DENVER (AP) — Russell Wilson won his Denver debut but he was booed during the Broncos’ sloppy 16-9 win over the Houston Texans a week after he was jeered in his return to Seattle. Wilson started out just 6-for-20 before leading Denver to a touchdown and a field goal to erase a 9-6 deficit.

The Broncos won despite committing 13 penalties for 100 yards a week after they led the league with a dozen infractions.

And Broncos rookie head coach Nathaniel Hackett again had a number of problematic play calls. This time, he was able to get his first NFL win, however.
