Monday Night Football: Houston Texans visit the Denver Broncos

Brock Osweiler is back!

Troy Taormina-USA TODAY Sports

As Week 7 comes to a close, ESPN presents the Houston Texans against the Denver Broncos. In this matchup, Brock Osweiler returns to Denver after signing a big contract with the Houston Texans. Osweiler is still feeling a bit miffed from his old team claiming that they miss him. Meanwhile, Broncos player Brandon Marshall says they "want to kill him." It could be simple jest or this could turn into a cold blooded rivalry, especially with both teams being at the top of their divisions. It should be an entertaining storyline to follow.

However, it won't be easy for Osweiler as Vegas has the Texans as a 9-point underdog in Monday night's contest. Especially with him giving extra motivation for the Super Bowl winning defense. But still, the Texans signed him for a reason and they have deadly weapons with DeAndre Hopkins and Will Fuller available.
