It’s a battle of former Chicago Bears’ coordinators tonight on Thursday Night Football as head coach Adam Gase and his New York Jets hosts the Denver Broncos and head coach Vic Fangio.

Gase and Fangio worked together in Chicago as a part of John Fox’s staff initial coaching back in 2015, with Gase coordinating the offense and Fangio running the defense.

Gase’s work with Jay Cutler that year led to him getting a head coaching gig in Miami in 2016, while Fangio stuck around through Fox’s three years in Chicago and for year one of the Matt Nagy era before leaving to coach the Broncos in 2019.

Neither team has a win in 2020, so who’ll get that first W of the season tonight?

Gase has been rumored to be on the hot seat as his Jets’ team seems to have regressed this year, and some Denver fans are starting to turn on Fangio as his team hasn’t progressed either.

To be fair, these teams have had several injuries they’ve been dealing with, but dropping to 0-4 could spark a panic mode for either franchise.
