Denver has something to prove in front of their home crowd, and we have something to prove to ourselves following the dismal performance against Pittsburgh. This week's Preseason game usually is the most interesting one, because it is traditionally the longest preseason action the starters get to see. With Dominick Davis coming back, I'd look for us to establish dominance running the ball - and Carr being the one of the first starters on the bench (because he has played really well so far, and has nothing to prove). The only problem is, Andre is sitting this game out (apparently) over the death of a family member - and we will be without him. IT will give us a chance to see some more of the other receivers fighting for action.
I believe Houston CAN win (of course), but our main objective will simply be to correct the problems that were glaring at us after last Saturdays "glorified practice" against the Steelers. Stay healthy, correct the problems, adjust some attitudes, gain some confidence - that is what we will be looking for - and that may not translate into a preseason win.
