The Denver Broncos are reeling from a three-game losing streak and now will be without their starting quarterback in Russell Wilson. With Brett Rypien getting the nod, he will face a surging New York Jets team led by a fierce defense that just held Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers to a mere 10 points in a road win at Lambeau.
That’s a tall ask, but Head Coach Nathaniel Hackett felt positive with how the team has responded to yet another heartbreaking loss in overtime saying, “Every game is critical. We want to be sure that we’re always putting ourselves in a position to win. We’ve been in tight games—two overtime games in a row. We just have to bring it together so that we can win those close games now.”
He’s not wrong, but the issue isn’t losing tight games is that his offense is unable to perform even the basics to put any type of points on the board. They have scored over 16 points just once this season through six games. That’s just atrocious. To put that into context, if they’d been able to score just 20 points per game the team would be 5-1 right now instead of 2-4.
So buckle up, its now Brett Rypien’s turn to cook with the mud and manure given to him by Hackett’s offense and play calling.
Here’s how to watch.

Broncos-Jets Betting Odds
According to DraftKings Sportsbook, the Broncos opened a slight home favorite in this game against the Jets. However, the line shifted from 2.5-points to 1.5-points and then when Russell Wilson was officially ruled out it jumped to a 1.5-point advantage for New York. I felt like this was a game Denver could win in spite of its offense and I still feel that way, so I won’t be changing my picks heading into today.
In our weekly Broncos fan survey, we asked if you felt like Nathaniel Hackett should be fired midseason instead of having General Manager George Paton wait until the season concluded to make that move. 59% of you want this guy out of town as soon as possible. No one in the NFL needs a win with a quality offensive performance more than Hackett this week.
For this season, we have completely revamped our entire podcasting efforts for 2022. We have added more long-form shows, but have also begun a daily morning news podcast we have dubbed Horse Tracks to keep fans updated on everything that’s going on in a shorter type of episode.
