It's All in the Timing

Denver's 31-13 win over the Houston Texans couldn't have come at a better time for a team still reeling from back to back losses.

Two franchise records, four touchdown passes and a 31-13 drubbing of the Houston Texans, Ladies and Gentlemen the Denver Broncos are back in business.

Considering their dismal performance over the past two weeks, the timing couldn't have been better.

Neither could the timing on the Broncos first touchdown drive of the game, a drive which encompassed ninety-nine yards, set a new franchise record for Rod Smith and culminated in a Jake Plummer to Jeb Putzier 34-yard touchdown toss.

Like I said, it's all in the timing.

"It was crucial for us to get back on track," said Smith, whose first quarter catch moved him past Shannon Sharpe on the Broncos all-time reception list with 676. Smith set his second franchise record of the afternoon one quarter later, hooking up with Plummer on a 13-yard strike, again moving him past Sharpe as the teams' all-time leader in touchdown receptions with fifty-six.

Albeit impressive, it was a fact Smith downplayed o reporters, preferring to deflect the personal notoriety in favor of his teammates.

"I really don't want to talk about me. I didn't want to talk about me last week, and I don't this week. I want to talk about our team. Our team had its back against the wall, and we needed to come out and make some plays and make some things happen."

Against Houston, the Broncos did make things happen, silencing even the harshest of critics.

Two hundred thirty-four passing yards for Jake Plummer, four touchdowns to four different receivers and not a single interception in the bunch, like I said, it's all in the timing, and today's was perfect. In addition to Smith and Putzier, Ashley Lelie and Kyle Johnson also found gold, collecting on touchdowns of 40 and 23-yards respectively. For Johnson it was a career first.

"I was very excited, said the second year veteran. ‘Really, I was just trying to concentrate on getting the first down. I don't even know what happened. I heard the crowd roar, and turned around, and I was in. So, that was a very special moment for me."

Sharing Sunday's spotlight was a Denver defense; fresh off a two-week mental vacation they pressured Texan quarterback David Carr at every opportunity, generating a game-high four sacks in the process.

"To tell you the truth, Coach [Defensive Coordinator Larry Coyer] just let us go today," said defensive end Reggie Hayward. "It was a chance for the D-line to take control of the game, which is exactly what we did."

The win, which extends Denver's first place tie with San Diego in the AFC West, also makes its mark in perfect timing for the Broncos coaching staff, still backpedaling from consecutive losses to Cincinnati and Atlanta.

"Teams that do something, usually in the playoffs, play their best football in November or December," a visibly relieved Mike Shanahan noted in his post game press conference.

"It's November right now, so hopefully we can heal this week, get a little healthier and mentally get away from (football) a little bit, and come back against New Orleans and really get one going."

An impressive win, an equally impressive rebound and the luxury of an entire week to enjoy them both, sometimes it just doesn't get any better.

Like I said, it's all in the timing.
