Denver's dazzling defense is a real dawdler

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) The Denver Broncos' dazzling defense has a fatal flaw: It keeps showing up late.

The Broncos (4-2), who host the Houston Texans (4-2) on Monday night in Brock Osweiler's much-anticipated homecoming , have surrendered first-drive scores in all but one game so far. Even in that one, they allowed a long touchdown drive on the second series.

"Last year we gave up 18.5 points per game, and this year we are giving up 18 points per game," defensive coordinator Wade Phillips noted. "It's not good when you get behind early like that, so it's something we're obviously trying not to do."
