Russell Wilson may not have fully regained his form, but he showed glimpses of his exceptional skills on Monday night, ensuring a critical away victory for the Denver Broncos, largely due to the Buffalo Bills’ assistance.
Wilson’s resilience in the fourth quarter culminated in a pivotal play, as he arced a deep pass to Jerry Jeudy while under duress from an aggressive blitz. The slightly underthrown pass drew a pass interference from Taron Johnson, leaving the Broncos in a prime position for a game-winning field goal.
Amid previous kicking mishaps, Wil Lutz’s initial game-winning attempt went wide right, seemingly sealing the Bills’ victory. However, the Bills’ mistake of having 12 men on the field revived the Broncos’ hopes, leading to Lutz’s successful second attempt and a 24-22 win.
The Broncos’ resurgence is undeniable, bouncing back from a 1-5 start to secure three consecutive victories. Notably, their defense, previously humiliated after a 70-point loss to the Miami Dolphins, managed to stymie the Bills for much of the first half, emblematic of their remarkable revival.
Conversely, the Bills are on a downward trajectory, plagued by multiple errors that allowed the Broncos to cling to victory. Despite grabbing a 22-21 lead late in the game, the Bills’ consistent struggles have resulted in a 5-5 record for the 2023 season.
Bills start with mistakes
The game got off to a rocky start for the Bills when James Cook fumbled on the first play, enabling the Broncos to recover. Cook was subsequently sidelined, only to witness Latavius Murray struggle to sway the game’s momentum in the Bills’ favor.
Buffalo’s troubles continued with an intercepted pass as Gabriel Davis faltered, and another costly interception from Josh Allen to close the first half, plunging the team into a 15-8 deficit amidst vocal frustration from the Bills’ fan base.
Despite ample opportunities for the Broncos to capitalize on Bills’ errors, they faced multiple setbacks, missing an extra point and failing to convert once possessing a field position advantage. Despite their first-half dominance, their lead was slim by halftime.
Broncos take 4th quarter lead
An erroneous fourth-down decision by the Bills offered them a reprieve in the third quarter, allowing them to equalize before committing another costly error, this time enabling the Broncos to recover a fumble, ultimately leading to Wilson’s remarkable drive and a crucial touchdown with a little over five minutes remaining.
The Bills mounted a valiant response, with Allen orchestrating a drive culminating in a late go-ahead touchdown; however, a dramatic series of events ensued that ultimately secured a remarkable victory for the Broncos on a night marred by glaring defensive lapses by the Bills.
