Texans Vs. Broncos: Houston Defense Could Benefit From Peyton Manning's 'Weak Arm'

Following his three interception performance on Monday night, Denver Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning is having his arm strength called into question as the opportunistic Houston Texans defense awaits on Sunday.

Manning and his fellow Broncos have been fielding questions not only about the quarterback's ability to go downfield with the ball, but also the not-so-pretty look of his passes, according to an article by Mike Klis of The Denver Post. Klis notes that the three picks against the Atlanta Falcons weren't exactly the cause for concern so much as the fact that "they wobbled."

While still rehabbing from multiple neck surgeries, the 36-year-old Manning has the support of his teammates, including wide receiver Brandon Stokley.

From the report:

No one talked about arm strength after the Pittsburgh game. I'm telling you, in here, it's not even a topic of discussion. It's the last thing on our minds.

The Texans are tied for eighth in the league so far with three total interceptions. Additionally, they've racked up six total sacks through two games while allowing only a league-best 8.5 points per game.
