The Broncos know they are facing a good team and I expect them to give better effort this week. Last week I think the Broncos were affected by the short week after the Monday Night game. It sure will be nice if the Texans can pull it out. They will be tied for the division lead if they do.
Best division record. That gives them the tie breaker and the undisputed lead
