And no matter how well Manning is meshing with his receivers, the beginning of their season is going to make-or-break that team. Six of their first eight games are against playoff teams from last year. The other two are against divisional rivals.
I see what you mean. I just think the Texans are going to give Peyton a welcome back to the NFL on his back.
Just don't see our guys dropping this one. Yeah, it could happen. I just don't think it will.
