Denver Broncos quarterback Russell Wilson received backlash after his terrible performance during a game against the Indianapolis Colts on Thursday night, where he threw two interceptions.
The first interception occurred when Wilson tried to pass the ball to K.J. Hamler but was intercepted by Colts safety Rodney Thomas II. The second interception happened with two minutes left in the fourth quarter when Stephon Gilmore intercepted a pass intended for Tyrie Cleveland in the end zone. Check out the top football odds!
“It’s very simple — at the end of the day I’ve got to be better, I’ve got to play better,” Wilson said.
“The defense played their butts off tonight, we had some key good drives. … At the end of the day throwing two interceptions can’t happen. Can’t happen. I let the team down tonight.”
Wilson struggled throughout the game, completing only 21 of his 39 passes for 274 yards with no touchdowns and two interceptions.
“We felt like we should have won that game. I felt like I let us down tonight,” Wilson said.
ClutchPoints’ Jedd Pagaduan said the game was a “masterclass in how to suck during a game for both participating teams.” Some NFL fans ranted on Twitter to express their disappointment over the Broncos’ performance.
“The best thing about this mess is that we have finally found something on which we can all agree as a people,” ProFootballTalk said on Twitter.
Some Broncos fans were so frustrated over the terrible game that they left the stadium before overtime started.
“If anything, at least the fans who left early were not around anymore to watch the Broncos botch their last drive of the game,” Rexwell Villas of ClutchPoints said.
According to Villas, this defeat may become “the last straw” for Broncos head coach Nathaniel Hackett. There will be a lot of pressure on Hackett if he still manages to keep his position.
