Jake Plummer threw for 225 yards and no interceptions, Mike Anderson ran for three scores and the Broncos recorded their first shutout in eight years, staying on track to host their first playoff game since their 1998 Super Bowl season.
New York lost its fifth straight, suffering its first shutout since 1995 and went without a touchdown for the third time this season.
Jets QB Brooks Bollinger was knocked out with a concussion that left him vomiting on the sideline. Vinny Testaverde replaced Bollinger and finished with 152 yards, including a few second-half drives. But he lost a fumble on the second snap he took and four of the first five drives he engineered ended in turnovers, leading to New York's second consecutive embarrassing loss.
John Lynch and Champ Bailey had interceptions for Denver and Michael Myers recovered a fumble caused by Ian Gold's sack -- a few of the many highlights for a Denver defense that finished with four sacks and five turnovers.
Denver held RB Curtis Martin to seven yards on four carries, his worst output since a five-yard game early in 2002 when he was hurting and didn't play much.
