Denver Broncos vs. Houston Texans: Broncos' Preseason Week 3 Game Preview

The Denver Broncos will return home Saturday night to battle the Houston Texans. The Broncos will be playing fresh off their 34-point drubbing of San Francisco on the road.

The Broncos and Texans had some joint practices during the week, and this game should be a good test for both teams.

Still, they are two teams going in opposite directions.

The Texans are a team in rebuilding mode with journeyman quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick. On the other hand, the Broncos are ready to make good on what they couldn't accomplish last season, looking to return to the Super Bowl and getting the victory this time.

In two preseason games, the Broncos have outscored their competition 55-16. Their two opponents happen to be the two teams that played in the NFC Championship Game last season.

Yes, it is only preseason, but there is no denying how good this Denver offense looks. Shockingly, it could be even better than it was last season when the team broke several NFL records.

Against Houston, the Broncos will face a team with some of the most talented players in the league on defense. It will be a good challenge for Peyton Manning and his offense to get a rhythm going against them.

With it being the third preseason game, long considered the "dress rehearsal" for the regular season, both teams will want to play at their top level.

That makes things so much more interesting, preseason game or not.

Here, we have a full preview of this game including injuries, matchups to watch and predictions. Kickoff is scheduled for 9 p.m. ET.
