Pro Football Network: Broncos 28, Jets 13

Ben Rolfe writes: "Through two weeks, the Denver Broncos have done no wrong. They have beaten two bottom-dwelling teams and gotten off to a nice 2-0 start. This matchup should allow Denver to remain undefeated and give them a great chance of earning a postseason berth. Zach Wilson couldn’t handle the defense nor the situation in New England, and the rookie quarterback could have even more trouble on the road in Denver. This could be another ugly game for the former BYU quarterback."

Vincent Frank writes: "The Denver Broncos defense just made Trevor Lawrence look like he still belonged in college. Set to face Zach Wilson and a decimated Jets' offensive line in Week 3, we're expecting similar results. Denver's offense should score early, allowing the defense to tee off on a rookie quarterback."

Play Picks: Take the Jets with the points against the Broncos

Brian Sausa writes: "After playing two games on the road to begin the season, the Broncos’ home opener will be in Week 3 against the New York Jets and a rookie quarterback. As a result, the home team is favored by almost double digits at Mile High. The schedule gets considerably tougher for Denver after this game, so it’s one that the Broncos will be desperate to win at home to keep the good vibes flowing early in the season. These two played a sloppy, albeit exciting TNF game early in 2020 with Brett Rypien and Sam Darnold starting under center. This time around, it will be Teddy Bridgewater for Denver and first-round pick Zach Wilson for the Jets. So when assessing this game, you pretty much need to throw any stats from last year out the window and just try to interpret what’s right in front of you."

Will Zach Wilson and the New York Jets upset the Denver Broncos in Week 3 of the NFL season?

Sportsnaut: Broncos 26, Jets 24

Matt Fitzgerald writes: "Playing in the altitude actually works to New York’s probable strength, which is Wilson stretching the field in the play-action passing game with Corey Davis and Elijah Moore. The Jets are playing better than expected on defense, and if Wilson can learn quickly from his Week 2 dud — let’s face it, he can’t get much worse — don’t be shocked if they emerge keep things close in Denver. This is a classic trap game for the Broncos."

CBS Sports: Jets 27, Broncos 20

Jordan Dajani writes: "Here, I think Saleh finds a way to concoct a game plan that puts the game on Teddy Bridgewater's shoulders. That could be a good thing for New York. I have the Jets scoring an upset victory."

Tyler Greenawalt writes: "The Broncos look a little better with Courtland Sutton’s return, the additions of Teddy Bridgewater and Javonte Williams on offense and Kyle Fuller and Patrick Surtain Jr. on defense, but the Jets find a way to get Wilson his first victory as an NFL quarterback."
