The Washington Redskins will finish off their 2017 action at FedExField on Christmas Eve against the Denver Broncos.

The home field finale will be televised on FOX with a 1:00 p.m. EST kickoff.womens Dustin Colquitt Jersey

The Redskins will be enjoying a two-week stint of home games, while the Broncos will be in the midst of a two-game road trip. Denver defeated the Indianapolis Colts 25-13 last Thursday,Authentic Cairo Santos Jerseyand will be competing in their fourth East Coast game of the season.

In Denver’s latest game against the Colts, who regained his starting job after a brief period on the bench, the still developing quarterback controversy gained another exciting chapter. After quarterback Trevor Siemian, injured his shoulder after scrambling in the red zone and was taken down by linebacker Barkevious Mingo.'womens Eric Fisher Jersey,

In his place, Osweiler made his way back to the Broncos earlier this season, and flashed some of his 2015 potential Thursday night, head coach Vance Joseph once again brought in Brock Osweiler, the once expected successor to Peyton Manning. After spending time in Houston and Cleveland, throwing for 194 yards and two touchdowns.Authentic Dee Ford Jersey

With quarterback Paxton Lynch nursing an ankle sprain and Siemen missing time because of his shoulderwomens Albert Wilson Jersey, the Broncos will likely turn to Osweiler to lead the Broncos against the Washington defense.

rushing for 138 yards on Thursday. Denver has also thrown tailback Devontae Booker into the mix,Luckily for Osweiler,Authentic Laurent Duvernay-Tardif Jersey if only sparingly, running back C.J. Anderson has been healthy and dependable as ever,womens Ron Parker Jersey and Osweiler himself showed off his speed on an 18-yard scamper that ended with a diving touchdown.

with 849 receiving yards on the season and 14 plays of 20 yards or more. In the slot,At receiverAuthentic Eric Fisher Jersey,the Broncos also have two rising stars in Bennie Fowler III and Cody Latimer. Latimer was the only Broncos receiver to score a touchdown Thursday, Demaryius Thomas and Emmanuel Sanders have been the top two targets for the Broncos this season. Thomas has the edge downfield, and was outgained by Thomas by only nine yards.,womens Cairo Santos Jersey

Defense has been the name of the game for Denver in 2017, with Marshall leading the team with 92 tackles on the year.'Authentic Dustin Colquitt Jersey Miller remains a quarterback magnet with 10 total sacks, with the Broncos ranking near the top of the fewest yards allowed per game in the NFL. Familiar faces like linebackers Von Miller and Brandon Marshall continue to play prominent roles, which puts him in the top 10 of NFL defenders.womens Dee Ford Jersey,'

In the secondary, along with cornerback Aqib Talib,Authentic Albert Wilson Jersey.', the Broncos took a hit when safety Justin Simmons was moved to injured reserve the day before the team's game against the Colts. Simmons,<womens Laurent Duvernay-Tardif Jerseyaccount for Denver’s two pick-sixes on the year. Cornerback Chris Harris Jr. and safety Darian Stewart lead the team in interceptions in Simmons’ absence with two each.

Denver and Washington have met only a handful of times,Authentic Ron Parker Jersey.'Authentic Allen Bailey Jersey, when the Redskins defeated the Broncos in Super Bowl XXII. The two teams have not met on the field since 2013, with the Broncos leading the series 7-6. One of Washington’s six wins came in 1988,womens Allen Bailey Jersey,when Denver defeated Washington 45-21.
The last starting battle on the Broncos roster came down to the final hour.

It was Max Garcia who trotted onto Sports Authority Field at Mile High at left guard with the Denver starting offense to face the Los Angeles Chargers on Monday night. Garcia and veteran Allen Barbre, had been battling for the starting spot over the last month, acquired in a trade with Philadelphia on the eve of training camp, and the competition was too close to call as the Broncos released their most recent depth chart last week.

Even in the days leading up to the opener, Broncos coach Vance Joseph wasn't ready to announce which of the two linemen would get the start.

"They're both working there," Joseph said. "They both may play."

Sure enough, Barbre took over at left guard on the Broncos' second series.

