How to Watch Jets vs. Broncos Week 5 Game: TV, Betting Info

Two teams hoping to salvage a season meet in the Mile High City on Sunday. While the teams had different results in Week 4, it’s hard to say who had a more impressive showing.

The Denver Broncos (1-3) are coming off of a dramatic comeback win against the then-winless Chicago Bears. While the Bears managed to get their first win Thursday in Week 5 action, it’s done little to ease concerns that Denver took advantage of an underwhelming team.

The team still gave up at least 28 points for a third straight week. It took a near-perfect game from quarterback Russell Wilson and a timely interception to overcome the early hole the Broncos dug.

The New York Jets (1-3) on the other hand, looked as good as they have all season in a loss to Kansas City.

Zach Wilson had the best game of his career, posting new high marks for completions and his first multi-touchdown game that didn’t include an interception. The defense looked strong, limiting the Chiefs to less than 200 yards through the air and picking off the reigning NFL MVP twice.

But still, the only stat that ultimately matters went into the loss column.

One of these teams is likely to come out of Sunday’s game with a glimmer of hope for the remainder of the season, and maybe the confidence that they can do something with it.

The other can likely start projecting their draft position and potential picks.
