Brock Osweiler will start once again for Monday night's game against the Bengals, while Peyton Manning focuses on recovering from a torn plantar fascia.

The decision comes after conversations Kubiak had with Manning earlier this week.

Improving performance of the entire offense in the second half will be a priority this week after the Broncos were outscored 36-0 after halftime in 3 December games.

"He's contributed a great deal, yeah. He's very much involved," Kubiak said Monday of Osweiler. "He had a lot of good ideas [Sunday]. He's doing everything that we ask him to do and he's doing it because he wants to do it."
