The Denver Broncos and New York Jets clash Sunday in week 7 NFL action from Empower Field at Mile High.

The New York Jets will be looking to build on their current three-game win streak, improving to 4-2 on the year after a 27-10 win over Green Bay last time out. Zach Wilson’s thrown for 572 yards, a touchdown and 2 interceptions on 56% passing while Breece Hall leads the Jets with 391 rushing yards and 3 rushing TDs while Michael Carter has 199 rushing yards and a pair of rushing scores this season. Corey Davis leads the Jets with 351 receiving yards along with a pair of touchdowns while Garrett Wilson has a team-high 24 grabs for 290 receiving yards and a pair of scores as well. Three more Jets receivers have 200+ receiving yards as well this season. On defense, C.J. Mosley has a team-high 62 total tackles including a team-high 37 solo tackles. Quinnen Williams has a team-high 5 sacks while Lamarcus Joyner has a pair of INTs as well this season.

The Denver Broncos will try to bounce back and snap a three-game losing streak, falling to 2-4 after a 19-16 OT loss to the Chargers last time out. Russell Wilson’s thrown for 1,442 yards, 5 touchdowns and 3 interceptions on 58.6% passing while Melvin Gordon III has 201 rushing yards and a touchdown. Courtland Sutton leads Denver’s receiving group with 31 grabs for 431 receiving yards while Jerry Jeudy has 290 receiving yards this season. On defense, Alex Singleton has a team-high 47 total tackles total tackles while Bradley Chubb has 5.5 sacks so far this season.

New York is 5-1 ATS in their last 6 road games and 6-14 ATS in their last 20 games against a team with a losing record while the under is 4-1 in their last 5 games following an ATS win. Denver is 3-7 ATS in their last 10 games overall and 3-11 ATS in their last 14 games against the AFC while the under is 8-1 in their last 9 games following an ATS win.

I get the case to be made for the Broncos at home, but they’re on a short week, with an offense that has a hard time producing consistently as well. The Jets have had their ups and downs, but don’t look now, as the Jets look pretty good with Zach Wilson under center and while Denver’s got a solid defense, I’m not sure the offense can do enough and put up enough points to get the Broncos a cover in this one. I’ll side with the Jets and the points here.
