Houston Texans: Predicting the remaining schedule 2019
Week 14: at Denver Broncos
Though no game is “easy” in the NFL, the game against the Denver Broncos could be one of those games where they Texans can flex their muscles, especially after facing the New England Patriots a game before.
As of entering Week 11, the Broncos are 3-6 overall and in last place in the AFC West, and by the time this game arrives, don’t expect the Broncos to be much better than they are right now.
Though their overall record isn’t the greatest, they do have some exciting players the Texans must stop to win the game. One of those players is Phillip Lindsay, who entering Week 11 has 584 yards rushing with five touchdowns on 118 attempts.
Also don’t forget about Courtland Sutton at wide receiver, as he has a good chance to be one of the most exciting wide receivers in the NFL one day, as he has 44 receptions for 692 yards and four touchdowns after nine games played in 2019.
The Broncos also have made a change at stating quarter as Joe Flacco is on the IR for the rest of the season, and that moved up Brandon Allen to the starter’s role. He’s played in just one game this season, with a 12-of-20 performance for 193 yards passing with two touchdowns and no interceptions, but has been sacked three times.
There is an old friend on the Broncos’ defense in Kareem Jackson, so he knows the Texans well, but even on the road, the Texans are a more experienced team and should leave with the win.
