http://www.denverbroncos.com/page.php?id=341&contentID=4234The Denver Broncos, who own a two-game lead atop the AFC West, aim for their eighth consecutive home victory when they face the New York Jets on Sunday. Kickoff at INVESCO Field at Mile High is scheduled for 2:15 p.m. MST.
The Broncos improved to 7-2 on the season with a 31-17 win at Oakland last week and have been playing outstanding football, trailing their opponents for a total of only 24:23 in their last seven-plus games. Denver’s impressive start is the club’s best record after nine games since 1998 when the team started 9-0 en route to winning Super Bowl XXXIII.
Denver, which along with Pittsburgh is one of only two teams in the NFL ranked in the top five in both rushing offense and defense, has a 14-14-1 all-time regular-season record against the Jets. The two teams last met in 2002 in New York with the Jets taking a 19-13 victory in that contest. Sunday’s game marks the fifth time in the Broncos’ history that the club will face both New York metro area teams in the same regular season, taking into account Denver’s game at the Giants earlier this season.
The Broncos own the NFL’s best record in the month of November (.725 / 29-11) since 1995. They will look to continue that success Sunday against the Jets, who lost 30-3 at Carolina last week and are in the midst of a four-game losing streak.
