Texans @ Broncos

Recommended Posts



The Broncos lead this all-time series 4-2, winning the last two meetings. Only one quarterback matchup has occurred more than once in the series -- Houston's Matt Schaub versus Denver's Peyton Manning. Case Keenum will be the sixth different Broncos QB to start versus the Texans in the seven meetings.

Houston is the first team since the 2000 Steelers to open the season 0-3 and reel off at least five straight wins immediately thereafter. Big plays keyed last Thursday's win over Miami, as the Texans' offense had three plays of 40-plus yards after managing only one such play in the season's first seven games.

Denver is the only team in the league in 2018 averaging at least 130 rushing yards per game and allowing at least that many. The Broncos are on pace to become the first team in league history to average at least 5.00 yards per rush on offense and allow at least 5.00 per carry on defense.

Deshaun Watson had five TD passes and no interceptions last week against Miami, completing a career-best 80.0 percent of his passes (16 of 20). Watson has thrown touchdown passes in 13 consecutive starts; in franchise history, only Matt Schaub has had a longer streak: 16 straight starts in 2010-2011.

Case Keenum has been intercepted in eight straight starts to begin 2018, the longest such streak to open a season by any QB since Denver's Peyton Manning in 2015 (nine straight). Keenum, who was intercepted only seven times in 481 attempts with the Vikings in 2017, has thrown 10 picks in 288 passes in 2018.

Demaryius Thomas ranks second in Broncos history in receiving yards (9055) and receiving TDs (60); after 125 games with Denver, Thomas figures to make his Houston debut after this week's trade. He can become the second player ever to catch a touchdown pass for and against a single team within the same season (Chris Chambers, 2009 for and against San Diego).

Crazy that Demaryius Thomas gets his revenge game like 5 days after he gets traded.

Anyway Texans win, the Broncos are so garbage right now.

:Texans: 31

:Broncos: 14
