Osweiler completed 23 of 40 passes for 198 yards with a touchdown and three interceptions in Saturday's 34-16 divisional-round loss to the Patriots. He gained 18 yards on his one rush.

EDGE Analysis

As was the case in virtually every game he started in a considerably disappointing first season in Houston, Osweiler underwhelmed Saturday, and his mistakes ultimately sealed the Texans' fate. The fifth-year pro threw his first pick in the third quarter in New England territory at the 46-yard line, at a point in which the Texans were still facing a manageable 24-13 deficit. His most crucial miscue was the second one, however, as it came early in the fourth quarter after Houston had managed to pull within 24-16. Osweiler's throw down the middle for DeAndre Hopkins was plucked out of the air and returned to the Texans' six-yard line by Logan Ruyan, setting up a game-clinching one-yard touchdown run by Dion Lewis. The error-laden performance was in a way a fitting conclusion to Osweiler's 2016 campaign, one in which his career highs in multiple categories belied the ineffectiveness he displayed over 15 games.

Osweiler completed 14-of-25 passes for 168 yards with a touchdown pass and no interceptions in the Texans' 27-14 win over the Raiders in Saturday's wild-card round playoff game. As a result, he'll start next week's game in New England or Kansas City, according to Brian T. Smith of the Houston Chronicle.

EDGE Analysis

The game plan coming into the game was to lean on Lamar Miller, who had 31 of the team's 44 rushing attempts, but Osweiler effective in spurts. He got comfortable throwing to the tight ends early, then started connecitng with wideout DeAndre Hopkins, and didn't turn the ball over. That was enough for head coach Bill O'Brien to return Osweiler to the starting job he'd lost in Week 14. He was ably assisted by the league's top ranked defense (301.3 ypg), which forced three turnovers. A good complementary game for the Texans, who will need a similar recipe next weekend.

Osweiler and Houston head coach Bill O'Brien each downplayed a loud argument between the two during halftime of last week's loss to the Titans, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.

EDGE Analysis

O'Brien chalked it up to the intensity of the game while Osweiler prefers to keep the incident between himself and the coach. Each said they were focused on Saturday afternoon's playoff game against the Raiders. Osweiler acquitted himself well when filling in last week for Tom Savage, who has been ruled out for the wild-card round due to a concussion. Brandon Weeden, active for the just third time this season, will backup Osweiler on Saturday. We suspect O'Brien will have a long leash, no matter how many intense football conversations he has with Osweiler.

Head coach Bill O'Brien named Osweiler the starting quarterback for Saturday's playoff matchup with the Raiders.

EDGE Analysis

Tom Savage took over as the starting quarterback for the last two games of the season given Osweiler's lackluster play all year. However, Savage suffered a concussion in Week 17's loss to the Titans and has still not passed concussion protocol testing, prompting the team to move ahead with Osweiler under center for the playoffs. The 26-year-old did face the Raiders earlier in the season, completing 26-of-39 attempts for 243 yards, one touchdown, and one interception in the loss. O'Brien said of the decision to start Osweiler, "He's been a pro. He's been studying like he's the starter. He hasn't changed at all. He's ready to go." Savage will be the No. 2 option on the depth chart, should he clear concussion protocol, otherwise Brandon Weeden will assume the role as the backup.

Osweiler completed 21 of 40 passes for 253 yards and a touchdown, and added a second touchdown on a 1-yard run in Sunday's 24-17 loss to the Titans.

EDGE Analysis

Osweiler came into the game at the beginning of the second quarter after starter Tom Savage was removed due to a concussion. He failed to lead the team to any points in the first half, but connected with tight end C.J. Fiederowicz from four yards out early in the third before adding his rushing score late in the fourth. While it's unclear who the Texans will start under center in next week's home playoff game, Osweiler hasn't done much to earn the opportunity with 15 passing touchdowns and 16 interceptions in 15 appearances.

Osweiler was replaced by Tom Savage after going six of 11 for 48 yards while throwing two interceptions in Sunday's tilt with the Jaguars, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

EDGE Analysis

Osweiler has thrown multiple interceptions in four games this season, contributing to his 16 total on the year. The quarterback failed to drive the ball against a lackluster Jaguars defense, prompting head coach Bill O'Brien to make the switch. Look for more updates on this quarterback competition to come throughout the week.

Osweiler was quiet as he managed the Texans to a victory over the Colts Sunday. He finished with 147 yards and an interception, while completing 14 of 24 passes.

EDGE Analysis

Playing with a lead for much of the game, Osweiler was never asked to do too much in the victory. His 24 passes were a season low in attempts. He handed it off 39 times between four different backs as the Texans attempted to hold on to their lead. He and the Texans will look to hold on to their first place standing in the division next week when they take on the last place Jaguars.

Osweiler was sacked twice, hit five times and repeatedly had to escape the pocket in Week 13 as head coach BIll O'Brien called the Texans' pass protection "terrible," Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports. "It's got to get a lot better. It was just not good enough. We've got to do a better job coaching it with the right protections. It just wasn't good enough. Brock was under pressure most of the day and had to run sometimes, had to move in the pocket. It just wasn't good enough," said the coach.

EDGE Analysis

Despite the porous protection, Osweiler had one of his better games of the season. He was able to scramble for 20 yards and posted a season-best 97.6 quarterback rating. But O'Brien doesn't want to rely on Osweiler making plays under duress to win games, so addressing the protection issues will be paramount for the Texans, who have lost three in a row to find themselves in a three-way tie for first in the AFC South. Just as important will be getting Lamar Miller (22 yards, 1.6 ypc in Week 13) going. They have a big road game in Week 14 against Indianapolis, one of the teams tied with the Texans and who are feeling confident dismantling the Jets in Week 13.

Osweiler completed 22 of 35 passes for 202 yards and two touchdowns during Sunday's loss to the Packers. He also added 20 yards rushing on three carries.

EDGE Analysis

Osweiler avoided any major mistakes in Week 13, coming off a poor three-interception performance against the Chargers in his previous start. Questions arose earlier in the week regarding the Texans' quarterback situation with backup Tom Savage in the conversation to potentially start over Osweiler, but coach Bill O'Brien didn't make any changes as Osweiler made a nice comeback effort in Green Bay. His next test will come in Week 14 against the Colts as Houston looks for their seventh win of the season.

Osweiler will be Houston's starting quarterback for Week 13's road game against Green Bay, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.

EDGE Analysis

Texans head coach Bill O'Brien said Osweiler will remain the starting quarterback despite throwing three interceptions and no touchdown passes in a disappointing home loss to the Chargers. Osweiler hasn't been very good on the road this season -- the team has lost four of five while Osweiler has a 67.3 QB rating -- but the Packers' pass defense ranks 21st in the NFL.
