After winning their first two games to start the season, the Denver Broncos are tumbling, having won just one of their last six games to find themselves at 3-5. The Texans, on the other hand, are sailing on a five game win streak. One of the main reasons for this win streak is the Texans have played teams that have to run the ball to have success and can’t spread the defense out to take advantage of Houston’s issues at the cornerback position.

This is another one of those games for the Texans today. The Broncos are second in rush offense DVOA and are going up against the best run defense in football. Case Keenum has already regressed to his mean of bad. So if the Broncos are going to make something happen in this one, it will probably be because of Bradley Chubb and Von Miller spinning, ripping, and speed rushing Juli’en Davenport and Kendall Lamm into oblivion and turning the pocket into a hornet’s nest for Deshaun Watson.
