Peyton Manning: Houston Texans' defense 'kicked our butt' at practice

The Houston Texans’ defense is doing its best impression of the Seattle Seahawks. The Texans were too much for Peyton Manning and the Broncos’ to handle at Tuesday’s joint practice.

Once again, the perfectionist was stumped.

” … I thought our offense stunk today. I thought the (Houston) defense totally kicked our butt,” he said, via The Denver Post. “I couldn’t see what was going on on the other side of the field, so we’ll learn from the film, there will be some good things to see. Hopefully we will come out and do a better job tomorrow for our players to uphold doing our jobs of executing …”

Manning emphasized that he could not comprehend what exactly the Texans were doing to stump him. Thus, he’s ready to study the tape. Considering that Manning has dissected two of last year’s best defense (Seattle and San Francisco) in one preseason, there’s no reason for concern. He’s 22 of 27 for 182 yards and a touchdown. The old man’s still got it.

He may have been frustrated with Tuesday’s performance, but he’s happy with the overall product.

“It’s good. We have played two physical games against two physical teams, and this will be a great week of work against a physical defense, as well. Saturday, the game will be good work. When you play the third game you play the most, and like I said, they give you looks at 3-4 on certain downs and then looks for four down and have all the different blitzes and coverages, as well. They have good personnel so it’s a good challenge.”
