The Denver Broncos will host the New York Jets this weekend from Mile High Stadium this Sunday on CBS.

New York Jets Preview

New York fell to 1-3 after losing to Kansas City by three at home, 23-20. The Jets fought admirably with the Chiefs in primetime last Sunday, and they’ll look to avoid a fourth straight loss here in the Rockies. The New York offense is scoring 15.5 ppg, while passing for 178.0 ypg, rushing for 95.5  ypg, and converting 26.5% of their third downs.

NYJ Player Props

Zach Wilson put together arguably the best outing of his career against the Chiefs last week, going 28/39 for 245 yards and two touchdowns. The spotlight has been thrusted back onto the former number two overall pick, and he showed up under the primetime lights last weekend, providing some form of optimism going forward. This will be another tough test for Wilson, and he’ll look to build on last Sunday’s effort. Wilson has passed for 712 yards, with four touchdowns to four interceptions.

Breece Hall led the backfield with 56 yards versus KC, and according to head coach Rob Saleh, he’ll no longer be on a “pitch count” going forward, after thriving with his touches. Hall leads the Jets in rushing with 210 yards on 32 carries.

Garrett Wilson caught nine passes in the loss to the Chiefs, and he leads the team in receptions (21) and receiving yards (225). 

• The Jets defense has allowed 21.0 ppg. 


Denver Broncos Preview

Denver moved to 1-3 after defeating Chicago on the road by three, 31-28. The Broncos fought hard in the second half to get into the win column for the first time, and they’ll look to double down here at home. The Denver offense is scoring 25.0 ppg, while passing for 253.5 ypg, rushing for 95.5 ypg, and converting 39.1% of their third downs.

Denver Player Props

Russell Wilson showed some life with last week’s comeback victory over Chicago, going 21/28 for 233 yards and three touchdowns. It was nice to see the former Seahawks QB and Sean Payton get over the hump after six straight tumultuous quarters, and they’ll now look to avoid a setback with a home loss to the Jets. Wilson has thrown for 1,014 yards, with nine touchdowns to two interceptions.

Javonte Williams is listed as questionable after leaving last week’s game early, and there’s a chance he’s on a pitch count for this one. 

Courtland Sutton has scored in three of the first four games, and he leads Denver in receptions (20) for 216 receiving yards.

Jerry Jeudy has reached the 50-yard mark in back-to-back games, and he’s caught eleven passes for 158 yards thru three games. 

• The Broncos defense is allowing 37.5 points per game.   


New York vs Denver Trends

NYJ is 1-3 against the spread, with a 2-2 O/U record. 

DEN is 1-3 ATS, with a 3-1 over/under record.

Corey’s Free Pick

This contest is a must-win for Denver, as they’re schedule revs up with a trip to Arrowhead this Thursday, and only gets tougher from here on out. The Denver defense has been a shell of itself, but this will give them an opportunity to clean things up and address what went wrong on their road trip. This game should remain close, and with the pressure on to win, let’s back the Broncos here at Mile High.
