Purrel and Wilson on the heated interaction

Both players acknowledged their interaction on the field post-game. There was no attempt to ignore the incident, and the players spoke about it to the press. Purrel talked about how his reaction was born out of frustration. He felt that the team needed a spark somewhere while playing. He said, “We want a spark on something. We’re all in this together, period. That’s the quarterback of our offense. They were about to take the field, obviously. We let up a touchdown, so we weren’t doing our job, but gotta get a spark somewhere.” The quarterback also commented on what had transpired between the two players.

The quarterback mentioned that there was no animosity between the two players. He mentioned that both of them are on the same page and said, “He came off after they kicked the field goal and he was pissed off and just said, ‘We’ve got to effing go.’ I agree. So, me and him are on the same page. There’s no animosity there at all.” There might not be any animosity, but the Broncos are in trouble. The team is ranked last on the AFC West table. They are also currently on a 3 game-losing streak. The question here is not just on Russell Wilson’s performance but about the team as a whole. Will the team be able to win any more games to bring some hope to their fans?
