New York Jets (-3) Look To Continue Win-Streak Over Denver Broncos
October 13th, 2010-  By Bryan Cross

The Denver Broncos and the New York Jets match up in week six of the 2010 NFL season, with the Jets coming in a winner of four-in-a-row.  For the Broncos however, it was a lost to Baltimore by two touchdowns this past Sunday.  New York looks to continue the momentum built since week one of the season,while the Broncos look to rebound from the loss.

The Jets defeated the Vikings on Monday Night in sloppy, rain-filled game that was delayed nearly an hour due to lightning in the area.  While touchdowns were hard to come by for New York, place kicker Nick Folk was able to knock through five field goals on the night en route to a 29-20 victory.  It was a close contest until Dwight Lowery intercepted a Brett Favre pass and ran it back 26 yards to the end zone with about a minute remaining to ice the game.

For the Broncos, it was a 31-17 loss to the Ravens to drop to 2-3 on the year.  Denver is still well within the hunt of the AFC West, with Kansas City and San Diego also losing.  Quarterback Kyle Orton continued his sold play, throwing for 314 yard and two touchdowns against a very good Baltimore defensive unit.

Looking ahead at this one for the Jets on offense, quarterback Mark Sanchez continues to look impressive.  He appears comfortable in the pocket, and has been making the right reads on a defense.  Combine that now with the debut of Santonio Holmes after serving his suspension for violating the league’s  substance abuse policy, and the passing game appears to be on the rise even more.  Running back Shonn Greene had a solid game along with LaDainian Tomlinson.  Green was able to get into the end zone for the Jets only offensive touchdown on the night.

On defense for the Broncos, getting after Sanchez will be key if they are to stop the New York attack.  While Sanchez continues to look good, he can still make mistakes.  The best way for that to happen is under pressure and forcing him to make poor decisions.

Orton has been playing well of late for the Broncos, tabbing another 300-game.  He did not throw an interception against the Ravens, but will get another stern defensive test this week against the jets.  New York might have the best secondary in the league with Antonio Cromartie coming on strong next to Darelle Revis.  Running back Knowshon Moreno’s status remains up in the air with a hamstring injury.

For the Jets defense, they came up with critical turnovers against the Vikings that ultimately proved to be a difference maker.  While the secondary is very good, they showed that they were vulnerable in giving up touchdown passes to Brett Favre.  Revis’ hamstring continues to be an issue, but the front seven of the defense continues to be solid.
