The Denver Broncos face the New York Jets on Thursday night as they hope to keep pace with the rest of the AFC West and continue a resurgent season.
The Denver Broncos are hosting the New York Jets on Thursday night as they hope to keep pace in the shockingly competitive AFC West. It's pretty unbelievable to think that the Broncos are still contending now with Tim Tebow at the helm, but the struggles of the division's other teams and the develop of the team's option-based offense have given them a window.
A win on Thursday over the Jets would give Denver its fourth win in five games and bump its record to 5-5 on the year. In a division where the Oakland Raiders currently lead at 5-4 on the year, there's a very real possibility that the Broncos contend all year long.
