Russell Wilson

The Denver Broncos lost an extremely ugly game against the Indianapolis Colts on Thursday night in which quarterback Russell Wilson threw for two interceptions and zero touchdowns as part of an atrocious Broncos offense. But after the game, Wilson wasn’t hiding from criticism.

Wilson met with reporters after the game and he was willing to shoulder the blame for his interceptions and the team’s lackluster offensive performance on Thursday night, saying “I let the team down.”

“It’s very simple,” Wilson told reporters after the game, according to Pro Football Talk. “I’ve got to be better. I’ve got to play better. . . . Throwing two interceptions can’t happen. I let the team down tonight.

It wasn’t just the two brutal interceptions, however. Wilson was bad all around. The Broncos quarterback threw for just 274 yards with just a 53.8 completion percentage in the game. He also failed to see a wide-open receiver on the final play of the game that would have given the Broncos a touchdown and the victory.

But despite Wilson’s shortcomings, he can share the blame for the loss with head coach Nathaniel Hackett who made several questionable decisions that had fans calling for him to be fired following Thursday night’s loss.

All in all, things are not going too well in Denver.
