The Broncos vs Jets look to get back to some winning ways against the struggling New York Jets (1-3). To do that, the Broncos likely need to get better offensive production from Case Keenum. Part of that will include a strong rushing attack, which Offensive Coordinator Bill Musgrave is looking to expand.
“Royce has done a super job breaking tackles after contact,” Musgrave said on Thursday. “Both he and Phillip [Lindsay] are running really well. We need to get more of them, more turns, take the training wheels off of those two young guys and let them go because they’re doing great. When I talk about that, I’m talking to myself: Take the training wheels off.”
The Broncos philosophy has been more about running to step up the pass than it has been to run, run, run. However, if they are producing chunk yardage in the run game, there should be no reason to not do more of it.
Defensively, Von Miller and the Broncos should be able to make Sam Darnold feel uncomfortable all game long. It should be an easy win for Denver, but nothing ever seems to come easy for this team nowadays.

Is Bill Murray on the sidelines for the New York Jets? It sure does feel like Groundhog Day for them. The Denver Broncos come into town off a tough loss with a tough defense. Where have we heard this story? For New York, the story is the same as Week 4. The only difference is that they’re at home.
Denver is coming in foaming at the mouth, because they feel they should’ve beaten Kansas City. On top of that, they feel the officials missed a call that had a role in costing them the game.
Sam Darnold looks like a rookie, as expected. Also, the offensive line can’t protect or open holes for the running game.
On the other side, Case Keenum isn’t living up to his contract either. He opened the season with three touchdown passes, but has none since, and his overthrew an open receiver on what could’ve been a game-winning touchdown pass.
It’s an unfortunate situation for the Jets, because the Broncos are going to play out of their minds in this game. Expect the pass rush to get to Darnold and get to him frequently. He will find himself on his back a lot in this game.
Also, the Broncos have a good offensive line that will give Keenum the time he needs to find his receivers, and they will burn this Jets pass rush. This game won’t be close, and may be over by the end of the third quarter, much like the game in Jacksonville.
