Brock Osweiler, who was booed by fans in Denver each time he came onto the field Monday night, said he was not surprised by the crowd's reactions to his return.
Osweiler was playing in Denver for the first time since leaving to sign a four-year, $72 million contract with the Houston Texans during the offseason.
"I was definitely not surprised by that," Osweiler said. "I assumed I'd get a lot of boos. In fact, I thought it would be a little bit louder with those boos."
Osweiler finished 22-for-41 for 131 yards without a touchdown in the loss. He also lost a fumble in Houston's 27-9 loss.
"I think there was so much that was built up about myself and the Broncos in this game," Osweiler said. "And at the end of the day, it was the Houston Texans versus the Denver Broncos. We came up here tonight. We did not play a good enough football game to get this job done."
