The Denver Broncos will play host to the Houston Texans in an AFC Monday Night Football matchup, as quarterback Brock Osweiler will make his return to Denver to play against the team that drafted him.
This offseason, Osweiler spurned the Broncos’ offer to make him their starting quarterback, and instead signed a huge deal to go to Houston.
Osweiler struggled the first few games of the season, but finally looks comfortable under center for Houston. He will be looking to put on a show in front of the Broncos faithful on Monday, as he tries to move his new team to 5-2 on the young season. Denver is also looking to get to 5-2, and will try to erase the memory of the bad loss they suffered to Atlanta the last time they were home.
In that game, the Broncos were forced to start rookie Paxton Lynch at quarterback, after Trevor Siemian sprained the AC joint in his non-throwing shoulder.
Siemian returned last week against the San Diego Chargers, but the Broncos lost a close one on the road in a Thursday Night Football matchup. Denver has had a week and a half to get ready for the Texans, and they should be more than ready.
The Texans have played well as of late, but going up against the Broncos on the road is a tall task. Houston was able to run the ball well against the Colts this past week, as Lamar Miller had his best game as a Texan. They are going to need him to step up big time against a Broncos defense that is regarded as one of the best in football.
