For the second one week in a row, the Denver Broncos (2-4) went to time beyond regulation. For the second one week in a row, they misplaced.
In another utter waste of prime-time tv, the Broncos fell 19-16 to the Los Angeles Chargers in a recreation stuffed with consequences, dangerous offensive line play, dangerous play-calling, dangerous training, and a kicker with a foul hamstring taking part in the function of hero. Seattle Seahawks enthusiasts will have to be thanking Dustin Hopkins for making his 4 box targets, together with the winner in time beyond regulation. Personally, I imagine he will have to take Sunday off for his valiant efficiency.
Russell Wilson began the sport 10/10 for 116 yards and a landing to rookie Greg Dulcich.
It seemed like antique Russ used to be again. Although with that integrated this play that was a sack.
After that, he used to be 5/18 for 72 yards. In the second part and time beyond regulation he used to be 3/11 for 15 yards, and subtracting sacks Denver had -9 web yards passing after halftime. It used to be another dangerous show from him and the remainder of this turgid Broncos offense. Maybe that is what Russell Wilson looks as if with out his as soon as elite speeding talents and elusiveness, or the shoulder harm is worse than is being reported, or his decline is so much sharper than anticipated, however that is the worst that Wilson has ever appeared over a span of this many video games. Whatever the case, I doubt Nathaniel Hackett might be his head trainer in 2023.
Update: Evidently Wilson picked up another harm.
Perhaps no longer coincidentally, Denver’s passing assault cratered after cornerback JC Jackson used to be benched for a move interference penalty and more than one busted coverages that successfully led to 13 of Denver’s 16 issues.
Justin Herbert threw 57 passes and handiest controlled 224 web yards, throwing an interception that resulted in Denver’s handiest moment part scoring force (which traveled 0 yards). One of probably the most thrilling younger quarterbacks within the league used to be lowered to a slew of five-yard passes to operating backs and stick routes to receivers.
Overtime used to be dismal. No one controlled a unmarried first down! We may’ve simply had a tie if no longer for rookie Montrell Washington muffing his moment punt of the evening. Unlike the 1st time, this fumble would cross to the Chargers. In his protection, his teammate located himself extraordinarily and were given blocked into him. Much like we noticed within the Seahawks-49ers recreation when Xavier Crawford used to be blocked into Tyler Lockett, inflicting a misplaced fumble, it’s no longer a penalty.
Contact is waived off if a passive participant is compelled into the ball/receiver. DEN6 is for sure positioning for energetic blockading and in point of fact positioned himself within the worst imaginable place rather then operating proper into his receiver. percent.twitter.com/KDeHgWSxCm

Thank you, Chargers. Now it’s time for the Seahawks to overcome them this Sunday in LA.
Pick Status: The Seahawks can be choosing at No. 7 and No. 39 within the 2023 NFL Draft, courtesy of the first- and second-rounders that Seattle received within the Russell Wilson business.
Next week: A house recreation in opposition to the New York Jets (4-2), one of the most NFL’s marvel tales this season. Entirely imaginable that as just right because the Broncos protection is, the Jets win anyway as it’s so transparent that you do not want an efficient offense to succeed by contrast Denver staff.
