Record Before the Game
Houston Texans (4-2, 0-2 Away)
Denver Broncos (4-2, 2-1 Home)
I’m picking the Broncos to bounce back this week. On every sports channel, in every market and in every sports bar. The game headline is the return of Brock Osweiler to Denver. Will he punish the team that he left and expose the Broncos defense? The answer is no! That offensive line of the Texans and weak passing game will get beat up by the Broncos defense. This week the guys will show their dominance as the best defense in the league.

You have the Amazon Firestick and all of the new movies are being streamed on Monday night. You can’t wait to see that new accountant movie starring Matt Damon.

Houston fans waiting to see if Brock Osweiler is worth all that guaranteed money that the team gave him.
Offensive Game Plan
Today, I’m the new offensive coordinator for the Denver Broncos. I have to make all of the decisions on offense. First, we’re running the ball the first two offensive possessions of the game. C. J. Anderson will get the call. By establishing the run, we force the defense to stack the box with eight players which will put the Texans corners in one-on-one match ups on the outside. This will allow quick passes and the slant for Trevor Siemian to get into a groove passing the ball. The run first philosophy is head coach Gary Kubiak’s game plan from Houston and now in Denver.
Defensive Game Plan
T.J. Ward will play the rover position on defense Monday night. The defense has changed the philosophy and scheme this year. They started strong but the last two games looked as if they were lost. Now, if I were the defensive coordinator, I would run more stunts and blitzes against the Texans. They have a weak line that gives up an average of 2.5 sacks a game. You can’t expect the Texans to change their ways on Monday night. It will look competitive for the first three quarters, but Houston will find a way to give the game away.
Broncos by 10 in this one. Houston will put up a fight and that’s about it! The Broncos defense will get back on track racking up sacks, hit and interceptions.
