As the Denver Broncos enter Week 16 tied with the Kansas City Chiefs for the best record in the AFC West (11-3), Peyton Manning will once again have to dissect a defense without his top slot receiver in Wes Welker.

Welker has been suffering from a concussion that occurred against the Tennessee Titans back in Week 14. The injury forced Welker to miss Denver’s division showdown against the San Diego Chargers last week. The Broncos lost the game with the score of 27-20.

As Denver prepares for this upcoming week against the Houston Texans, Jay Glazer of FOX Sports has reported that Welker will also miss this week’s game. It will be the second game in a row that Wes Welker has missed due to his ailing concussion.

Similar to the game against San Diego, the Broncos will most likely use wide receiver Eric Decker in the slot. Demaryius Thomas and Andre Caldwell will secure the X and Z positions. Andre Caldwell was the leading receiver against the Chargers and although mediocre, Manning made Caldwell look as if he was a number one receiver (6 receptions, 59 yards and 2 TDs).

It’s not a secret that Denver has one, if not the best offense in the league, however the Broncos will have to tread lightly as they will be on the road against a top five defense in the Texans. Houston is ranked fourth overall and is the second best defense against the pass.

With that said, the Broncos have more than enough firepower to get a victory as the Texans keep finding ways to lose games.

The Broncos are currently still playing for the #1 seed and homefield advantage in the playoffs. Denver will finish the 2013-14 season on the road against the Oakland Raiders.

    Won’t stop the Broncos on their way to a record breaking season . Peyton and his teammates are likely prolong the agony of Texans’ fans even more so .

  2. SportsChump says:

    This is a tough blow for Peyton and the Broncos but it’s probably better to rest him to make sure he’s 100% for the post-season, no?

    • CDR says:

      For sure, we agree. Welker needs to be healthy in the playoffs and facing the Texans and the Raiders (inconsistent teams) in the last two weeks should help Denver mightily.
