The month of October consists of Halloween and many spooky stories. For the Denver Broncos, they seemed to play scared the past two weeks.
However, no story gets better in the month of October then the return of Brock Osweiler to the Mile High City. The Denver Broncos, on the other hand, faltered the past few weeks to gain any sort of momentum giving opponents a glimpse of hope.
It is imperative for the Broncos to start early and sustain that energy for the rest of the game. After Trevor Siemian’s underwhelming performance Thursday and due to an injury, it is unclear who starts against the Texans. Yet, the expectation is Siemian will start, in my opinion. Look for him to respond in a nice performance.

Many of the flaws in Osweiler’s aerial attack is holding the ball too long that gives the Broncos’ Orange Rush to pressure the ex-teammate. Shane Ray is emerging as a legitimate threat as a pass rusher this season and in the absence of the DeMarcus Ware.
Meanwhile, Von Miller is on another planet this year and entering Defensive Player of the Year talks close to mid-season. Jared Crick, formerly of the Texans will sack Osweiler and perform well against his former team.
Jonathan Joseph is back in the Texans lineup, but what a welcome it will be for the stellar cornerback. He will be facing Emmanuel Sanders and Demaryius Thomas in most offensive sets. Joseph will be tested early and often, in my opinion to see how healthy he is playing. The Texans cornerback position took a significant hit in the loss of Kevin Johnson. In that loss, look for Sanders and Thomas to play exceptionally well.
