Osweiler: Broncos didn’t panic

Denver quarterback Brock Osweiler says the Broncos offense "never panicked" during their 30-24 overtime win over New England.

The Patriots entered Sunday night's prime time clash at Mile High undefeated, but, a 48-yard touchdown run from C.J Anderson handed Bill Bellichick's team their first loss of the season and Osweiler praised his offensive team-mates for keeping cool under pressure.

"There was no panic on the offensive side of the ball," Osweiler said.

"We just kept going out there and doing our job one series at a time. We started a little slow. We started picking up momentum as the game went along."

"One of the last things that we said before we finished meetings was that no matter what happens in the first three quarters, it's going to be a 60-minute game. That held true tonight with a little extra bonus time."

Osweiler, who was starting only the second game of his career, also praised the team's battling nature and said that the determination was key in defeating Tom Brady and co.

"The thing that I think our offensive group did was that we stuck to our rules that we've been coached to do, and we just battled through it," Osweiler said.

"It wasn't always pretty, but, I think, as long as you're willing to just continue to fight and fight throughout a game, you'll always hang in there.”

The 25-year-old also revealed that he changed the Broncos run play at the line just before Anderson sent the home crowd wild, but was quick to shift the praise onto the offensive line for creating the lanes for a game winning score.

"We were trying to run the ball [to the] weak [side]. They gave us a specific defensive front that we can't run the ball into, so I checked to our second play that we called in our huddle. The line did a hell of a job and C.J. did the rest."
