Gordon, who joined the Broncos this offseason, ran the ball 23 times for 107 yards and two touchdowns. He capped his "Thursday Night Football" performance with a 43-yard touchdown run that sealed the Broncos' win.

The Wisconsin product now has 51 total touchdowns in his career, which makes him just the eighth active running back to tally at least 50 combined scores.

His performance against the Jets was also his 10th career 100-yard rushing game.

Gordon would be the first Bronco to be named FedEx Ground Player of the Week since Phillip Lindsay won the award in 2018 for his Week 13 performance.
