Brock Osweiler is making his return to Denver tonight on Monday Night Football, so naturally there are a lot of feeling going around.

ESPN started airing this promotional video — set to Third Eye Blind’s “How’s it Going to Be” — over the weekend, and oh man why does it seem like you and your ninth-grade girlfriend just broke up again?
In all seriousness, it’s a pretty big game for both sides, and not just because of the “Osweiler faces his old team” storyline.
The Broncos (4-2) are all of a sudden tied for second in the AFC West. The Raiders (5-2) lead the division, while the Chiefs are now 4-2. Denver needs to snap this two-game losing streak to keep pace.
The Texans (4-2) sit in first in the woeful AFC South. The 3-4 Colts and Texans are behind them.
The game starts at 6:30 p.m. at Sports Authority Field. You can watch it on ESPN.
