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. If you haven’t yet, get to a betting site with a decent bonus, you should check out no ID betting sites on CasinoGap.

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.

Truth. That said I did put my entire FanDuel balance on the Jets money line this week. I think they got this one wrong. I don't see the Jets losing and was very surprised they were underdogs.

Anyhow it wasn't that much $ so we will see.  :)

This is a great opportunity for the team to make a statement to the rest of the league.  Offense showed a lot to be hopeful about last week, and going against a defense this godawful is a lucky break, IMO.  Build on last week's performance and suddenly you're going on two weeks in a row of solid offensive football.  Whether it's against Denver or not, that should build some confidence and hopefully start building some momentum.

 

I'm hoping the defense is tired of being looked at as an overrated group and decide to come out of the gate swinging.  I want to see Russ running for his life.  

 

If we ever had a chance to blow someone out this year, this is it.  Maybe the next best shot is the Giants, but I feel like that's a rivalry game and chances are it'll be close.  Go make Payton eat his words.  No mercy.

Did anyone think mahommes holding up and not going in for a td was strange?  The line was 9.5. If mahommes go in they win by 10.  Mahomes opted to step out of bounds at the one or two yard line.  And he took a bow.  At that point it was first and goal with a minute plus left and the jets out of timeouts.  Sure he iced the game at that point but does anyone think the jets could have responded to being 10 down with a minute left?  I sure don’t.

Would have been hilarious if he fumbled on the kneel-down snap and Sauce did a Herm Edwards running it back for a TD.

Denvers offense is middle of the pack and they are 10th in passing offense.  Russel Wilson has been better this year.  Saying that in theory we should clean up vs Wilson as he holds the ball and tries to make plays.  However we are a disgustingly bad tied for 26th-29th in sacks.

The fact that we're underdogs this week really concerns me.  I was all hyped up that ZW was going to turn things around but then we're underdogs to a team who gave up 70 points 2 weeks ago?!
