With Ryan Tannehill out of action for the past few weeks, and with no clear timetable for his return, veteran quarterback Brock Osweiler has been starting under center for the struggling Miami Dolphins and performing admirably.
But when Tannehill returns, if he does at all this season, Osweiler doesn’t want to hand over the starting gig.
“Every single week, in my eyes, is the Super Bowl. Every single week is the biggest game out there because this sport is so special and you never know when you’re going to get another opportunity,” Osweiler said, according to the Miami Herald’s Adam Beasley.
“So when you do get the opportunity, shoot, I play every single play like it’s my last. I put laser focus on every single play, and I’m playing as hard as I possibly can so hopefully I never have to go back to the bench.”
An argument can be made that Osweiler has performed better, overall, than Tannehill, but both quarterbacks aren’t the long-term answer in Miami, nor should either be a long-term starter in the league. However, both could be valuable long-term backups for Miami, or another team down the road.
For now, Osweiler will try to make his case to be the starting quarterback in Miami until Tannehill makes his return.

Texans’ Demaryius Thomas Wants To Continue Playing Career
“My main priority right now is getting back healthy. I can still play, man. I’m not thinking about retirement. I just don’t know where it will be,” Thomas said, according to the Houston Chronicle’s Aaron Wilson.
“I told them I would love to finish my career here, but we’ll see…This is what we have to deal with as players and guys in the locker room. I hope my appearance and being around the guys and talking to a couple of guys helped. I don’t want to say I helped that much play-wise, but leadership-wise, I think I helped.”