The Broncos began the season with three new starters on the offensive line: left tackle Garett Bolles, both of whom each played in every offensive snap last year, right guard Ron Leary and right tackle Menelik Watson. Garcia and center Matt Paradis, are the holdovers.womens Menelik Watson Jersey,

New Nuggets power forward Paul Millsap was among the Broncos' visitors Monday night.womens Domata Peko Jersey,'

When the Nuggets made their free-agency pitch to Millsap at his home outside Atlanta on July 1,womens C.J. Anderson Jersey Broncos linebacker Brandon Marshall tagged along with Nuggets brass and talked to Millsap about what it was like to win in Denver.

" said Millsap,"He said a lot,Authentic Shelby Harris Jersey and he was telling me how great the city is,Authentic Shaquil Barrett Jersey>, who signed a three-year, $90 million contract shortly after that meeting. "We had a nice dinner, how great the fans are. He just told me that I'd love it, and so far it's been great."

Jimmy Butler,womens Ronald Leary Jerseya Minnesota Timberwolves forward who is a close friend of Broncos wide receiver Demaryius Thomas, also attended the game and sported an orange bandana. Golden State Warriors star Draymond Green also was in the stadium. So was former professional wrestling star Bill Goldberg.Authentic Menelik Watson Jersey

Injuries ravaged the Broncos' defense during training and preseason and they entered Monday's opener thin on the line. Starting end Jared Crick (back) and reserve Zach Kerr (knee) were both ruled out Friday and were among the team's seven inactives.

Their absences moved Shelby Harris,Authentic Jamaal Charles Jerseyinto the starting lineup and prompted the team to promote rookie Tyrique Jarrett from the practice squad in place of Kyle Peko, a fourth-year end, who was waived Saturday and was signed to the team's practice squad Monday after clearing waivers. Jarrett and Adam Gotsis served as the lone reserves against the Chargers.

"We had a nice dinner, womens Jamaal Charles Jersey, how great the fans are. He just told me that I'd love it, and so far it's been great."

the head scratcher that is the Jamaal Charles situation has been overlooked.womens Jermaine Gresham Jersey,There have been so many problems with the Denver Broncos this season

250 merely for dressing in the final two games. Total payout if he does dress: $2.5 million.womens Corey Peters Jersey,The Broncos have paid Jamaal Charles as if they expected him to be real close to Jamaal again: $2.34 million so far with a chance to make another $156

Yet, Charles is averaging a mere 6.6 touches and 30.4 combined rushing and receiving yards a game. Those are journeyman, fill-in numbers.womens Derrick Shelby Jersey,

,He was in for just two plays and had zero touches in the Broncos’ 25-13 win against the Indianapolis Colts on Thursday night. This couldn't have been what the Broncos initially had in mind when they signed Charles to his one-year contract in May.Authentic Grady Jarrett Jersey

,“I’m not tripping, man,’’ Charles said after the Broncos’ win. “I want to play. It hurts I’m not playing. It hurts my feelings. I mean deep down, it hurts. But I’m supportive of my teammates. That’s all I can do.womens Frostee Rucker Jersey

“Ten years, if this is my last year, this is my last year if nobody wants me.womens Alex Mack Jersey

“But I’m just happy I can continue to dress up every week. That’s a dream right there. I’ve got good guys in front of me. So, at the end of the day, it’s not my turn yet. I’m patiently waiting. I’ve got two good guys in front of me and I’m going to control what I can control.’womens Dontari Poe Jersey

Charles, , who turns 31 in 10 days, is a running back who rushed for 1,509 yards in 2012 with Kansas City and had 70 catches for 693 yards in 2013. He’s rushed for 7,556 yards in his career on an NFL-record 5.4 yards per carry. Add in his receiving totals and he’s produced more than 10,000 yards from scrimmage.womens Wes Schweitzer Jersey

But the Broncos only saw this Hall of Fame-caliber running back in brief flashes. Charles' contract included $1.25 million worth of incentives but he has yet to hit his first modest threshold of 500 yards rushing and receiving combined.womens Grady Jarrett Jersey

