1. Pass rush cranks up. After a non-descript start to the season, the Broncos’ pass rush got going against the New York Jets. The Broncos had 11 total disruptions (three sacks, five knockdowns and three pressures) in Weeks 1-2, but a whopping 16 against the Jets (five sacks, four knockdowns and seven pressures) of Jets QB Zach Wilson. The sacks came in 2.75 (ILB Alexander Johnson), 4.82 (DE Shelby Harris), 3.26 (OLB Von Miller), 3.95 (OLB Malik Reed) and 3.03 seconds (Johnson). The Broncos rushed at least five players at Wilson on 10 of his 40 drop-backs (25%) and he was 4 of 10 for 37 yards against extra rushers.
2. Stretching the field. Broncos QB Teddy Bridgewater was 4-of-8 passing on attempts that traveled at least 16 “air” yards, but those completions accounted for 110 of his 235 yards. The plays were 28 yards to WR KJ Hamler and 27, 24 and 31 yards to WR Tim Patrick. A downfield attempt negated by penalty was WR Courtland Sutton drawing a 19-yard pass interference penalty on Jets CB Brandin Echols on third-and-10; RB Melvin Gordon scored on the next play.
3. Moving Miller around. Minus OLB Bradley Chubb (ankle surgery), the Broncos shuttled Miller on at least five snaps to go against LT George Fant. Another cool wrinkle by coach Vic Fangio was using Johnson as a defensive end (three-point stance) for a third-and-1 play in the first half. Johnson was a part of the pass rush on the play that gained six yards.
4. Penalty script flipped. The Broncos flipped their penalty script, from defense in Week 2 to offense in Week 3. The offense had only two penalties in the first two games, but was called for six against the Jets — two on TE Noah Fant and one apiece on LG Dalton Risner, RG Graham Glasgow, Sutton and Bridgewater. Risner’s penalty was for taunting S Marcus Maye after Gordon’s touchdown. Risner told Fangio he didn’t do anything, but replays clearly showed him jawing toward Maye instead of, you know, celebrating with Gordon and Co., in the end zone. The defense had no penalties.
5. Few big rushes. Fangio wasn’t exaggerating when he said the Jets’ defense sold out to stop the run. The Broncos had 37 carries for 121 yards, but didn’t have an attempt of longer than 14 yards. We booked the Broncos with 10 “bad” run plays (gain of one or fewer yards) and 3 1/2 went to unblocked players. Risner and C Lloyd Cushenberry had 1 1/2 apiece and RT Bobby Massie one.
6. Strnad’s debut. ILB Justin Strnad made his first NFL start in place of Josey Jewell (season-ending chest injury). Strnad played 41 snaps and made four tackles. In man coverage, he allowed two completions for eight yards in four targets.
3,288 — Consecutive snaps streak for safety Justin Simmons, dating back to Week 1 of 2018, that ended Sunday.
+50 — Point differential for Broncos in Weeks 1-3, tied with Buffalo for best in NFL.
15.4% — Opponent’s third-down rate this year (2 of 13) when needing eight or more yards against Broncos’ defense.
71,985 — Announced attendance for Broncos’ return to having full capacity at home games.
Playing time review. Because of the blowout score and injuries, 20 players on offense and 22 players on defense saw snaps. Leaders on offense were TE Noah Fant (58 of 67), WRs Courtland Sutton/Tim Patrick (51), RB Melvin Gordon (36) and RB Javonte Williams (27). S Justin Simmons, S Kareem Jackson, CB Pat Surtain II and CB Kyle Fuller played 50 of 54 snaps. Notables included OLB Malik Reed (45), ILB Justin Strnad (41) and OLB Von Miller (38).
No red zone plays, few points. Like the Jaguars in Week 2, the Jets failed to enter the red zone, marking the first time the Broncos’ defense had no red zone possessions in consecutive games since at least 2000. The Broncos have allowed 26 points (six came on special teams), the third-lowest total in franchise history for Games 1-3. The 2009 team allowed 16 points during a 3-0 start, but finished 8-8 and the 1977 team allowed 19 during a 3-0 start and reached the Super Bowl.
Scheme error. The Jets should re-consider which tailbacks they trust in pass protection. Johnson’s first sack was when RB Ty Johnson whiffed on the blitzing linebacker, NT Mike Purcell got a pressure to set up DE Shelby Harris’ sack when the Jets asked RB Michael Carter to block Purcell and Johnson’s second sack was when he dusted Carter.
Two short-yardage play calls by the Jets were mysterious in the second half. Third-and-2 — empty backfield and pass break-up by ILB Alexander Johnson; fourth-and-1 — empty backfield and dropped pass by RB Ty Johnson. Just quarterback sneak it. … The Broncos didn’t mess around risking a repeat of Jacksonville KR Jamal Agnew’s 102-yard touchdown in Week 2. K Brandon McManus had five touchbacks in six kickoffs; the lone return put the Jets at their 12-yard line because of a penalty. McManus’ average hang time was 4.29 seconds. … OLB Von Miller and S Justin Simmons had the Broncos’ two missed tackles. … Booked for sacks allowed were LT Garett Bolles (2.25 seconds) and LG Dalton Risner (2.78 seconds).

Break out the sweaters, boots and pumpkin spice because fall is here! And while we will still get to enjoy all that fall has to offer in our region, the fall season has seen some major changes over the last few decades, all because of climate change.
Across the country, the most drastic changes regarding fall season warming can be felt in the western United States and the northeast. Some locations have seen multiple degrees of warming since 1970.
In Burlington, the average fall temperature has climbed by about four degrees in the last 50 years according to Climate Central. Along with an average of 18 more days above normal.
