The Denver Broncos (3-5) have gotten through the most brutal part of their schedule in 2018, but are two games under .500 as they host the Houston Texans (5-3) who have won five-straight games.
With Demaryius Thomas being traded to the Texans, they’ll also have to contend with a talented and motivated player in DT while down multiple players on defense this week. It’s going to be a dogfight that the Broncos offense will need to show up big in.
If they lose this game, we could see Vance Joseph find his way to the unemployment line during the Bye. Either way, the intrigue in Denver has mounting with each tough defeat the team takes to the chin against better teams.
