Osweiler completed 22-of-41 passes for 131 yards and a lost a fumble in Houston's 27-9 loss to Denver on Monday night.
Another road game, another Houston loss. The Texans have scored one meaningless touchdown in three road losses this season, getting outscored 85-22. Osweiler has a 58.9 rating outside of Texas, but he's hasn't been much better at NRG Stadium in Houston (83.2 rating). Houston is dead last in the NFL with nine offensive touchdowns.

Hunter hauled in two of four passes for 25 yards during Sunday's loss to the Dolphins while seeing the field for 53 of 57 offensive plays.
Hunter picked up a start in this one due to the banged-up nature of the rest of the receiving corps, something that might continue with Marquise Goodwin (concussion) being yet another add to that list. It's worth noting that starter Robert Woods (foot) could come back this week, so Hunter's situation remains fluid.
