The only thing that can possibly screw us is the Texas game is over early with the Texans pulling away. Then the Broncos can scrap their game plan and go with plan b. Because the gamer no longer matters and why risk injury.
Of course it matters, they can still lose the bye to the Patriots if they lose and the Pats win.
