More expert picks continue to roll in for Week 11 matchups in the NFL, and the Denver Broncos have not seen a lot of support heading into their Thursday night game against the New York Jets. Vinnie Iyer of AOL's Sporting News has released his picks for Week 11, and is predicting the Broncos will fall to the Jets in his "Game of the Midweek." Here is his specific pick and analysis for the game:
The Broncos have been rolling with their option-like rushing offense the past two weeks, with Tim Tebow in the middle of the efforts. But those victories were against the inconsistent defenses of the Raiders and Chiefs. The Broncos won't be able to beat the Jets with a one-dimensional offense and a rare long throw. Darrelle Revis will easily take away Eric Decker, leaving the rest of the Jets' defenders to stack up against the run and come hard after Tebow. On the other side, Von Miller will try to rattle Mark Sanchez, but there should be plenty of opportunities for the Jets' quarterback to get the ball deep to Santonio Holmes and Jeremy Kerley.
Jets 27, Broncos 14.
The bad news for Broncos fans is that Iyer has been fairly accurate so far this year, going 96-50 in his picks for the season-to-date.
