Houston Texans vs Denver Broncos: Things to look forward to

Publish Date: 09/18/2022
Fact checked by: Mike Goodpaster

On Sunday, the Houston Texans will face the Denver Broncos at Empower Field in Mile High, Colorado, in an NFL Week 2 game. This will mark the first meeting between the teams since the Broncos defeated the Texans 38-24 in September 2019.

The Broncos have won two of the last three games between the two teams, while the Texans have won one. There are a few things to keep an eye for during the game on Sunday, particularly on both teams’ rosters situations.

Dameon Pierce, the Texans’ running back, was a little quiet after only carrying 11 times for 33 yards in their previous game against the Indianapolis Colts. Lovie Smith, the head coach of the Texans, claimed that Pierce’s ball wasn’t enough and defined it as a “mistake.”

“The plan of course was for him to get more,” Smith added.

In terms of his performance, Pierce admitted that there was something he could have done much better and expressed gratitude to his coach for giving him another chance.

“It’s always great to have a coach who has confidence in you,” Pierce said.

Meanwhile, due to personal reasons, the Texans’ center Justin Britt will be unavailable for Sunday’s game. According to reports, Britt’s role will most likely be filled by Scott Quessenberry, Jimmy Morrissey, or Justin McCray.

“I don’t go into starting lineups of exactly who’s going to play. We’ll look at our options and go from there,” Smith said.

Meanwhile, the Texans’ QB Davis Mills, completed 23 of his 37 passes for 240 yards while having no interception last week. Ejiro Evero, the defensive coordinator for Denver, praised Mills’ play, calling him a “good player” with the skill “to throw accurately.”

Mills said in a statement that he aims to outperform his last performance.

“Continue to stay efficient, get through my reads, be ready to step up in the pocket and use my legs a little bit to help out the offensive line and open some guys up on the defense.”

The Texans see Broncos’ quarterback Russell Wilson as a threat as well, according to Houston safety coach Joe Danna, who once said that Wilson “knows the game.”
