And NBA star Kevin Durant is watching closely. He destroyed Wilson for making the Broncos the punching bag of the NFL.

Ever since Wilson moved to the Broncos from the Seahawks, he hasn’t been his old self. Wilson has struggled to adapt to life in Denver and the results on the pitch show just that. The Broncos have become a punching bag in the NFL. Wilson might have to find inside him the quarterback that the world saw at Seattle.

The Seahawks traded Russell Wilson to the Broncos in the offseason this spring. In return, the Seahawks got three players and multiple future draft picks. But who really won in this trade?

Wilson hasn’t really set the field on fire as the Broncos might have expected. The QB is 17th in the league in terms of passing yardage, having thrown just 2,369 yards of passes. He has just eight passing touchdowns to his name till Week 12, making him 28th in the league in that regard. Wilson has also thrown five pass interceptions this season so far. With him under center, the Broncos are one of the lowest-scoring teams in the NFL.
