The Denver Broncos visit the New York Jets on “Thursday Night Football” in the worst game on the entire Week 4 schedule.

It’d be difficult to find two teams that are off to a worse start in the 2020 NFL season than the Broncos and Jets. They are both among the six teams with an 0-3 record. New York is dead last in the NFL with a minus-57 point differential, while Denver has been outscored by 25 points.

The Jets have undoubtedly played worse, losing all three games by double-digits. Sam Darnold threw three interceptions, two of which were returned for touchdowns, in New York’s 36-7 loss against the Indianapolis Colts in Week 3.

New York is 0-3 both straight up and against the spread. Denver is 2-1 against the spread, losing a pair of competitive matchups with the Tennessee Titans and Pittsburgh Steelers, both of whom have a perfect record.

A 28-10 loss to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers at home in Week 3 might indicate that the wheels are coming off for the Broncos. Jeff Driskel made his first start of the year after quarterback Drew Lock suffered a shoulder injury. Denver continues to lose some of its top starters to injuries.

Even after Driskel was held to 176 yards and a 71.0 passer rating while being sacked five times in a one-sided loss, the Broncos are three-point favorites, according to odds compiled by OddsShark. The betting total is 40.

That’s how bad the Jets have been. It would be an upset if they won at home against a winless team that’s without its starting quarterback, No.1 wide receiver and top pass rusher.

The Jets haven’t done anything well in three games. New York is dead last in both total offense and points scored. The Jets are 28th in scoring defense.

The Broncos aren’t much better, ranking 29th in total offense and 30th in points. Denver is a respectable 12th in scoring defense. No team has scored 30 points against the Broncos yet.

You can be sure the Jets won’t reach the 30-point mark. Le’Veon Bell is still hurt. It’s unknown if receiver Jamison Crowder or starting left tackle Mekhi Becton will play. Receiver Breshad Perriman is out.

Maybe this is the game Darnold turns it around. He can certainly outplay Driskel.

But it’s hard to bet on the Jets when they aren’t getting more than a field goal, considering how embarrassing the first three weeks have been for New York.

Prediction: Denver over New York, 17-13
