The Denver Broncos have benched Russell Wilson in favor of Jarrett Stidham for the final two games of the season with the first being at home against the Los Angeles Chargers in Week 17. Head Coach Sean Payton noted that the change was about finding a spark to win a game.
“We need a spark, Payton said on Wednesday. “We need something right now. We’ll handle the long-term when we get there, but we’re not there. We’re trying to find a way to get this eighth win, and then if we’re able to do that, then obviously, we have another important game next weekend. That’s where we’re at right now.”
Kickoff is set for 2:25 p.m. Mile High time on Sunday, December 31, 2023 at Empower Field at Mile High in Denver, Colorado. The game will air on CBS with Tom McCarthy (play-by-play), James Lofton (analyst), and Jay Feely / Tiffany Blackmon (sideline) announcing.
