Texans vs. Broncos: Houston's Biggest Winners and Losers

Well, that one certainly did not have me act like a nervous wreck in the final quarter of play. I think.

The Texans improved to 3-0 for the first time in franchise history after stopping a late fourth-quarter Peyton Manning comeback that Texan fans are far too acquainted with.

Before the heart-stopping Manning comeback was in its works, the Texans dominated nearly every facet of the game. 

They established the run, passed the ball effectively—including two bombs to Andre Johnson and Kevin Walter—prevented Denver from getting any momentum on the ground and pressured the quarterback all game long.

Though the final score was not an indicator of just how much the Texans controlled the game, the Texans still have lots of room for improvement. For starters, the pass coverage certainly needs some work. Johnathan Joseph and Co. benefited several times from drops by the Bronco receivers, and the secondary blew several coverages.

All in all, the Texans believe they are one of the best teams in football, and they clearly proved that in their performance against the Broncos.

Here are the Texans' biggest winners and losers from Week 3.