He currently has 296 yards rushing and 129 yards receiving for 425 combined yards from scrimmage.Authentic Corey Peters Jersey

is now leaping over defensive backs in his second season.,Mostly, Charles has watched as starter C.J. Anderson has a chance for his first 1,000-yard rushing season and Devontae Booker, who missed the first three games with torn wrist ligaments

“It’s no different than the Patriots when you watch the Patriots,’’ said Broncos head coach Vance Joseph. “They’ve got three guys each game. So, whoever’s hot gets touches and each game we have a plan for all three guys and how the game proceeds determines who plays more.Authentic Frostee Rucker Jersey,

“C.J.’s our pounder. Book’s our run-pass guy and Jamaal’s our sweep, outside run, screen guy. It depends how the game proceeds. I’ve been pleased with Jamaal. When he’s been healthy, he’s been explosive. And the plan was to limit his touches so we didn’t lose him midseason.’’Authentic Jermaine Gresham Jersey

,It was understandable the Broncos initially babied Charles’ workload after he suffered two torn ACLs in his career and had limited playing time because of knee surgeries his final two seasons in Kansas City.Authentic Dontari Poe Jersey

Charles’ playing time declined.,But even as the offense struggled during an eight-game losing streak that quashed the team’s playoff hopes

Charles is averaging just 4.9 carries and 1.6 catches a game for the Broncos. And those numbers figure to decrease as the Broncos plan to dress rookie back De’Angelo Henderson in the final two games.Authentic Alex Mack Jersey

Which is part two of the Jamaal head-scratcher: Why, after the Broncos were eliminated from playoff contention, was Henderson not playing if they weren't using Charles?Authentic Wes Schweitzer Jersey

“I’m just happy to win, get my work in and go back home.’’Authentic Derrick Shelby Jersey, go to work every day, kiss my kids,’’ said Charles. “I work my butt off every day. I can’t complain. I can only control what I can control. Wake up in the morning, go to work

What seemed like wishful thinking a week ago is suddenly a reality for C.J. Anderson. After his 158-yard rushing performance against the Colts last Thursday, Anderson is within 142 yards of his long-held goal of 1,Authentic Kendall Wright Jersey, Anderson would be the first Bronco since Knowshon Moreno (1,,000 in a season. If he reaches it03 in 2013 to hit the mark.

And he very well could with two games to go.Authentic Tom Compton Jersey,

“I think it’s a good milestone for myself, but also for up front and our team as a whole,Authentic Deonte Thompson Jersey, it still feels good to have certain milestones reached,” Anderson said. “Same thing for D.T. (Demaryius Thomas) and keeping his streak going. Even though we’re not having the season we want toAuthentic Marcus Cooper Jerseyand hopefully we can reach that goal.”

Thomas is 160 receiving yards shy of having 1,000 for the sixth consecutive season,womens Danny Trevathan Jersey, he’ll join Torry Holt (2002-07) as the only two players in NFL history to record at least 90 catches and 1, which would tie Ring of Famer Rod Smith for the longest such streak in team history. With another 17 catches,000 receiving yards in six consecutive seasons.

Anderson and his teammates have stressed finishing the season on a high note for both their team and themselves as they face an offseason of uncertainty.,Authentic Dion Sims Jersey

“I can only control what (No.) 22 can control,” Anderson said. “Me personally, I believe I’m a damn good back in this league, so whether it’s here or somewhere else I’ll be fine.Authentic Quintin Demps Jersey

“You try to let the young guys know, don’t worry about next year. Finish this year first. But to get to next year, but it’s going to come up quick. It’s going to come up really, start thinking about some of the things in the offseason you need to work on and need to do better. People think the offseason is going to be long, really quick. We’ll be back here before you know it.”

Hoping for Disney. Nose tackle Domata Peko was selected as a Pro Bowl alternate after his first season as a Denver Bronco. Peko had been named an alternate in years prior when he was in Cincinnati,womens Kendall Wright Jerseybut never in his 12-year career has he been called upon as a replacement.

one that seemed like a move just for depth or ‘in case of emergency’.,The Denver Broncos made an interesting roster move earlier in the 2017 season when they signed former second round pick Cyrus Kouandjio to a contract

But was it more than just that?

