Broncos vs. Jets: Defense looks terrible in first half
The Denver Broncos trail the New York Jets after the first 30 minutes of the game. Denver would be performing better if not for two big plays by the Jets.
The Denver Broncos looked promising in the first couple minutes of the game. However, there were two big plays allowed by the Broncos defense that has given the Jets a lead going into the half.
This should easily be a 10-0 lead for the Denver Broncos. But the Broncos defense allowed two big plays on defense. A 77 yard run by Isaiah Crowell and a Sam Darnold 76 yard pass to Robby Anderson has given the Jets the lead going into the half.
Denver is not down by much, but it looks like this should be worse than it looks. It seems like the Broncos defense cannot get anything going. This has been a tough game for them.
It also appears as if the pass protection has been really bad in this game. Garett Bolles has been bad for the team, called for a holding call once again.
The only positive that we have seen thus far is from rookie second round draft pick Courtland Sutton. He recorded his first NFL touchdown when he caught a pass from Case Keenum that did put Denver up early.
Since that touchdown, the Broncos have not been able to do much. It is really difficult to point out exactly what has been the issue in this game. The secondary has been such a sore spot for the Denver Broncos this season. Two touchdowns thrown by Sam Darnold is not a good look.
It is going to take a full team effort to secure the win against the New York Jets on the road. The Jets will get the football to start the second half. Can Denver get it together? We will find out.
