How The Broncos Stack Up Against The Texans
Drew Lock took over as quarterback for the Denver Broncos last week and led the team to a home win.
The second rounder from Missouri completed 18 of 28 passes for 134 yards, two touchdowns and an interception in his solid NFL debut.
Lock and Denver (4-8) now travel to face the AFC South-leading Houston Texans (8-4) at 11 a.m. on Sunday.
Lock should have opportunities through the air, as Houston ranks 28th in the league in passing yards allowed per game.
While the Broncos are hoping Lock can end the revolving door at quarterback, the Texans boast an MVP candidate at signal-caller in Deshaun Watson — who has thrown for 3,133 yards and 23 touchdowns so far this season.
