The Denver Broncos lose a heartbreaker in the season opener on Monday Night Football against the Seattle Seahawks, 17-16. The 12’s spoiled the return of Russell Wilson as Lumen Field was a hostile environment (as expected) for the whole game.

Wilson posted some great numbers in his first game as a Bronco. He completed 69% of his passes for 340 yards. Wilson and this offense generated 433 total yards of offense yet could not get points on the board.

Nathaniel Hackett had the run game and offense looking good throughout the duration of the game. The play calling was not bad but the difference maker was the execution at the goal line in the second half and the questionable decision-making at the end of the game.

The two-minute drill for the Broncos included the most important and impactful plays that determined the game. Let’s take a deeper dive and break down the four plays in the two-minute drill that led to the end of the game.

Russell Wilson completes it to Javonte Williams on 3rd & 2 to extend the drive

Russell Wilson understands that he needs to get this offense into field goal range and take whatever the defense is giving him. Wilson did just that.

When he takes the snap, Williams leaves the backfield and goes into the flat uncovered. Wilson has an easy first-down completion and checks it down. Williams evades two tacklers and picks up the first down and more.

The offense seems to be on a roll and fans back home are confident that this offense will get into field goal range.
