Broncos' Siemian earns midseason captainship, criticism (The Associated Press)

Brock Osweiler’s 5-2 record as Denver’s starter earned him a $72 million contract in Houston. Trevor Siemian went 6-1 in his first seven starts for the Broncos, garnering both criticism and kudos. Siemian threw a pick-6 against San Diego last weekend, his first interception since Sept. 18, but the Broncos prevailed 27-19 largely because the Chargers dropped four other passes that went right to them.
