Denver Broncos vs. New York Jets: Inside the Series

Use your ← → (arrows) to browse

The New York Jets travel to Mile High Stadium this Thursday night to play the Denver Broncos in their 34th overall matchup all-time.

The Broncos lead the all-time regular season series at 16-15-1 and the post-season series at 1-0. The Jets have visited Mile High Stadium as recently as last season when they held on for a tough 24-20 victory. The longest winning streak in this series belongs to Denver who won 5 straight from 1967-1976, and the Jets will be trying to win consecutive games against the Broncos for the first time since the 1960’s.

From a Denver perspective, the most memorable game played in this series was the AFC Championship Game played in Denver after the 1998 season. This was the final home game for John Elway and the 23-10 victory earned the Broncos a berth into Super Bowl XXXIII. The Broncos would go on to win their 2nd consecutive championship and Elway would retire as the Super Bowl MVP. I wrote a full piece on this very game and it’s worth your time to check it out.
