36-16-1 (69.3%) in the NFL since going full time last December.
18-10-1 this season and 7-3-1 the last 2 weeks.

Key thing to know: Broncos have held 8 of the last 11 teams in Denver to 20 points or less.
I think the Broncos’ defense will be too much for Brock at home and the Denver offense starts clicking again with Siemian back, Kubiak back, and two key run blockers healthy again.
Watch out for:
1) Texans on 3rd down – Texans are just 25% this season on 3rd downs on the road. Granted it was vs NE and MIN but DEN will be just as difficult.
2) Texans RB Tyler Ervin. Drafted to be more of a slot receiver/Dexter McCluster role for the team and Bill O’brien will definitely look to use him and Lamar Miller in the passing game like the Falcons were able to do. But everyone’s blowing out of proportion how well the Falcons did vs Denver – Matt Ryan was 15/28 that day with just 1 TD and Julio Jones was held to 2 catches for 29 yards. JULIO JONES. Tevin Coleman had 2 huge plays (1 for a TD) and he finished with 132 yards. Everybody else on the Falcons finished with no more than 3 catches and 43 yards so Denver as a whole did a pretty good job. The problem vs the Falcons was Paxton Lynch throwing a big INT deep in Denver territory and getting sacked at bad times. Trevor Siemian isn’t as turnover prone. I also think media sensation has made Denver’s offense out to be inept or something – Trevor Siemian played 3 full games before getting hurt vs TB and he had 5 TDs 3 INTs and was averaging 252 ypg. He’ll be fine for tonight.
3) Denver’s run game . Broncos will have a tough time this year when they dont establish the run but fortunately they got Virgil Green and Stephenson back last week to help in run blocking. Booker’s also been a great change of pace back for CJ Anderson. Denver should do a better job running the ball tonight.
Look for the Denver defense to unload on Brock all night and for the Broncos’ offense to get back in rhythm now that they’re healthy.
Broncos won 27-9