I discovered something on OverTheCap.com that I found interesting.womens P.J. Williams JerseyAfter initially thinking the Broncos signed Kouandjio to just a one-year contract to see if they would need him in 2018

meaning the team and front office potentially have plans for him beyond this season.Authentic Ryan Ramczyk Jersey,The Broncos actually signed Kouandjio through the 2018 season

Kouandjio was let go from the Detroit Lions this year and was let go from the Bills prior to that despite being a second round pick in 2014.

and chose Alabama over pretty much every other school in the country.,Kouandjio was a big time recruit coming out of high schoolwomens Alvin Kamara JerseyT

He played some as a freshman at Alabama,Authentic Marcus Williams Jersey but was injured his first year on campus. In 2012 and 2013,Authentic Alvin Kamara Jerseyand was dominant in the running game in the 2013 National Championship game against Notre Dame., he became the starting left tackle for the Crimson Tide

After a junior season where he was named a first-team All-SEC selection,womens Drew Brees Jersey, and proved to be a little bit less athletic in pre-draft workouts than many had hoped or anticipated.,Authentic Alex Anzalone Jersey, Kouandjio left school for the draft

At 6-foot-7, which is far too slow for the NFL level, 322 pounds, and was a second round draft choice by Buffalo., even with a 1.93 second 10-yard split. Kouandjio had proven himself on the field, Kouandjio ran the 40-yard dash in barely under 5.6 seconds, however,Authentic Drew Brees Jersey.

After playing pretty well when given opportunities for the Bills,Authentic P.J. Williams Jersey, Kouandjio couldn’t stay healthyAuthentic Marshon Lattimore Jersey, but Kouandjio was unable to win a backup job behind Taylor Decker.,womens Marshon Lattimore Jerseyand was ultimately released. The Detroit Lions kicked the tires in the offseason

but the timing could have also perhaps been due to Kouandjio getting healthy from a hip surgery.,>womens Ryan Ramczyk Jersey,''he Broncos came calling after placing Menelik Watson on injured reserve

Fitting the profile of a long-armed' Authentic Michael Thomas Jersey heavy-handed mauler in the run game the Broncos have preferred at the right tackle position in John Elway’s reign, but has not been able to put together a string of good health.,womens Michael Thomas Jersey, Kouandjio is a player that has obviously got some talent

The Broncos are perhaps betting that he can get back to full strength in 2018,womens Alex Anzalone Jersey, if not a dark horse starting candidate at right tackle., and at least offer them an option on the offensive line as a swing tackle

Draft analysts knew Kouandjio would perhaps be a project coming out of Alabama, but getting him in the building with Jeff Davidson (the Broncos’ offensive line coach) and into a great strength and conditioning program could be exactly what this young player needs to get his career on the right path., despite their history of cranking out NFL-ready talent. He was always more of a mauler than a technician at tacklewomens Marcus Williams Jersey,

and the Broncos will have a full offseason to evaluate his practices from this year,Kouandjio has been in the NFL since 2014, and is still just 24 years old. Hope is not lost for him yet, and make sure he has every chance to compete in 2018., get him in shape

"The way we are losing,womens John Johnson Jersey like we are at the bottom of the NFL.

Nothing is promised after the season if this team does not start competing.

Losing is one thing. Losing in this fashion is something else. The Broncos have lost six of the eight during this stretch by double digits. No NFL team has allowed more first-half points. The Broncos have essentially lost by halftime.

"I don't know if you all understand how much losing bothers us," running back C.J. Anderson said. "You are all not in it. It's like going to a job everyday that sucks. Just sucks."

The reality of a 3-9 record is sobering. It marks only the Broncos' sixth losing season compared to seven Super Bowl berths during owner Pat Bowlen's 34-year run. The last quarter represents auditions and revelations. Who is talented enough to stay and will fit in the reshaped locker room where there will be massive turnover?

