Manning became the all-time leader in passing yards, passing longtime Green Bay Packers quarterback Brett Favre.
Osweiler, 24, was drafted in 2012 in the second round. He threw his first career touchdown against the Oakland Raiders in December 2014. The Idaho native played college football at Arizona State University.
This season, Manning has played poorly by his standards. The 39-year-old quarterback leads the entire NFL in interceptions.
Who the hell is Brock Osweiler?

After two snaps, Brock Osweiler’s already had a better game than Peyton.
