The Denver Broncos have a lot to prove on Thursday Night Football when the New York jets come to town.
They need to make a bid for their division and prove to the critics that they can be a force in the AFC West.

In an interview with NFL.com's Jeff Darlington on Tuesday, John Fox went through tape after tape of game film from the Broncos' most recent win, and broke down some of the improvements that need to take place this week.
Here are four key matchups to watch in the Broncos' option offense on Thursday as they do their best to prove their critics wrong and score another win.
