Russell Wilson and the Denver Broncos offense saw some actual efficiency last week. For a half anyway. Completion percentages were up and scoring could have been in the 20s had Melvin Gordon not fumbled away a touchdown along with his job.
The offense will face a much better defense in the Carolina Panthers. The injury-riddled offensive line is going to face a Panthers defense that is very good at generating pressure.
“They’re a good defense,” Head Coach Nathaniel Hackett said this week. “[DE Brian] Burns—he’s been a very good player throughout his time in the league. They do a lot of unique things from their pressure. They love to pressure. They are one of the highest pressuring teams in the league. They’ll bring it from all over and they’ll definitely test Russell [Wilson]. He’s going to have to follow his protection rules and understand what he’s going to be facing because they’re going to throw everything at him. There’s going to be some things that they haven’t done before that they’re probably going to throw at him. They’re really good defense with their pressure schemes and they’re stout up front. ‘95’ (Panthers DT Derrick Brown) is a monster in the middle. They’ve got a lot of good football players.”
The only way Denver wins this game is through continued good defensive effort on their side and for Wilson and the offense to finally behave like a functional unit out there for 60 minutes. Something they have not done through ten games yet.

Broncos-Panthers Betting Odds
According to DraftKings Sportsbook, the Broncos opened slight 2.5-point road favorites over the Panthers heading into Week 12. However, as the week wore on the line has shifted slightly to a 1.5-point margin in favor of Denver with an over/under at 36. I think the Broncos finally win again here and give us all a brief break from the season-long offensive struggles.
This week in our SB Nation Reacts survey, we asked Broncos Country how many more games they thought Denver would win. A vast majority said zero to two games, with most of those thinking 1 or 2. That would send the Broncos towards a record somewhere between 3-14 and 5-12. Ooof.
For this season, we have completely revamped our entire podcasting efforts for 2022. We have added more long-form shows, but have also begun a daily morning news podcast we have dubbed Horse Tracks to keep fans updated on everything that’s going on in a shorter type of episode.
Here are the long-form shows we produce each week.
