College Football Pick’em
Week Two Recap
Talking the business of sports
Considering their sizeable disadvantage in the spread, the Houston Texans can expect to have a real challenge on their hands on Sunday. They will take on the Denver Broncos on the road at 4:25 p.m. ET at Empower Field at Mile High. Houston will be seeking to avenge the 38-24 loss they suffered the last time these two teams played Dec. 8 of 2019.
The Texans were hampered by 89 penalty yards against the Indianapolis Colts last week. They finished on equal footing with a 20-20 draw.
Speaking of close games: the Broncos had victory within their grasp but couldn’t quite capture it this past Monday as the team lost 17-16 to the Seattle Seahawks. No one had a standout game offensively for Denver, but WR Jerry Jeudy led the way with one touchdown. QB Russell Wilson ended up with a passer rating of 144.90.
Most of the squad’s points came courtesy of special teams, which contributed ten. K Brandon McManus delivered a perfect 3-for-3 game.
The Texans will no doubt be looking for a more decisive result in this contest.
Thank you God!
Good team win GO #BroncosCountry !!
