ENGLEWOOD, Colo. — The Broncos are riding high again this week, following Sunday’s dramatic 30-24 victory over New England.

The Broncos became the first team since 2004 to beat two teams with records of 6-0 or better, in the same season. They previously knocked off the Green Bay Packers on November 1st.

Now, they prepare for division rival, the San Diego Chargers.

With some rumors swirling about Brock Osweiler being the starting quarterback for the rest of the season, Coach Gary Kubiak is denying them. He said their goal is getting Peyton Manning healthy again and back on the field.

“Nothing’s changed on where we are heading this week. Brock is our starter this week, we are all in getting ready for San Diego and we are week to week trying to win the next football game and absolutely nothing has changed,” Kubiak said.

Osweiler said he’s not thinking about how long he’s going to be the starting quarterback, he’s just working on preparing for the Chargers.

“I’m focused on our game plan being a good teammate and doing whatever I can, while playing quarterback to get a win on Sunday,” Osweiler said.

C.J. Anderson is the AFC Offensive Player of the Week; he said the key to leaving San Diego with a win is coming out strong as team.

“Just start fast, don’t start slow, keep on the outside, let them stay on the outside and focus on the task on hand. We have a good division team they always play us tough,” Anderson said.

The Broncos selected safety David Bruton Jr. as their Walter Payton NFL Man of the Year award recipient. This award recognizes a player for outstanding leadership both on the field and in the community.

Earlier this year, Bruton founded the David Bruton Jr. Foundation, which supports youth reading programs. Bruton’s books, the main program of his foundation, helps low-income children in grades k-3 become strong readers through tutoring and by providing books to underfunded schools, libraries and classrooms.



A quick injury update: DeMarcus Ware was able to practice lightly on Wednesday and Peyton Manning got his cast off. Now, he’s in a boot and will start his rehab. They are still going day by day to see when he can return.
