Jeff Legwold's keys for the Broncos in their game Sunday against Houston:

Quote:
1 Drive the Carr. If the Broncos let Texans quarterback David Carr, below, stand and deliver, it will be another long day in Denver. Trouble is, blitzing Carr is a difficult proposition because he's the third-rated passer in the league (114.6) against this blitz this season. The Broncos front four needs its best outing of the season.

2 Throw the blanket. The Texans are athletic at wide receiver, so the Broncos defensive backs will be tested. The Falcons went after Kelly Herndon on Sunday, and Denver has to keep the Texans' three-wide look from hurting them too badly.

3 Don't be the second. The Texans have had only one 100-yard rushing game from a back this season - Jonathan Wells' 105 yards against Oakland - and the Broncos can't give up a second one. Denver has allowed a 100-yard rusher each of the past two weeks and lost both games.

4 Have another Reuben. After three 100-yard games in his first three starts, Reuben Droughns' impact was limited when the Broncos lost the lead against Atlanta. The Broncos need to pound away early at a Texans defense that allows 4.7 yards a carry.

5 Character test. This is the one. This is why the Broncos added veterans to the locker room this off-season, to rebound from the rough spots. Now is the time, because the Broncos can't afford to go into the bye week with a loss.
