Denver’s WRs vs Texans DBs


The WRs of the Broncos are, for the most part, effective blockers. They can hold their own and bring the defensive back to a standstill. The DBs are physical and don’t give up easily, so the WRs will have to keep at it until the play is past them.


A lot of quick passes will help counter the Texans rush. These WRs are excellent at catching a short, quick pass and turning it into something. When the Broncos do go deep, they have speed at their WRs that can beat the slower DBs of the Texans. But they have to make sure they have the right match-up. If they don’t, the Texans are aware and will go for the aggressive play, an interception.