"It's been hard," safety Darian Stewart said. "But we have to play for each other and our coaches."womens Gerald Everett Jersey,

Right guard Ron Leary (back) did not practice on Thursday, though outside linebacker Von Miller and cornerbacks Chris Harris Jr. and Aqib Talib should populate the list. ... Nose tackle Domata Peko (knee) is out of his brace, increasing the likelihood he will miss his second consecutive game. He told Denver7 the team is being cautious. "It's tough. I think I have missed only one game in my career prior to this because of injury. But we need to be smart." Leary is considered a core player moving forward, though I would suggest he should shift back to left guard,womens Sean Mannion Jersey,' his natural position. ... The Broncos began voting for The NFL Top 100 this week. There will not be as many players from this year's team, but did not practice. He has not ruled out playing Sunday.

Football finally reciprocated the love to Harris and his teammates on Denver’s defensive line. The group set the tone in Sunday’s 23-0 victory over the Jets, which ended two months of frustration and unrewarded effort.

Chris Harris Jr. on Adam Gase's Onside Kick Decision: 'He's Mad at Somebody'womens Randall Cobb Jersey,

But never mind the Broncos’ Super Bowl 50 season. That season is two years and a lifetime away..womens Jim Kelly Jersey,

The point is even this year, who is generally considered the league’s best overall receiver.womens Cam Newton Jersey Thomas is statistically right there in several significant categories with Atlanta’s Julio Jones

According to Statspass, Thomas has 126 targets this season and 7 drops. Jones has 126 targets and 7 drops. There have been 25 “poor” throws to Thomas,Authentic Kawann Short Jersey, and 21 poor throws to Jones. Thomas has 73 catches; Jones has 76., according to statisticians

let’s pick the good out of the 19-10 loss to the Chargers on Dec. 3.,We’ll get to the autopsy of the Browns’12th loss in their 12th game this season in a few paragraphs. But before that

but he deserves credit for selecting tight end David Njoku in the first round in April. Njoku is quick,I have ripped Sashi Brown for his inability to evaluate talent often since the start of the 2016 season, he’s strongwomens Cody Kessler Jersey, runs good routes and has sure hands. He scored the Browns’ only touchdown against the Chargers. He leads the Browns with four touchdown catches and set a team record for rookie tight ends in that category.

And you know what is significant about the Njoku pick? The Browns traded up to get him. They traded their second-round pick (33) and fourth-round pick (10 to the Packers for the 29th overall pick.,womens Duke Johnson Jersey,

namely quarterback Carson Wentz in 2016 and Deshaun Watson in 2017 and paying for those mistakes long after the accumulated draft picks are spent.,womens Shon Coleman Jersey,Trading up can result in acquiring impact players. Trading down results in missing impact players

The hope for a better future with Josh Gordon in the lineup was another positive from the game with the Chargers. Gordon was targeted 11 times. He caught four passes (which does not mean he dropped seven) for a team-high 85 yards. Sometimes DeShone Kizer overthrew Gordon and sometimes he underthrew him.womens Danny Shelton Jersey

one of the best cornerbacks in the NFL,Casey Hayward,was tight on Gordon throughout the game. But the evidence is there. If Kizer and Gordon improve their timing,womens Nate Orchard Jerseyas they should with more practice timebetter days should be ahead for the Browns’ offense.

Falling to 0-12 on the same day the 49ers won means the Browns are closer to clinching the first pick in the draft for the second straight year. The 49ers and Giants are 2-10. Four games remain.womens Cameron Erving Jersey

>> Browns vs. Chargers photo galleryAuthentic Cody Kessler Jersey

OK,womens Myles Garrett Jersey let’s get to the 12th edition of why the Browns are winless., now that the good is out of the way

If Hue Jackson has any chance of returning in 2018 as head coach — he is 1-27 — team owners Jimmy and Dee Haslam should demand he hire an offensive coordinator. It should be an offensive coordinator well-versed in elementary math.

The Browns were trailing, when Jackson called a timeout with 4:59 remaining facing third-and-goal at the 15. The play clock was a factor., 19-10,Authentic Shon Coleman Jersey,

Unless Jackson had a nine-point play no one in the history of the NFL knew existed, called for a pass in the end zone to Gordon, Njoku, Corey Coleman or Seth DeValve, he should have saved the timeout,and if it didn’t work,Authentic Danny Shelton Jersey kick a field goal because the Browns had to score twice no matter what happened on the third-down play.

