For “Throwback Thursday”, we go back to October of 2010. Yes, the Jets have beaten the Denver Broncos in the Rex Ryan era. Granted, Peyton Manning was not the quarterback, Kyle Orton was, but it still happened!

The Jets entered this one riding high with a 4-1 record. The Broncos were struggling with a 2-3 record, Kyle Orton as their starting quarterback, and a certain wildcat quarterback that I have vowed never to utter.

The Jets opened the scoring with a 32 yard touchdown pass from Mark Sanchez to Braylon Edwards. However, Demaryius Thomas broke a 10-10 tie in the third quarter, taking a 17 yard pass from Kyle Orton for the score. Two touchdown runs by Ladainian Tomlinson secured a 24-20 win for the Jets, and propelled the team to a 5-1 record.  Here is the full boxscore:
