The Houston Texans are back on the road for Week 9 as they take on the Denver Broncos at Mile High Stadium.
The Houston Texans at Denver Broncos game took a unique turn on Tuesday, just before the end of the NFL trade deadline, when the Texans traded for Demaryius Thomas of the Broncos. That means the Texans enter Week 9 with one of the Broncos’ all-time greatest players now on their roster.
It is interesting the Broncos (3-5) traded Thomas to their Week 9 opponent, and in doing so maybe they’ve given the Texans an advantage as Houston goes for their sixth consecutive win of the season. Trading a fourth round pick (they also exchanged seventh round picks) for Thomas is a good deal for the Texans. Houston doesn’t have to keep Thomas after this season with an potential out for the 2019 season where he’s due $14 million according to Spotrac.com.
As for the game on Sunday, the Texans get a late afternoon Nov. 4 game against the Broncos with an announce crew of Tom McCarthy and Steve Beuerlein according to 506Sports.com as the game will air on CBS with a scheduled 4 p.m ET kickoff time.
For those who live in the Denver area along with being a Texans fan, or for fans of the Texans who want to travel to watch their team, tickets are available at VividSeats.com. As of Wednesday afternoon the lowest price single ticket for the game was $69.
On DirectTV, the Texans at Broncos is scheduled to be on Channel 712, and on local CBS stations for those in the local coverage area. On Demand, the game will be available at NFL Game Pass.
With the Las Vegas experts at OddsShark.com seeing the Broncos as a -1 favorite this Sunday, the Texans (5-3) at Broncos has a great opportunity to be a closely played game, and even more it will be a good was to measure where the Texans stand right before their bye week.
