Jets head coach Todd Bowles is not undermining the reeling Broncos ahead of the team's trip to Denver this weekend for a Sunday afternoon matchup.
"It's a good football team," Bowles said. "I can't tell you why they haven't won here or there, but we know it's a good football team and they're very talented. We know we're going to get their best, so we just have to be ready to play."
The Broncos have lost eight straight games, a streak that started with a 23-10 loss to the Giants in Week 6. The Jets, meanwhile, are looking for a second straight win after a 38-31 win over the Chiefs at home last Sunday.
Bowles called LB Von Miller one of the best players in the NFL and said the Broncos have many players who can give teams headaches, including Emmanuel Sanders and Demaryius Thomas.
"They're tough - you look at the tape, they're tough," Bowles said. "They're both talented. Whether it's the long game or the short game, both are very competitive. They play at all pro levels."
Bowles noted that it will be a challenging matchup for the defense after allowing 362 passing yards and 474 total yards against the Chiefs last week.
"I'm sure it's going to be tough, but we have our work cut out for us."
