The Denver Broncos probably would not have won Super Bowl 50 if not for Brock Osweiler.
Though the backup quarterback did not play in Sunday’s 24-10 win over the Carolina Panthers, his six-game run as the team’s starting quarterback — of which the Broncos won four — helped keep the team afloat and in the running for the AFC’s No. 1 overall seed, which they earned en route to the big game.
So, while Osweler may not have had much of a hand in the final game of the season, he certainly deserves to celebrate as much as anyone else on the team, and making it better for him is that there are a couple of fellow Arizona State Sun Devils on the team with him.
Along with Osweiler, ASU is represented by defensive back Omar Bolden (in picture with Osweiler) and receiver Kyle Williams.
Bolden, who joined the Broncos the same season as Osweiler, tore his PCL in the Broncos’ Divsional Round win over the Pittsburgh Steelers and missed the rest of the game. Williams missed the entire season after suffering an Achilles injury during training camp.
