"He will be a challenge for us, as he is for everybody. I like our matchup and I like some of the adjustments we’re making to handle that. But that will definitely be where my eyes are on third down."
— John Benton, Jets O-line coach, on outside linebacker Von Miller, who already has three sacks in two games.
The Jets will have to deal with playing in the thinner air in Denver and overcoming one of the NFL’s loudest fan bases. The offense worked on silent communication all week as it will be hard to hear in the Broncos’ first home game with a capacity crowd since 2019.
Noah Fant, Broncos TE: With WR Jerry Jeudy out, Broncos QB Teddy Bridgewater has made Fant his new security blanket, targeting him 14 times and making him the sixth most effective TE so far this season (10 catches, 95 yards, 1 TD). Last week, the Jets allowed five catches and 70 yards to the Patriots’ TE duo of Hunter Henry and Jonnu Smith. — NICK KLOPSIS
