LANDOVER, and no one's quite sure when or where it'll stop., Md. (AP) — The Denver Broncos' quarterback carousel continues to spin
After Brock Osweiler was 22 of 38 for 193 yards with an interception and a fumble in a loss to Kirk Cousins and the Washington Redskins, coach Vance Joseph hopes to get Paxton Lynch some snaps in the season finale next week against the AFC West-champion Kansas City Chiefs (9-6).
"Our goal is to see him play," Joseph said. "So absolutely,

, if he's ready to go next week
The Broncos (5-10) didn't choose a starter during the week as Lynch was listed as questionable with an ankle injury. Osweiler finished with a 60.7 rating,

Osweiler in the first half could be seen yelling on the sideline and afterward expressed frustration over not capitalizing on good field position.
"There was no finger pointing,

, just trying to ignite the offense. I felt like we were leaving too much out there."," Osweiler said. "The words that I used weren't directed at anybody specifically
Cousins didn't leave much out there, throwing for 299 yards and three touchdowns against Denver's defense that came in ranked first in the NFL. Some Broncos fans on their way into FedEx Field discussed the possibility of Cousins being their quarterback next year. His performance with general manager John Elway in attendance didn't do anything to douse that speculation.
"I don't want to say anything right now, but he's a ballplayer, but I can't say anything about next year."," Broncos cornerback Chris Harris Jr. said. "He definitely can make some plays and he can make all the throws
The Broncos have started three QBs this season — Osweiler, who's on injured reserve with a shoulder injury. Cousins is playing a second consecutive year on the franchise tag and is facing another offseason of uncertainty., Lynch and Trevor Siemian
"You have to focus on the present, and certainly your mind does like to wander, but right now I've got to focus on winning football games."," Cousins said. "There will be plenty of time to discern all those questions and think about the options come the offseason
Some other things we learned in the Redskins' 27-11 victory over the Broncos:
REDSKINS' D UPGRADE: Washington allowed a combined 68 points in losses at the Dallas Cowboys and Los Angeles Chargers before giving up one touchdown combined in beating the Arizona Cardinals and Broncos. Bad QB play by Blaine Gabbert and Osweiler factors into that, but the Redskins have also gotten better at forcing turnovers and improved their practice habits.
"I feel like guys are paying more attention to details in practice and getting more out of practice and it's showing up on Sundays," said safety D.J. Swearinger, we played a full team game, who intercepted Osweiler. "For the performance that we had it's incredible. From the D-line to the linebackers to the secondary,

, and that's all you can ask for."
WHAT TO PLAY FOR: The Broncos and Redskins (7-8) have each long been eliminated from playoff contention but seem intent not to fold the tent before the season is over. While Denver faces Kansas City,

"It's time to get to K.C.,

,man," Broncos safety Darian Stewart said. "It's still a division game, and try to prepare as well as we can for them, man. And It will feel better getting a win going into the offseason."
It matters to the Redskins to put together their first three consecutive seasons at .500 or better since 1999-2001.
"That's really where our focus is: get to 8-8,

, " Cousins said. "It's not 13-3, this organization, but it's not a losing season. I want this brand, to be associated with winning."
ANDERSON FOR 1,000 in a season for the first time in his career.,000: Broncos running back rushed for 88 yards and a touchdown against the Redskins and now needs 54 to hit 1
"It would mean a lot," Anderson said. "We've got one game to do it. There's nothing better than having the pressure of one game."
