Right off the bat, Wilson was asked about what happened on the last play.

Wilson said that Krull “made a play,” but somehow, the Broncos still succumbed to the Houston Texans. Wilson mentioned how the team tried to win these close games, but this time, they couldn’t.

Wilson seemed pretty confident in the team and its defense despite all of this. But offensively, they couldn’t do much, as Russell Wilson had three sacks and three interceptions in the game. He only passed for a dismal 186 yards, completing only 15 of his 26 passes. He came out with a pass completion rate of 57.7% and a QBR of 20.4. Though Wilson had one TD, the Broncos couldn’t do much against the Texans and their QB CJ Stroud.

CJ Stroud leads all the so-called “MVP QBs” like Patrick Mahomes, Jalen Hurts, and Lamar Jackson. So far, in the 12 games he has played, he has passed for 3,540 yards and has 20 touchdowns with only five interceptions. He is well on his way to being the rookie of the year and there is a real chance of him getting inducted into the MVP conversation this year.
