New York Jets
The Jets put up a good fight in their game against the Chiefs, but it wasn't enough to secure a win on Sunday night. Now, they are determined to bounce back from the loss and aim for their first road win of the season.
Offensively, the Jets have been averaging 15.5 points per game, with 157.3 passing yards and 95.5 rushing yards per game. In their recent loss to the Chiefs, rookie quarterback Zach Wilson completed 72 percent of his passes for 245 yards and two touchdowns. Running back Breece Hall contributed with six carries for 56 yards, while Allen Lazard made an impact with three catches for 61 yards and one touchdown.
Defensively, the Jets have held their own, allowing an average of 21 points per game. However, they will need another solid defensive effort if they want to secure a victory in this game.
In terms of injuries, the Jets have some key players listed on the injury report. Wes Schweitzer (Concussion), D.J. Reed Jr. (Concussion), Samuel Eguavoen (Ankle), and Tony Adams (Hamstring) are questionable for this game, while Brandin Echols (Hamstring) has been ruled out.
The Broncos managed to snap their three-game losing streak with a remarkable comeback win over the Bears in their last game. Now, they are eager to maintain that momentum and secure their second consecutive win against the Jets.
Offensively, the Broncos have been averaging 25 points per game, with 237.8 passing yards and 95.5 rushing yards per game. Russell Wilson had a strong showing in the win over the Bears, completing 75 percent of his passes for 223 yards and three touchdowns. Jaleel McLaughlin added to the ground game with seven carries for 72 yards, while Jerry Jeudy made his presence known with three catches for 52 yards.
Defensively, the Broncos have faced some challenges, allowing an average of 37.5 points per game. Even in their recent win against the Bears, they surrendered 28 points, highlighting the need for an improved defensive effort in their upcoming matchup against the Jets.
On the injury front, the Broncos also have key players listed as questionable for the game, including Mike Purcell (Ribs), Justin Simmons (Hip), Josey Jewell (Groin), and Javonte Williams (Hip).
As the Jets aim to secure their first road win and the Broncos seek to continue their winning streak, this matchup promises excitement. However, considering the Jets' recent performance and the potential impact of injuries, our prediction is that the New York Jets will not only cover the +2.5 points spread but also secure a hard-fought victory in this game.
Pick: Jets +2.5
