The Broncos could be in for a big letdown. Not only did they let the Chiefs steal one from them at home but they are travelling across the country to play in a different time zone on a short week. I think the pros would call that a “bad” situation.
Things started off so promisingly for the Jets this season. They got that somewhat impressive win over the Lions on the first Monday night but since then they have not looked good. Their offense has been very unproductive.
I do not think this Denver team is very good, they are 2-2 and that feels about right. At the same time they should have won last week. They just weren’t able to deliver that knockuot blow and they let Patrick Mahomes makes too many great plays.
When they had the ball I don’t quite understand why the offense isn’t more dynamic. Case Keenum was great for Minnesota last year but maybe he is proving that he really is a journeyman. I look at the talent they have on offense and think they should be able to do more.
One good thing about this matchup is that they are not likely to have to score a lot of points to be competitive and their defense might have more success forcing errors than it did a week ago against the Chiefs. This group is probably not as good as a few years ago but Von Miller is still around and they have other playmakers too.
Hitting the road after a tough home loss can be the best and worst thing. It is too bad this is not a short jaunt to a place like Houston but if this group is ready to play it looks like the sharper side. I am not a big fan of Coach Vance Joseph though, beyond his obvious defensive strengths.
New York Jets
The Jets had to have known that there would be some rocky moments once they decided to go with a rookie at quarterback. Sam Darnold looks like he might have the right tools but it also looks like the game is going 1000 miles per hour for him right now.
The only thing you can really say about last week is that he avoided interceptions against a very good Jacksonville defense. He made one 42 yard connection with Quincy Enunwa but he is having difficulty making teams respect his arm and it is affecting the whole offense.
The Jets are not going to be able to catch a break as Denver is another tough defense that will be more than happy to turn up the pressure and force mistakes. The fact that Darnold didn’t take the bait is good but New York is not going to win many games if they can’t score 20 points.
Against Jacksonville they made Blake Bortles look pretty good. Denver is not as strong on offense so perhaps they can play this one in the mud and steal a victory.

Even though it seems like a bad spot for the visitors I don’t like the way the Jets and Darnold are looking and just can’t get behind them here.
NFL Free Week 5 Score Prediction: Denver 26 – New York 17
This game is not going to have a ton of points but I think Denver will be able to establish a working lead and hold it thanks to a conservative well executed plan. That is what Keenum excels at.
