Stifling defense helps Denver Broncos jolt New York Jets, end skid

Jamaal Charles did not practice Wednesday

Leading by 13, the Broncos extended their advantage with Siemian leading a 68-yard drive that Janovich finished with a third-down plunge from 1 yard out for a touchdown. In the 35-27 loss to the Panthers, McCown was 19-for-36 for 307 yards and three touchdowns without an interception.

The tone was set early and this time sustained, as quarterback Trevor Siemian guided the Broncos on a 12-play scoring drive on their first possession, and Denver's defense quickly gave them another shot to extend it.

Thomas went into to their Week 14 matchup against the New York Jets 58 yards behind Hall of Fame tight end Shannon Sharpe for No. 2 all-time in receiving yards in Broncos' history.

McCown was brought in as a stopgap with the thought that either Petty or Hackenberg could develop into the starter over time, but the veteran has clearly been the best option under center this season.

The Jets (5-8) were limited to just 100 yards of offense, 59 on the ground and 41 through the air.

Bitcoin has yet to crack the $17,000 barrier, let alone the price Coinbase charged users to buy the cryptocurrency. The supersonic growth comes after bitcoin hit $10,000 for the first time just last week.

Two plays later, Siemian hit Thomas for the 20-yard score, giving Denver its first double-digit lead since October 1 against Oakland, the date of their last victory. The Denver defense has been stingy, suffocating and opportunistic.

Later in the fourth quarter, a 40 yard field goal from McManus made it 23-0. Shelby Harris had a batted pass at the line and notched a sack in the first half. Miller now has at least 10 sacks in six of his seven National Football League seasons.

For the Broncos it's a return to the style of football they feel they can play every week and hopefully a sign of things to come to finish out the season.

Bryce Petty replaced McCown in both instances Sunday.

This wasn't an overwhelming performance by any individual Broncos player, but finally a team win like we've been longing to see.
