Whether you believe Brock Osweiler is the quarterback of the future for the Broncos or you’re ready to kick him to the curb this offseason, one thing is for certain: Few athletes have the ability to light up Twitter like he does.
That was the case again Thursday night as he rode to the rescue for the Broncos in relief of an injured Trevor Siemian.
Osweiler engineered a 25-13 comeback victory for the Broncos — one in which he connected for two touchdown passes and galloped for an 18-yard score of his own.
Here is how Twitter reacted to his big night in Indianapolis:

The #Broncos have Brock Osweiler in at QB. What an absolute joke. If he leads Denver to a comeback win tonight I’ll change my twitter banner to an Osweiler tribute tomorrow! Safest bet I’ll ever make. 😂 #DENvsIND pic.twitter.com/I1G5sbRYFB

The entire defense jumped off the bench in celebration when Brock dived into the endzone. TD reenergized the whole team. #DENvsIND

I never thought I’d see Brock Osweiler do a Mile High salute. What a time to be alive

Brock Osweiler gave the Mile High Salute after his TD run. Best Osweiler moment as a Bronco?

Brock Osweiler’s 99.2 Total QBR tonight is the highest in the NFL for any QB in a game this season (min. 20 action plays). It’s the highest Total QBR in a game for a non-starting QB in the 12 seasons for which ESPN has Total QBR data. pic.twitter.com/z8DUU4qfhw

54-yard touchdown by former Ohio State tight end Jeff Heuerman on Thursday Night Football. Longest catch of his NFL career and second career touchdown.pic.twitter.com/bgh0lgXVaO

Best quote out of Broncos locker room came from tight end Jeff Huereman on his 3Q TD catch: “Brock threw an unbelievable ball. I could have caught it with my teeth.”

Brock Osweiler is a significantly better QB than Trevor Siemian, and that’s saying something.
— Benjamin Allbright (@AllbrightNFL) December 15, 2017
I’ll say it again
Brock Osweiler is such a better QB than Trevor Siemian

“Good for you, Brock Osweiler!” was one of my favorite calls of the season

I’ll tell you what, in the right circumstances against a 3 win team in a completely meaningless game Brock Osweiler could be ok

So #Browns are paying $15.225 million for Brock Osweiler to throw TDs for Denver & Chris Collinsworth is now talking about Hue Jackson fixing his mechanics on TNF. The hits keep on coming #SeasonOfMisery
