Broncos Shutout the Jets at Mile High!
The Jets traveled to Denver Sunday for the first time since the 1998 AFC Championship Game (Jan. 17, 1999), a game the Broncos captured 23-10 en route to their Super Bowl championship that season. Head coach Herman Edwards has posted a 37-37 record as head coach of the Jets since taking over in 2001. Third-year QB Brooks Bollinger, who completed four of five passes for 26 yards, made his third career start for the Green & White. He left the game in the second quarter with a head injury and did not return.
When the Jets returned to the field, veteran QB Vinny Testaverde (15-25-152-2INT) took over offensive command in place of the injured Bollinger. Besides losing this game by 27 points, the stat that stood out in my mind was Curtis Martin running for 7 yards on 4 attempts. Even if we had Peyton Manning on the Jets, 7 yards rushing will not win games. The Jets played without the intensity they have shown in the past and I am looking forward to a top five draft pick come next season. Despite all the disappointing games this season I am still keeping up-to-date with my favorite sports team and if you want to, check this out!
