Melvin Gordon “not happy” with Broncos running game after blowout victory over Jets

The Broncos’ one-two-rushing stroke of Melvin Gordon and Javonte Williams combined in 90 yards and two touchdowns Sunday, enough to pace Denver to a route of the Jets at Empower Field.

While that may have been good enough to beat the humble Jets, Gordon stressed that the roaring attack is not good enough if the Broncos will fight long-term this season.

“(Javonte and I) have been okay – and just okay – but I feel we can get better,” Gordon said after the match. “I am certainly not happy with how we did (today) … We should have done better. Our expectation for our group is far higher than today.

“We have some tough matches on the way, where we really have to see what we are about. There’s no time to be content with scoring – we should have had two touchdowns each, and those are the expectations we have. Today was not good enough, but it was good enough to get the victory, and that’s all that matters. ”

Gordon had 61 yards on 18 carries and a touchdown in the second quarter, while Williams finished with 29 yards on 12 carries after getting the Broncos early ahead with a score. Both tailbacks’ touchdowns were one-yard power runs, and the Broncos had 121 yards rushing total.

It’s not quite the ground production the Broncos expected against New York, but for the third week in a row, the opponents’ focus on Gordon and Williams opened up the passing game for quarterback Teddy Bridgewater.
