The Denver Broncos (3-9) have fully imploded. As a fan, it is depressing to watch them go out each week and keep finding new and annoying ways to lose games. Fortunately, this too shall pass. The Broncos have talent and can reset and try again in 2018.
The New York Jets (5-7) on the other hand have fought and clawed their way to an impressive record. They’ll present a tough challenge for the struggling Broncos.
Kickoff is set for Sunday, December 10, 2017 at 2:05 p.m. Mile High time at Sports Authority Field at Mile High in Denver, Colorado.

The line opened even for the Broncos against the Jets this week, however, once Vance Joseph named Trevor Siemian the starter after his horrendous performance against the Miami Dolphins the line immediately went in favor of the Jets and remained that way for the rest of the week.
Chris Harris Jr. will be the Broncos nominee for the Walter Payton Man of the Year Award for the work he has done helping kids in his communities. As bad as the season has been, the important work these athlete’s do is still being done out there.
“I put a lot of time and effort in the community, back home in Tulsa and here,” Harris said. “I just want to make sure that I can give these kids the best head start in life that they can possibly have. I think it’s a great achievement.”
By sticking with Siemian, it is clear the Broncos are tanking for the high draft pick. I think the Broncos will reach double digits in points, but it will be thanks to either a defensive score or a very short field for the anemic Siemian-led offense. Meanwhile, the Jets will feast on mistakes and short fields to score points they wouldn’t otherwise get against this Broncos defense.
Prediction: Jets 27, Broncos 13.
