Excitement is at an all-time high in Bronco Country as the regular season draws near.
This third preseason game is of the utmost importance, as many starters will most likely play right until the end of the first half, and then some. With Denver gearing up for another Super Bowl run, this will be the last time anyone sees competitive play among numerous starters until September 7, when the Broncos host the Indianapolis Colts to start the regular season.
While we’ll still see “vanilla” defenses and pretty basic offensive play, the competition and individual battles between the Texans and Broncos will undoubtedly be at a regular season-like level.
