Game notes

» The Denver Broncos will host their first full-capacity regular season game since Dec. 29, 2019, in their home opener Sunday against the New York Jets

» All-time against the Jets, the Broncos own a 20-16-1 (.541) record, including victories in six of their last eight matchups

» With a win against New York, Denver would start a season 3-0 for the first time since 2016 and would improve their record in home openers since 2000 to 19-3

» Broncos head coach Vic Fangio owns a 19-9 record against rookie quarterbacks as a defensive coordinator or head coach following a win over the Jacksonville Jaguars in Week 2

» With a completion percentage of 75 percent or higher, quarterback Teddy Bridgewater would join Peyton Manning as the only Denver quarterbacks to hit that mark in three consecutive games

» Pass rusher Von Miller needs one sack to pass Greg Townsend Jr. (109.5) for sole possession of 23rd on the NFL’s all-time list

» With a touchdown reception, wide receiver Tim Patrick would become the first Broncos player since Demaryius Thomas (Weeks 8-10 in 2017) to grab a touchdown in three consecutive games
