Jets throttled by Broncos as they fall out of playoff hunt

Jets throttled by Broncos as they fall out of playoff hunt

After the Broncos' head coach raised eyebrows this week by holding consecutive practices at the team's $35 million indoor facility despite playable-to-gorgeous outdoor conditions, Denver played its best game in almost 2 ½ months by dominating the New York Jets, 23-0, Sunday at eventually-to-be-renamed Sports Authority Field at Mile High.

They were no match for the Broncos on Sunday. "So we might just dump the Gatorade on V.J. We ain't won in two months".

Denver successfully flipped the script of its eight-game losing streak, forcing the early turnover that defined the script of the game. "We all are sick and exhausted of losing".

As matchups with the New Orleans Saints, Los Angeles Chargers, and the New England Patriots loom on the horizon, and the Jets 2.5 games out of the sixth and final Wild-Card spot, Gang Green suddenly finds itself looking like the "same ol' Jets".

Defensive end Adam Gotsis recovered the loose football at the NY 20-yard line, and the Broncos capitalized on a 20-yard Trevor Siemian-to-Demayrius Thomas touchdown pass two plays later.

"Losing obviously is one thing, but I think the way that we've lost has been the most frustrating thing", general manager John Elway said on Denver radio station KDSP-AM 760. "Period. We just haven't been able to find that formula".

Many prognosticators predicted doom and gloom for the Jets this season.

The Jets signed him in the offseason, becoming the eighth team McCown has played for in his National Football League career.

After the defense forced the Jets to punt on the opening drive, Brandon McManus nailed a 31 yard field goal on the Broncos' first possession. He joined Brett Favre and Ryan Fitzpatrick as the only quarterbacks to win the award with three teams in the past 15 years.

McCown returned three plays later and on his first play threw an interception to Broncos safety Dorian Stewart.

That is why every time we witness a fullback dive get six points, it should be celebrated. "That's all that matters".

The all-round dominance left Joseph wondering where that team had been.

Josh McCown enjoyed his best performance of the season last week during what has become a career year for the journeyman quarterback.

Without McCown, coach Todd Bowles said Bryce Petty would be the starter, so Christian Hackenberg still would be watching from the sideline.

With Emmanuel Sanders almost a complete no-show, Denver relied on a masterful game by leading receiver Demaryius Thomas to beat the Jets.
