Brock Osweiller will face his former teammates Monday night on ESPN when the Broncos play host to the Texans on the network’s weekly NFL showcase Monday Night Football.

Monday night’s matchup between the AFC rivals will have equal importance for both teams. The Broncos come in to Monday night’s game in the heels of a tough 21 – 13 loss to San Diego while Houston will be looking to add another notch to its “W” column after last week’s 26 – 23 win over Indianapolis.

A win will be especially important for either team because of the teams’ current standings.  Houston currently leads the AFC South division, and another win for the Texans would pad the team’s lead over the Titans, who currently sit second in the division at 3 – 3.

The Broncos are currently tied with the Oakland Raiders atop the AFC West standings at 4 – 2. So a win for Denver would either give Denver the division lead or keep the teams tied depending on the outcome of Oakland’s matchup against Jacksonville on Sunday.  A loss by one or either team would be just as impacting.

Sean McDonough will have the call for Monday Night’s game live from Sports Authority Field at Mile High in Denver. He will be joined in the booth by his broadcast partner Jon Gruden for additional commentary.  Reporter Lisa Salters will be on the sidelines with all of the latest in-game news and interviews.
