New York Jets

New York JetsHaving shocked many with their 22-16 overtime triumph against the Bills, especially in the wake of QB Aaron Rodgers’ season-ending injury, the Jets have since been grounded. Successive defeats to the Cowboys (30-10) and the Patriots (15-10) revealed vulnerabilities. In their close encounter with the Chiefs, the Jets demonstrated spirit, battling back from a 17-0 first-quarter deficit, only to fall 23-20. Zach Wilson’s 245-yard, two-touchdown performance was a silver lining, supported by Breece Hall’s 56 rushing yards. Receiver Allen Lazard shone with a touchdown from his 61-yard haul. However, concerning stats like ranking last in the NFL for the time of possession (25:23) and 3rd down percentage (26.5%) can’t be ignored. Historically, the Jets have struggled on Sundays, losing their last eight.


Denver Broncos  

Denver BroncosThe Broncos, after nail-biting losses to the Raiders (17-16) and Commanders (35-33), suffered a demoralizing 70-20 defeat to Miami. Yet, their character was on full display when they erased a 28-14 fourth-quarter deficit against the Bears, surging back with 17 unanswered points to win 31-28. Quarterback Russell Wilson showcased his skills with 223 passing yards and three touchdowns. Jaleel McLaughlin’s 72 yards on the ground and Jerry Jeudy’s 52 receiving yards further underscored the team’s depth. Alarmingly, Denver ranks at the bottom in the NFL for both points allowed (37.5 per game) and yards conceded (461.5 per game).



Although the Broncos had a rocky start against the Bears, their offense, which totaled 311 yards and zero turnovers, showed promise. Conversely, they allowed a staggering 471 yards. Yet, their two turnovers and the Bears’ 10 penalties made the difference. Given their recent performance, Denver seems poised to handle the Jets’ offense. 

The Jets do deserve recognition for their spirited comeback against the Chiefs. They mustered 336 total yards against Kansas City’s formidable defense. However, the current state of the Jets raises questions about their ability to cover or even compete consistently. With this in mind, bet on the Broncos to cover the small -2 spread in BUSR NFL Odds
