Broncos take lead as Russell Wilson finally gets going in third quarter

Mike Florio and Peter King make their picks on the players and coaches who are under the spotlight heading into Sunday's slate of action in Week 8 of the 2022 NFL season.

Broncos quarterback Russell Wilson is finally getting the offense moving.

An impressive third-quarter drive saw Wilson march the Broncos’ offense down the field, culminating in a Melvin Gordon one-yard touchdown run that gave Denver a 14-10 lead over Jacksonville.

It isn’t all good news for the Broncos’ offense, as center Lloyd Cushenberry has been ruled out with a hip injury. But the Broncos are finally starting to make some plays.

Now it’s on Jaguars quarterback Trevor Lawrence, who has been struggling against a good Broncos defense, to see if he can get something going.
