Osweiler To Start Third Consecutive Game For Miami Dolphins

On Thursday evening, Brock Osweiler will start his third consecutive game for the Miami Dolphins at Houston.

Head coach Adam Gase said the 27-year-old quarterback will get the nod in place of Ryan Tannehill.

Osweiler is 1-1 as a starter filling in for the injured Tannehill. The seventh-year veteran has thrown 654 yards and six touchdowns this season, leading Miami to a 31-28 victory on Oct. 21 against the Chicago Bears. 

Osweiler completed 22-of-31 passes for 239 yards and two touchdowns in a losing effort to the Detroit Lions last Sunday.

"He's done a really good job," Gase said Monday. "

Thursday night's game against the Texans will pit Osweiler against his former team.

Osweiler signed a four-year, $72 million contract with the Texans in 2016 but lost the starting job after throwing a franchise-record 16 interceptions.
