Broncos vs. Texans: Five Predictions for Regular Season Preview

3 of 7

2. The Offense Will Flex

The offensive gameplan, for the most part, should be vanilla. The Broncos aren’t going to pull out all the stops in a preseason game just to beat the Texans but Peyton Manning was pretty ticked off at practice this week. I would expect him to want to come out and shut up at least D.J. Swearinger, who picked him off in practices and got a bit of a big mouth.

I think the Broncos offensively will make sure the Texans know who’s boss before they let up or put Osweiler in the game.
