Last week the Denver Broncos traded wide receiver Damaryius Thomas to the Houston Texans just before Denver’s game on Sunday with the Texans. Thomas came back to Denver to a warm welcome from both fans and the Broncos organization. Despite Denver’s warm welcome, Thomas had this to say about the Texans win and Denver’s loss, “That’s what they do over there”, “I ain’t part of that no more. We like to win over here.”
On Sunday afternoon in the Mile High Denver hosted the Houston Texans in week nine hoping to add a win before their bye week. Houston came into Denver on a five-game winning streak with plans to make it six.
The Broncos went into Sunday’s game with three wins and five losses and high expectations of ceasing Houston’s winning streak. Looking back at the game, it’s apparent that Denver isn’t losing due to a lack in effort, but yet a lack of execution not on the part of players but the coaching staff.
It’s easy to say that they caught a tough break in their five loses considering that Denver lost by an average of 19 points to their opponents 26.
This week Denver has a bye and with the most recent loss, coach Vance Joseph’s job is in limbo.
In other sports the Denver Nuggets continue to win with wins over the Chicago Bulls, and the Cleveland Cavaliers last week and a win over the Utah Jazz on Saturday.
The Nuggets are at home to host the Memphis Grizzlies, and are on the road to face the Brooklyn Nets this week before they return home to host the Milwaukee Bucks on Sunday.
The Colorado Avalanche are six and six, with three straight losses to the Vancouver Canucks, Calgary Flames and the Minnesota Wild. All three loses came on the road, but the Avs are back at home this week to host the Nashville Predators, the Winnipeg Jets and the Edmunton Oilers.
Currently the Colorado Avalanche is fourth in the Western Conference and there’s tons of hockey left. The Avs will play the Nashville Predators this Wednesday at the Pepsi Center at 8 p.m.
