The Denver Broncos have a chance to do something special this year. They have a chance to win big in 2022, just because of the team they have built.
Russell Wilson is one of those guys. He is one of the players that you say no matter how the rest of the team is looking if he’s on the team they are competing. Now, you factor in the team around Wilson, and it makes you feel even better if you are a fan.
Courtland Sutton, Jerry Jeudy, Tim Patrick, when he comes back, and eventually Montrell Washington will be the receiving corps he has for the next few years, which is a solid group.
Then factor in the running backs. This year there is Javonte Williams and Melvin Gordon, who may be the best running back duo in the AFC or one of the best.
And lastly, they have an elite defense, one that has allowed just 13 points per game so far and can get to the quarterback at will.
Right now there are struggles, yes, but they have a chance to get right this week, solely because of who their quarterback is.
This crazy stat shows that the Broncos are bound to win on Sunday Night Football against the San Francisco 49ers.
Broncos’ quarterback just wins
Wilson is a winner. I think we all know that. I mean, of the 10 years in Seattle, the Seahawks had one losing season, and it was the last year. Wilson missed some games due to injury, yet the team was still 6-8.
But, that isn’t the crazy stat that almost guarantees the Broncos a win.
Wilson is 19-3 in primetime football, meaning any Sunday night, Monday night, or Thursday night game he has played in, he has won all but three. Had the Broncos won Monday in Week 1, he would be 20-2.
The Broncos will have a tough battle ahead of them on Sunday, as the 49ers are one of the most complete teams in the league. Their defense is stout, including their elite pass rush and great linebackers.
Their offense is built on Deebo Samuel and everything he can do, along with one of the league’s best tight ends in George Kittle.
If the Broncos can win this game, against this tough of an opponent, I think the respect for them around the league will have no choice but to go up. And, they have a great opportunity to do so.
