Texans (4-2) at Broncos (4-2)
7:30 p.m. Monday, ESPN
Line: Broncos by 9
Houston is riding the high of a feverish 14-point comeback after trailing Indianapolis with less than 3 minutes to go.

The Broncos have had an 11-day layoff to mull over their struggling offense that posted 16 points or fewer in their previous two games.
