Thomas hauls in TD to pad Broncos' lead

Trevor Siemian finds Demaryius Thomas for a 4-yard touchdown to give Denver a 14-6 second-quarter lead over the Texans.


Matt Bowen ESPN Staff Writer 

The Broncos jump to a 14-6 lead over the Texans on Trevor Siemian's four-yard TD pass to Demaryius Thomas. With Texans CB Kareem Jackson playing off-man coverage (and giving ground at the snap), Thomas had a lot of room to work. Run the quick out route for six points. That's stealing.

Broncos have found a little something as they were in a two-back set for four plays on that drive and gained 47 yards on those four plays.

Anderson's TD gets Broncos on the board

C.J. Anderson is barely touched by the Texans defense as he takes the handoff and runs into the end zone to give the Broncos a 7-6 lead.

Broncos with a 10-play drive for the touchdown. They went with two-back set six times in the drive and got the ball to Demaryius Thomas three times in the passing game. Just the kind of drive Gary Kubiak has been looking for.

I wouldn't blame Carl Cheffers and his crew for the rash of holding penalties in this game. There is a lot of actual holding going on. Entering Week 6, 10 of the NFL's 17 officiating crews had called more offensive holding penalties than Cheffers. His crew is not particularly prone to calling them.

Osweiler Booed in return to Denver

Fans greeted Texans quarterback Brock Osweiler with boos as the former Bronco jogged onto the field for the first drive of the game.