Fall warming can have many impacts including an extended mosquito and tick season, pollen allergies and worsening air pollution.
For the northeast, this can impact the fall foliage we have grown to know and love.
“We have had summer like weather linger into early fall, that tends to make it more of a gradual development” said Michael Snyder, the commissioner for Vermont Forests, Parks and Recreations.
Warmer temperatures are known to delay the foliage season and higher than average rainfall totals can act top keep leaves healthy and green for longer.
“All factors are in place right now and if we have that classic fall weather, bright sunny crisp days, cold night and a little bit of moisture that is when you see it go up to that next level of vibrancy throughout the state.” said Snyder.

NEW YORK (WPIX) – New York City’s Sanitation Department came under fire after videos showed workers throwing away fresh produce from an unlicensed street vendor.
The videos, posted by the Street Vendor Project on Saturday morning, showed at least two workers tossing individual fruits and vegetables as well as crates of produce into the back of a garbage truck.
The organization, which advocates for street vendors in New York City, alleged that thousands of dollars in fresh produce were trashed.
CONTENT WARNING: The video in the tweet below contains strong language.
An official with one of the involved agencies told WPIX the sanitation workers had no choice but to trash the produce due to New York City regulations and protocol regarding fresh food.
The Department of Consumer and Worker Protection was issuing a violation to the unlicensed vendor when they abandoned the items, the official said. The NYPD called in the sanitation workers to dispose of the crates of produce left behind when the vendor failed to return, according to DCWP.
City law states agencies should attempt to donate confiscated fresh food items, however, a Department of Health representative must first certify the food is safe.
The official said the Department of Sanitation had to trash the produce because the chain of custody of the food could not be verified as safe to consume, but the workers were forced to leave after a crowd of angry residents gathered at the scene.
When the workers returned later in the day, most of the food had been removed from the location by unknown individuals, the official said.
The video sparked outrage on social media and quickly went viral. A rally was held Sunday to condemn the city’s actions and call for fewer restrictions on street vendors.
“This video shows a small portion of an unfortunate situation, where abandoned material needed to be disposed of for the safety of the community. The Department of Sanitation is committed to our mission of keeping streets and neighborhoods safe, clean, and healthy,” the spokesperson said.
The Department of Consumer and Worker Protection told WPIX it would work with the involved city agencies to ensure this doesn’t happen again.
“The results of this multi-agency vending enforcement are not in line with the city’s policies. DCWP and its sister agencies who assist with confiscations when necessary will work together to ensure this type of wastefulness does not happen again,” the spokesperson said.
ALBANY, N.Y. (NEWS10) – According to District Attorney P. David Soares, on September 23, Dustin Donovan, 30, of Schenectady, was found guilty after a jury trial on multiple charges.
After hearing testimony at trial, a jury concluded that on November 9, 2019, Donovan tampered with the property of a dating partner with the intent to cause her substantial inconvenience after she ended their relationship and was trying to leave their residence.
The next day, Donovan drove to the victim’s parent’s home in Colonie and intentionally crashed his car into the victim’s car, which was parked in the road. The force of the crash severely damaged the victim’s car, and resulted in Donovan’s car catching on fire. Donovan also crashed into a National Grid utility pole, causing over $15,000 in damage.
Donovan faces up to 7 years in State Prison when sentenced on November 23, 2021.
Assistant District Attorney Caroline Murray of the Special Victims Unit handled the prosecution of this case.
ALBANY, N.Y. (NEWS10)- New York schools are required to submit the number of positive COVID cases to the New York State Department of Health during the 2020-2021 school year. Those numbers were made available on the state’s COVID-19 Report Card website.
The site was temporarily taken offline at the beginning of the school year while undergoing updates, making case information unavailable to the public. The site was back online on Monday. On September 23, the DOH said it would be available to the public no later than September 27.
ALBANY, N.Y. (NEWS10) — Congressman Paul Tonko has announced that nearly 20 schools in the Capital Region will be receiving over $6 million to help expand and improve internet access for students and teachers. The funding is part of the American Rescue Plan to help schools and libraries update services for remote learning during the pandemic.
“Throughout this COVID-19 crisis we have heard about the hardships millions of Americans are facing without access to broadband,” said Tonko. “We have heard from students unable to connect to their classes and submit assignments, and from educators who have to drive to parking lots with public Wi-Fi and teach from their cars.”
ALBANY, N.Y. (NEWS10) – The American Red Cross is asking people to donate blood because they are experiencing an emergency blood and platelet shortage. They must collect 10,000 additional blood products each week over the next month for the blood supply to recover and meet hospital and patient needs.
Blood donor turnout has reached the lowest levels of the year as many people delayed giving blood because of a return to the workplace and in-person learning, as well as a recent surge in COVID cases. As cases spiked in August, blood donor participation decreased about 10%, but blood product distributions to hospitals have remained strong, significantly outpacing blood donations in recent weeks.
The national Red Cross blood inventory is the lowest it’s been at this time of year since 2015, with less than a day’s supply of certain blood types in recent weeks. The supply of types O positive and O negative blood, the most needed blood types by hospitals, dropped to less than a half-day supply at times over the last month − well below the ideal five-day supply.
“Fall is typically a time when the blood supply rebounds as donors are more available to give
than during the busy summer months, but this year has presented a unique and serious
challenge,” said Dr. Pampee Young, chief medical officer for the Red Cross. “While it’s clear the
pandemic continues to weigh heavily on our minds, the Red Cross asks the public to remember
donating blood and platelets is essential to the many patients that rely on lifesaving transfusions
