Los Angeles Chargers


Russell Wilson has been one of the best quarterbacks in the NFL in the red zone and at the end of games for the Denver Broncos this year.

But he only has the 19th most passing yards in the NFL, behind Minnesota Vikings’ QB Joshua Dobbs, New Orleans Saints QB Derek Carr, Seattle Seahawks QB Geno Smith and Green Bay Packers QB Jordan Love.

Does Sean Payton need more from Russell Wilson in order for the Broncos to make the playoffs? Or is his efficient and timely play enough for the Broncos to make a run in their final five games against the Detroit Lions, Los Angeles Chargers, New England Patriots and Las Vegas Raiders?

Thanks to a three-game win streak, including victories over the Kansas City Chiefs and Buffalo Bills, Sean Payton and the Broncos are only one game out of .500.

As hot as the Broncos have been, however, there is one team on an even longer win streak. That team, the Minnesota Vikings, just happens to be coming to Empower Field at Mile High for Sunday Night Football.

Will the Vikings, who are riding a five-game win streak, snap Denver’s three-game win streak?

If not, how long will the Broncos’ streak extend?

Before the Denver Broncos’ season started, Sean Payton told USA Today he would be “pissed off” if the Broncos didn’t make the playoffs.

After the 0-2 start to the season, history would suggest Payton will be upset at the end of the year.

That is, unless, Payton and the Broncos are able to turn their season around with the remaining 15 games. Will they? What will Denver’s final record be after the slow start to the season?
