Host of "The Drive" on Denver Sports Station 1043 The Fan Zach Bye joins Next Up to discuss how important the Houston Texans and Denver Broncos matchup is on Sunday, especially since this could effect both teams' chances on playing in the postseason. "This is a playoff game for the Denver Broncos," Bye said.
The Denver Broncos had a rough start to the season with losses and large deficits. "Broncos had a historically bad defense," but after replacing expensive veterans with younger, hungrier players, the Broncos have created "one of the greatest in-season turnarounds" in NFL history.
With head coach Sean Payton simplifying the offense, "Russell Wilson is essentially being treated like a rookie quarterback," Bye said. However, even with the Broncos five-game win streak, Bye has "the Texans winning in Houston."
