ENGLEWOOD -- If the Denver Broncos needed reasons to not overlook the New York Jets, they found two last Sunday. Green Bay and Minnesota, both huge underdogs, won at Atlanta and at the New York Giants, respectively. The Broncos have made a mental note of both outcomes as they prepare to face the Jets, who are 13-point underdogs for Sunday’s game at Invesco Field at Mile High. “They’ve been hampered by injuries on offense, which is one of the reasons they haven’t been as successful as a team as they’ve been in the past, but I know we’re not going to fall in that trap because I think a couple teams did that last weekend,” Broncos coach Mike Shanahan said. The Broncos are 7-2 and the Jets are 2-7. But with some tough road games remaining on the schedule, the Broncos can’t afford to take this game for granted. “The Jets have always finished hard and well so we have to come out there and be ready to play,” safety John Lynch said. “If you’ve played in this league long enough you realize that injuries, whatever, anybody can beat anybody else on any given Sunday.” CONTACT THE WRITER: 476-4891 or email@example.com.
