The Denver Broncos and the New York Jets meet in week 4 NFL action as this week’s installment of Thursday Night Football from MetLife Stadium.
The Denver Broncos will be looking for their first win of the season after a 28-10 loss to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers last time out. Jeff Driskel threw for 176 yards, a touchdown and an interception on 17 of 30 passing while Brett Rypien threw for 53 yards and a pick on 8 of 9 passing.

Head-to-head, Denver is 5-2 ATS in the last 7 meetings between these two teams and the over is 4-1 in the last 5 meetings between these two teams in New York.
I think there are help lines out there if you feel the need to bet this game. I mean this is an absolute dumpster fire of a game and it’s no wonder that the Thursday night games have the reputations that they do. With that said, I’m not expecting much offense here as the Jets have been putrid all season long and the Broncos are banged up to all hell coming into this one and I don’t trust them to do much of anything offensively either. I’d be surprised if this game got to 30 points, so I’ll take the under in this one.
