Couple of good finishes in the early games
So just a quick update...Sunday ticket hasn't started their coverage of the Texans-Broncos game...we'll fire it up as soon as they do
OK and we are ready for kickoff in Denver
Houston will kick it off...Broncos will receive
It's out of the back of the end zone for a touchback
So Peyton Manning will look to improve on last week's woeful performance
1st and 10 from the 20...Willis McGehee takes the hand off and goes right up the middle for a gain of 13
1st and 10 Broncos from their own 35...Manning throws incomplete on a swing pass to McGahee
2nd and 10 Broncos...Manning hands to Willis again and that's a gain of 3 yards
3rd and 7 Broncos from their own 38...Manning from the gun misses a wide open Jacob Tamme...I think the pass was tipped
Denver will be forced to punt the football
Great punt...Holliday takes the kick at the 6 yard line but is forced out of bounds
So Houston takes over deep in their own territory
1st and 10 Texans...Schaub is taken down in his own end zone for a SAFETY!

Not the start Houston was looking for as they give up 2 points on their first play from scrimmage
It's Denver's first safety in their last 67 games
So Broncos take the free kick back to their own 40 yard line...great field position for Peyton and company
1st and 10 Denver...Manning completes to Decker for a gain of 5 yards
2nd and 5 Broncos...Manning hands to McGahee and he'll get it close to the sticks but he's just shy of the first down

2nd and 10 Denver...Manning looks to the end zone for Joel Dreesen, he gets tangled up with Daniel Manning but there's no call!
3rd and 10 Denver...Manning hits McGahee with a screen pass ad he'll pick up 6 yards but no first down
Denver will bring out the kicking team
