Broncos Gameday Live Report — Broncos (11-3) at Texans (2-12) — Reliant Stadium, Houston

LIVE BLOG: #Broncos at #Texans

Paul Klee joining you from Reliant Stadium for the first early kickoff of this Broncos season.

—The Texans committed their first penalty with 9:40 left in the third quarter.

—Riddle me this: How does a team outgain another team, 357 to 157, and only lead by three points?

—The Broncos haven’t forced a turnover since the Tennessee game.

—But really, the biggest story today is Von Miller’s injury. We’ll know more after the game.

—Ryan Clady is up here in the press box. The lone exception when cheering is allowed. Who’s going to argue with an offensive tackle?

—Today couldn’t be off to a worse start for the Broncos. Von Miller’s out with a knee. Eric Decker was helped off the field with a lower-body something or other. Steve Vallos has a concussion.

—The injuries have gotten to the point it’s worth wondering: when the Broncos signed Peyton Manning as a free agent, was the deal with the devil? 

—The crowd here is probably 30-percent Broncos fans. The other 70-percent is asking this question: Teddy Bridgewater or Jadeveon Clowney?

—What to get the Broncos for Christmas? We broke it down in Sunday’s column.

—It sure seems to be setting up for a Ravens return to Mile High in the divisional round of the playoffs.

Peyton Manning was still catching up on his film study. So he avoided the question when asked this week if he was surprised by Houston's stunning downfall.

While Manning may not be well-acquainted with the dreadful 2013 Texans, he is quite familiar with many terrible Houston teams he terrorized year after year while playing for the Indianapolis Colts.

Denver's quarterback is 16-3 with 44 touchdowns against the Texans, who enter Sunday's game looking to snap a franchise-record 12-game skid. Now 37, Manning is having one of the best seasons by a quarterback in NFL history.

His 4,811 yards passing this year are the most in NFL history through 14 games, and his 47 touchdowns passes are fourth in league history and three away from Tom Brady's single-season NFL record set in 2007.

He shied away from whether this is the best he's ever played.
