NY Jets vs Denver Broncos – Looking at the Line

The New York Jets travel to Denver this Sunday to play the 1-3 Broncos, and we are looking at the line. Not the offensive of defensive line, no the gambling line. The line on this game is just wrong. I’m not sure if there is a glitch in the matrix or if Las Vegas is feeling generous, but this one is easy.

Denver was less than 20 minutes and more than 20 points from falling to 0-4 last Sunday. That’s when the Bears remembered they are the Bears. Denver stormed back from a three-touchdown deficit to notch their first win of the season. It wasn’t all about the Bears. Russell Wilson was solid, completing 21 of his 28 passes. Wilson threw three TD passes and didn’t have an INT.  Wilson has been a bright spot in what has been a dreadful start for Denver. He has been much more efficient and careful with the football this year. Wilson has 9 TDs and just 2 INTs for the year. Wilson is in the top ten in passing yards through four games, and he ranks third in the league in passer rating.

Russell Wilson has had to be good. Denver is not having any success on the ground. Their leading rusher, Javonte Williams, is 37th in rushing yards with just 138 through four games. Denver’s struggles on the ground have not hindered their scoring. The Broncos average 25 points per game after four games.

So, why are the Broncos 1-3? Denver has the worst defense in the league, according to any metric that matters. The Broncos allow an eye-popping 37.5 points per game. Even if we discount the 70-point drubbing they suffered at the hands of the Miami Dolphins, Denver is allowing just under 28 points per game. Denver allows the most yards per game on the ground, and they are the second-worst in the league at stopping the pass. There are already rumblings about the Broncos defensive coordinator, Vance Joseph, losing his job. The struggling Jet offense should find its stride against Denver.

The Bottom Line

Denver should be favored against nobody. The Jets struggle on offense, but Denver is so porous that it isn’t going to matter. The linemakers don’t expect Zach Wilson to repeat his sold performance from last week against Kansas City, but it shouldn’t matter. Wilson will not be asked to do anything special. The Jets will be able to push the Bronco defense around and control the game on the ground. New York is a much more physical team, and their defense will lock down Denver’s receivers. Look for Breece Hall to easily surpass the 70.5 yards posted by the books. Use the Jets +2 as well to make it very profitable Sunday afternoon. The Jets are +110 on the money line, and I like that as well. The Jets will dominate and secure their second win of the year Sunday while the Broncos stay in the race for the first overall draft pick in 2024.
