Monday Night Football heads into Denver as the Broncos host the Texans.
Both teams enter play at 4-2 with the Texans coming off a win, while the Broncos have dropped 2 straight.
The Texans were getting booed in the 3rd quarter as their offense trotted off the field for another punt, trailing by 2 touchdowns.
Trailing 23-9 in the 4th quarter, Brock Osweiler showed off why the Texans dished out $72 million dollars for him.
The former Denver Broncos QB, completed 11 of his last 13 throws and added a pair of 4th quarter game tying touchdowns. In overtime, Osweiler connected deep to set up a game winning field goal for Houston.
RB Lamar Miller kept the Texans in the contest as he finished with 149 yards and a touchdown. Miller was the only ounce of offensive firepower the Texans had for 3 quarters.
The task will be tall here for the Texans as the Denver defense is one of the best, especially when they play at home in Denver.
Osweiler will certainly be tested here and will need to come up with some big plays here.
The Broncos will get a little extra rest here by playing on Thursday Night last week, but they have a lot of work to do here.
Denver had just 304 yards of total offense in their loss to the Chargers, as they simply had no movement or rhythm to their offense.
Third downs were also a huge ordeal for this team as they couldn’t move the chains. Denver was just 3 for 13 on third downs. Getting into some 3rd and 4 or lower situations is a key for this team.
Defensively, they will be looking for a bounce back game too. The Denver defense failed to slow down the Chargers attack, consistently letting them pick up their third downs.
Denver has still allowed just 18.0 points per game this season and this is a matchup that favors them. They can certainly cause some havoc for the Texans in the backfield and fluster Osweiler.

4* Free NFL Betting Prediction: Denver -7.5
The Broncos are in a huge bounce back spot here.
At home, where they play extremely well, against an offense that just hasn’t much of a spark. Look for the defense to really cause a lot of fits for the Texans offense, en route to a 2 touchdown victory.