Nor is this the first time Jackson has made questionable decisions in the heat of the moment. Space,Authentic Cameron Erving Jersey, does not permit a list of the others.,, even on the Internet

Kizer lost the ball on a strip sack on the play that followed the timeout and he threw an interception the next time the Browns had the ball. It was reminiscent of the Jacksonville game when he turned the ball over on his last three possessions. Kizer has to protect the ball better. The focus,Authentic Xavier Cooper Jersey>, should be on Jackson and his scoreboard and time management., though

allowing the Chargers only one touchdown in four opportunities inside the 20. But those opportunities were at the end 10,womens Xavier Cooper Jersey,The Browns’ defense played better in the red zone 11, 10 and 12-play clock-grinding drives.

Chargers punter Drew Kaser punted only twice because the defense could not get a stop. The same thing happened last week in the 30-16 loss at Cincinnati. Bengals punter Kevin Huber punted only twice.Authentic Duke Johnson Jersey.

but that doesn’t tell the story. The Chargers had the ball nearly 10 minutes longer than the Browns.,The Browns defense ranked ninth in the NFL heading into the weekend after finishing 31st at the end of 2016. That is something for defensive coordinator Gregg Williams to brag about,Authentic Myles Garrett Jersey,

The Browns do show signs they are getting better. It just isn’t showing up on the scoreboard.Authentic Nate Orchard Jersey

starting with hiring an offensive coordinator next season.,Some errors are correctable
Darrin Simmons, the Bengals’ meticulous special teams coordinator who has taken Cincinnati’s kicking game to places it’s never been during his 15 seasons, is shepherding another first with the help of new AFC special teams Pro Bowl second alternate Clayton Fejedelem.

He’s pretty sure he’s never had a core special teamer do what Fejedelem is doing this season. Play more scrimmage snaps (357) than teams snaps (317).Authentic Andy Dalton Jersey

“It’s of lot football,” Simmons said Wednesday. “But he’s had to do it because of the injuries and because he’s effective … He’s not a big guy (6-0, 205 pounds), but he plays tough,Authentic Tyler Kroft Jersey, he plays hard,and it’s important to him. He’s a guy coming from no place.”

With starting safety Shawn Williams battling a hamstring injury,< Fejedelem has had to back off his kicking-game snaps to start five games. Now you can wonder how many those 13 special teams tackles would be. The only other player in double-digits is tight end C.J. Uzomah with 10. Authentic Paul Dawson Jersey,

“It’s like Nick Vigil,” Simmons said of the outside linebacker who has missed the last three games. “He still leads the team in tackles (77-75 over cornerback Darqueze Dennard).”Authentic Vontaze Burfict Jersey

Simmons isn’t surprised that Fejedelem didn’t place in the top ten of the fan voting (“Nobody can pronounce his name”),womens A.J. Green Jersey, but it does restore his faith in the system. He’s not very happy that perennial Pro Bowl special teamer Matt Slater of the Patriots made it on rep after playing in just seven games. But Fejedelem got close with coaches and players, whom make up the other two-thirds of the vote.

“That’s a big honor because besides playing for my family and for yourself, you play for pride,<Authentic Joe Mixon Jersey” Fejedelem said. “When other coaches and players that you’re battling with on Sunday see that, that’s the ultimate goal. To get them to respect you.”

Fejedelem,womens John Ross Jersey, who went from Illinois walk-on to a seventh-round flyer, doesn’t mind doing double duty. Between the injury to Williams and a pre-season knee problem with the other starter, George Iloka, Fejedelem knows both safety spots and is confident enough with the system that he says “I don’t miss a beat when I’m in there.”

But clearly he’s got a knack for special teams. Even when he’s playing defense he’s usually punter Kevin Huber’s personal protector.Authentic John Ross Jersey

“You can look at it both ways that it’s the quarterback, just like when you’re playing safety,” Fejedelem said.womens Andy Dalton Jersey,

He’ll continue to take snaps doing both and sees where it leads. More safety? More teams? And can he one day replace Slater? Simmons thinks if he didn’t play as much defense this season he would have had chance to be the top guy.

“If I got that fan vote,” Fejedelem joked, “that would have been nice.”Authentic Tyler Eifert Jersey,
