I don't know what the heck Denver is doing today. Not starting the key players in the last game was probably not smart, whereas Manning has to win a pressure game against Houston to get him ready for today.
This is not really fantasy related, but I watch the Broncos a lot from here because I get them on my satellite. Today it looks like they are running a lot of empty backfield plays and then running their RB back to a normal position. I don't think this does anything for them at all. The Broncos are a run-oriented team, and normally they have a single back with a FB or TE running a little to one side in order to set up blocking (Maybe a Denver fan can confirm this for me). I haven't seen that formation much if any today. Maybe Shanahan was trying to make his plays look different, but it isn't working at all!
