Wow.

Just wow.

I mean...WOW!

Two weeks in a row of being completely surprised by this Broncos team has me so jacked up about the future - make that “K-JACKed” - it’s hard to be eloquent in explaining it.

So I won’t even try. I’ll just let the players’ and team tweets tell you - beginning with the quote of the year from my favorite Bronco (*Warning: NSFW).

It all started with a great game plan - of which the Texans players became all too aware too late to make up a 35-point deficit.

And although the offense couldn’t score after midway through the third, its beatdown prior to that was too much for the Texans to recover.

For once, it was a game that both the offense and defense played close to their best football, knocking off an 8-4 playoff contender in their house.

And no one was happier about that than former Texans safety Kareem Jackson who played like the Pro Bowler he deserves to be, notching an interception as well as a touchdown after Alexander Johnson forced a fumble that Jeremiah Attaochu picked up and then handed off to K-Jack.

Texans fans were none too happy about it, ya’ll.

And it was glorious.

But Broncos fans could not get enough.

Nor could K-Jack’s teammates.

Jackson and the entire Broncos’ defense held Deshaun Watson and the Texans’ offense to three touchdowns, sacking Watson three times, intercepting him twice and forcing one fumble.

Although Watson and DeAndre Hopkins were a threatening duo throughout the second half, the Broncos’ D kept Houston’s high-octane offense from ever getting into serious striking distance.

But it was the offense that really took charge of the game, scoring on all of its first five drives in the game.

And that came from some seriously young energy.

And so here we are.

5-8.

And it never felt so good to get a win in a what is no longer a lost season.
