Things To Look For

Who would have thought back in the summer that the Jets would equal their win total of a season ago with four weeks to play while the Broncos would be in the midst of an eight-game losing streak? There’s not much going right in the Mile High City these days while Todd Bowles’ team has been pretty content with the performance of veteran quarterback Josh McCown. New York plays three of its final four games on the road and regardless of Denver’s record, this will be a tough assignment.
