that the Denver Broncos sent Demaryius Thomas to the Houston Texans prior Tuesday’s trade deadline. Thomas’ first game for the Texans will come in Denver against his former team. As I said Denver Broncos Hoodie , interesting. Houston (5-3) enters Sunday’s game on a five-game winning streak and a pass rush poised to wreak serious havoc on a Broncos (3-5) offensive line that can’t pass protect. Denver, meanwhile, has one win in six games and is in serious need of a win before its bye. As Adam Malnati and I talked about on the latest MHR Radio Podcast, Houston, we may have a problem. We obviously preview Sunday’s game, but also focus on the trade of Thomas. For that we welcomed Laurie Lattimore-Volkmann to offer her thoughts on the move, and she proceed to go on a little (large) rant. Offensive RankingsHouston: Fifteenth in overall offense (379.0 yards), 11th in rushing (123.0), 18th in passing (256.0) and tied for 14th in points (24.6).Denver: Thirteenth in overall offense (380.8 yards), seventh in rushing (133.1), 20th in passing (247.6) and 20th in points (23.5).Defense RankingsHouston: Ninth in overall defense (334.9 yards), seventh in rushing (95.1) Youth Customized Denver Broncos Jerseys , 12th in passing (239.8) and ninth in points (20.9).Denver: Twenty-second in overall defense (373.3 yards), 27th in rushing (135.8), 11th in passing (237.5) and 14th in points (24.3).Here are our keys to the game.Give Garett Bolles help As I said on the podcast, the Broncos second-year left tackle will attempt to not hold J.J. Watt and Jadeveon Clowney on Sunday — eek. Denver has to muster all the help it can get for Bolles or it will be a long afternoon for Case Keenum. — Ian St. Clair Quit holdingShort and sweet. — Laurie Lattimore-Volkmann Protect Keenum from himself If Denver doesn’t find a way to do that facing Watt, Clowney and Whitney Mercilus, nothing else will matter. — Just_JoRoTurnovers The Broncos can win this game if they find a way to get and capitalize on turnovers. Taking the ball away and turning it into points will be paramount to keeping up with the Texans offense. — Adam Malnati Rinse, lather, repeat Denver’s offense needs to focus on rushing and play action against the Texans defense. Defensively the Broncos need to just pin Von Miller’s and Bradley Chubb’s ears back and let the Orange Rush go to it. The Texans’ biggest vulnerability is their horrible offensive line. So go get in Deshaun Watson’s face, and introduce his jersey to the Mile High turf as often as possible. I’m talking a six-eight-sack outing that should be entirely possible with Denver’s pass rush (the Texans have already allowed two seven-sack games). If the Broncos do that one thing, they probably win this game. If they don’t do that one thing, we get the Miami Dolphins treatment. — Taylor Kothe Prove it Word is that Denver players are frustrated because they feel that they’re better than their record shows right now. So they need go out this weekend and prove it against a team that’s warmed up and hot on a win streak. In order to be seen as not the bottom of the league, then Denver needs to actually beat a team that’s not in the bottom of the league or at Mile High in early September when away teams are at a huge disadvantage www.broncosauthorizedshops.com , because that’s literally the only games Denver has won in nearly three years.It’s not some complex schematic adjustment the Broncos need. Just quit beating yourself, and go win a damn game. Quit missing tackles, ruining good plays because of penalties, throwing interceptions, and being stupid in coverage. This isn’t rocket science. You want to win a game? Then play like you want to win a game. — Jeff Essary The MHR Radio Podcast is now on iTunes, Google Play, Spotify, Acast, Stitcher, TuneIn and a few other podcast hosts.

So I would be making this priority No. 1 if I were Joe Woods and Vance Joseph.Coach Joseph talked about it on Wednesday:I hope Denver’s plan mimics what it did in Week 12 of last year against Cook. While the Broncos would lose the game due to horrendous quarterbacking, Cook was held to one catch for two yards.So what did Denver do? It did exactly what we have all been screaming at them to do - ‘sicced’ Justin Simmons on him. It wasn’t quite at the level of Belichick having Talib shadow Jimmy Graham all game, as Simmons wasn’t on Cook 100 percent of the time, but for the most part where Cook went, Simmons followed.On this one, Simmons gave him plenty of cushion, so they test the flat, but he breaks quickly on the route for a two yard gain.This is excellent coverage by Simmons getting a great jam on Cook at the line, and staying in phase the entire route. Cook should have been flagged for pass interference as well Denver Broncos Hats , and he still stopped him.Really good coverage here one-on-one at the goal line, which is where a guy like Cook can really do some damage. The play was initially called a catch but corrected after review. You can’t cover it much better than Simmons did here.This one is my favorite, and doesn’t require much analysis other than “wow.” To be able to undercut a corner route and high point the ball like that for a PBU is so impressive.Over two games in 2017, when Simmons lined up in direct coverage on Cook, the results were six targets, and one catch for two yards.I expect he will be the primary part of the plan for Cook in today’s game. You may not see Simmons line up on Cook every play, but it would be a huge miss by the coaching staff to not utilize him 1 on 1 for a majority of the day.We will see how it plays out and be here for review after the game as the “covering tight ends” saga continues!
