Jets want ‘payback’ against Broncos in Week 5 for Nathaniel Hackett

After an NFL offseason filled with bitter comments back and forth between the New York Jets and Denver Broncos, the time has come for these two teams to go head-to-head during the regular season. Both teams enter Week 5 desperately needing a win to salvage their season.

Before heading into the 2023 NFL season, the Broncos and Jets were considered to be potential heavyweights in the AFC. Sean Payton sought to turn things around for Denver while Aaron Rodgers wanted to right the ship for New York.

Unfortunately, things haven’t gone well for either team up to this point in the season. The Jets lost Rodgers for the season and Denver is in contention for being the worst team in the league.

Apparently, the Jets are more motivated than ever to get some redemption for Nathaniel Hackett via ESPN.

The feeling among Hackett’s players is different. Center Connor McGovern believes Hackett was unfairly criticized by Payton, who told USA Today in late July that Hackett’s 15-game tenure last season was “one of the worst coaching jobs in the history of the NFL.” McGovern said they’d love for Hackett to get “payback” at Empower Field, where the two 1-3 teams meet.

As for the Broncos, Payton and company will try to make it two wins in a row after barely getting the best of the Chicago Bears last week, 31-28.

Denver’s season has been marred by the historic beatdown by the Miami Dolphins, in which they allowed 70 points. Obviously, Payton wants to put that loss behind him while proving he was right about Hackett this week.
