MHR Review: How to Watch 5 Things

The Denver Broncos travel to Houston Texas to face the Texans in the second preseason game of the year for both teams. Starting quarterback, Peyton Manning sat out last week's preseason opener but is expected to go a quarter or a quarter and a half in tonight's game.

Also making their preseason debuts are wide receiver Demaryius Thomas, tight end Owen Daniels, linebacker Brandon Marshall, and possibly linebacker DeMarcus Ware. Look for wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders, cornerback Chris Harris Jr., and linebacker Danny Trevathan to sit out tonight's game.

It doesn't look like the Broncos offensive line will have to worry about All-Pro defensive end J.J. Watt tonight. I asked Lance Zierlein if Watt will play tonight, and he doesn't believe he will. So rest easy Broncos fans, Peyton Manning will not have to worry about Watt tonight.

As for predictions, I will always pick the Broncos to win. I think we'll see Manning throw 2 touchdowns, and C.J. Anderson will get one as well. Osweiler will come in and connect with Cody Latimer for a touchdown in the third quarter. The Broncos defense will continue getting after the passer tonight. Look for Shane Ray to have a big night and come away with 2 sacks and a forced fumble.

Prediction: Broncos 31, Texans 10.

What is your prediction, Broncos Country?
