Default Predict the score for the game

I've seen this on another board I use, so why not try it on this one. Everyone make a prediction on the score, and whoever gets the closest can start the prediction thread for the next game. And in case there's a tie, predict the leading rusher and how many yards gained.

My prediction:

Texans 27
Broncos 24

Leading rusher: Wali Lundy, 80 yards

Broncos 35 Texans 14. Sorry guys but the depth on the Broncos is really good. Jake is better than David, and Cutler is hell of alot better than Sage. Texans will get better, but the Broncos are way to much of a better team all round. Plus we're in Denver. This is going to be a fun game to watch. These are my two teams...hmmm....who to cheer for?

Texans 24 and Broncos 21. Both defenses are going to be tough and it's not going to be that high of a scoring game, because of the climate up there in Mile High.

The leading rusher (for the Texans) will be Morency with 85 yds. The leading passer (at least for the Texans) will be Rosenfels, but not because he's the better QB.

We'll get one sack in the second half. It won't be Mario and it probably won't be Peek either.

It will take Kris Brown to keep us in the game.

Default Sorry Y'all

Sorry y'all, as much as I'm hoping the Texans win this game, I don't think they will. Unfortunately, I think we will be brought back down to earth (But it's been fun up in the clouds the last couple of weeks!) with this game. The Broncos have too much depth and are well coached in their system. I'm just hoping Kubes has them ready to play and it's a good close game, and we won't embarrass ourselves like the Titans did.

Broncos 30
Texans 28

I think it will be a tuff game, we havent faced a team of this caliber yet, but I think Kubiak will have a few tricks up his sleeve .

20-17 Texans

Carr is gonna see alot more action this week & that should be the difference not to mention Kubiak knows what Denvers going to do. Still this would be another huge step for the Texans to make after the embarrasement last season.

HOUSTON 30 DENVER 27

The key i think will be how our 2nd team D does against denvers 2nd team O which is a tremendous challenge for us. I still take us in a close one

17-13... we wont score alot but i think carr will finally take full control being able to play 2-3 quarters.

Denver's #1's are better than ours, and I think their depth is as well. I'll say Denver 31-21. Don't get me wrong, I want us to win, just giving my honest opinion. I think we will look improved over the last two weeks, we're just running into a better team.

I doubt very much that we win this one. Broncos are have more talent and more depth and are a legit SB possibility team. If we stay within 10 points of them I will be surprised.

Broncos - 30

Texans - 17

We will be in Mile high stadium, using their systems to a large degree. And they have been doing it a lot longer. The score is also based on the fact that I expect their starters to play one half to three quarters.


Sorry to throw cold water on some of you, but I think we may get a wake-up call in Denver this weekend.

I believe Shanahan and Kubiak are going to go toe to toe on this one...

You think Sage will out perform DC in one quarters worth of playing time?

Broncos: 24
Texans: 10
The Broncs have just looked too darn good compared to us thus far.

I think we are going to win this one. Denver's first team didn't score against Detroit for whatever reason, but they did well against Tennessee. I think we know what makes Plummer tick, and we have the defensive line to do something about it.

This hurts me to say but the Texans will be playing a team that has real chemistry and continuity in both players and coaching and they have real, quality, depth. In addition the broncos defense, obviously, sees a similar offense everyday in practice.
Our secondary will be challenged beyond their collective capabilities, I think, especially once the starters are out.

Broncos 34
Texans 13

If we controll the line of scrimmage, on both sides, and Morency/Lundy go-off rushing as a result and Morency/Lundy pick up the blitz, we could make a game of it, even win.
