The Broncos fell behind big in this game, just as they did on Monday night against Atlanta. But much like they did in that game, the Broncos forged a comeback that fell just short.
Trailing 31-11 entering the fourth quarter, the Broncos scored two touchdowns in the period to get within six points, needing just one more score to win in improbable fashion.
They got the ball back with under 30 seconds to play and with no timeouts remaining; they weren't able to do much as the Texans escaped Sports Authority Field with the victory, the first time they have started a season 3-0 in franchise history.
While the Texans are one of only three teams still unbeaten, the Broncos dropped to 1-2. Despite the outcome, there were still some good players for the Broncos—which this article will recognize.
