Coach Eddie Erdelatz continued to work his players hard in anticipation of Sunday’s game against the Texans. He had the team focus specifically on pass protection, believing that, while the receivers were doing their job to get open, the offensive line wasn’t giving Tom Flores and Babe Parilli enough time to find them. And the numbers bore that out. The Broncos sacked Raider quarterbacks five times last week and the team had given up 16 sacks on the season so far, in just four games. Erdelatz also thought that Dallas was particularly vulnerable against the pass and wanted to make sure his charges were prepared to exploit that weakness.
