Week 2 in the NFL is all about reunions. Five different head coaches will face off against their former teams or colleagues — or both. The biggest reunion will be in Kansas City, where Andy Reid will be on the opposite sideline as his one-time quarterback and former offensive coordinator, Doug Pederson, against the team Reid coached from 1999-2012, the Philadelphia Eagles.
Here’s who else is destined for some pregame small talk on the opposing sideline.
The Broncos want to win, like every team, with a great defense and an unknown-to-average quarterback, relying on the defense, turnovers, field position, run game, and efficient quarterback play. Last season, the Broncos had the defense, sort of got the turnovers (+2), but no run game and a sporadically efficient passing game.

In 2016, Siemian completed 59 percent of his passes, had an 18-10 TD/INT ratio and averaged a low seven yards per pass attempt. Also telling, Siemian completed only 57 percent of passes on third down. The better quarterbacks’ completion rates in that situation range from the high 60s to low 70s. Now not all of those result in a first downs; however, the higher the quarterback completion rate is on third down, the more likely the success.

It was a competition in name only. This was Siemian’s job, and through two weeks, the Broncos have been rewarded by sticking with Siemian.
As I started to study Siemian, two things stood out. First, he’s got a little swagger in the offense now. Second, he shows that swagger on third downs.
