ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) Vance Joseph's switch of quarterbacks did nothing to stem the tide of turnovers, so the Denver Broncos rookie head coach on Monday changed his offensive architect.

"I want to have a more efficient pass game," said Joseph, who also promoted Klint Kubiak to take over Musgrave's old duties working with the quarterbacks.
