Look For The Houston Texans To Exploit Vulnerable Denver Broncos Secondary

Ron Chenoy-US PRESSWIRE

The Denver Broncos have several play-makers on defense. Upfront, they have defensive end Elvis Dumervil and rookie Derek Wolfe. The linebackers are led by pass rusher Von Miller. Some analyst argue that Miller may be the best player on the entire roster.

The secondary is anchored by shut down corner Champ Bailey. Given that the Broncos have impact players at each level of their defense the Houston Texans will have to be creative in the way that they attack them.

The best palce for the Texans to go is against the Broncos safeties. The starting safeties for the Broncos are Mike Adams and Rahim Moore. Adams is a nine year veteran in his first year with the Broncos that has also played for the Cleveland Browns and San Francisco 49ers.  Adams is not an elite player as he has ranged from a low of 29 tackles to a high of 74.

He has never had more than 4 interceptions in a season and has several seasons without a single pick. Moore is in his second year out of UCLA. Last season he managed 31 tackles and and 1 interception in 15 games. He is an inexperienced corner that will continue to learn on the job. Neither player is at the talent level of recently retired Broncos safety Brian Dawkins.

The lack of play-makers at safety for the Broncos is a great match up for the Texans. In Arian Foster and Ben Tate, the Texans have two running backs that can match up well against the Broncos. Last week against the Jacksonville Jaguars both were a factor in the passing game.

The Texans are also strong at the tight end position. Owen Daniels and Garrett Graham could have a lot of room to work against these safeties. The Broncos may be able to slow down the running game and use Bailey to take Texans wide receiver Andre Jonson out of the game. Their weakness at safety will allow Houston to move the ball against them with short passes to the backs and tight ends.

Eli Manning Has Interesting Reaction To Broncos' Super Bowl Win

Eli Manning was captured on video making an interesting face when the Denver Broncos cemented their Super Bowl 50 win. The Internet firmly believes Eli is upset that Peyton now has two rings just like he does, but this is simply an overreaction. Eli was clearly nervous throughout the game, and his odd facial expressions are more indicative of a sign of relief than anything else.
