The Denver Broncos walked into Metlife Stadium Sunday ready to steer the ship in the right direction against the New York Jets. They left looking like one of the worst teams in the league.
The Denver Broncos came out of the locker room like all they had to do was show up, put their foot down on the Jets, and escape New York with an easy win. The Jets ended up being the ones running all over the Broncos.
The offense continued to struggle moving the ball down the field. Case Keenum was brought in to shore up the passing game but he still looks like he’s uncomfortable in the offense.
Keenum wasn’t comfortable in the pocket on Sunday, and on too many plays, he was forcing throws into windows that weren’t there instead of taking what the defense gave him.
The offense wasn’t the only area of the team that struggled.
Von Miller has been MIA for the past two games and has taken the rest of the defense with him. Watching the Jets of all teams gash the defense on consistent plays really makes me second guess just how good this year’s team really is.
The first five games have been a tale of two different teams, and Sunday’s game showed the Broncos country and the league that the team from the Mile High City wasn’t just a quarterback away from returning to the team who won the Super Bowl two years ago.
But instead, we woke up Monday morning looking at a 2-3 record and still seeking the same answers from a year ago.
Before we move on to the week six against the Los Angeles Rams, let’s take a look at three things we learned about the Broncos from Sunday’s defeat.
