The Denver Broncos are victorious in their regular season finale as they defeat the Los Angeles Chargers, 31-28. Interim HC Jerry Rosburg earned his first win as a head coach and players like Russell Wilson and Jerry Jeudy led the way.
Broncos Country wanted the team to head into the off-season with momentum and great statistical games from a few players. One of the players that fans wanted to see perform well in the regular season finale was wide receiver, Jerry Jeudy.
Not only did he have a great game, but he also recorded a career-high in receiving yards. Jeudy recorded:
- 5 Receptions on 6 Targets
- 154 Yards Receiving (AVG 30.8)
- 3 Rushes for 39 Yards
- 193 Total Scrimmage Yards (Career High)
Jeudy had a phenomenal game and led the way on offense. Credit to OC Justin Outten for a great game plan and getting the playmakers the ball in positions where they can succeed.
From having tremendous YAC plays to connecting on the deep passes with Wilson, Jeudy proved once again how talented he is when appropriately used in the offense.
This game against the Chargers capped off a career year for Jeudy and a special one that Broncos Country will never forget. Despite playing on a historically bad offense with Nathaniel Hackett leading the way, Jeudy still managed to have his best year with the Denver Broncos.
The career year that was for Jerry Jeudy
The 2022-23 season for Jerry Jeudy was filled with flashes of greatness and hope for Broncos Country. He was the most consistent player on the offense this year and statistically it was his most incredible year yet.
For starters, Jerry Jeudy is now third in Denver Broncos history for most receiving yards in his first three seasons. He passed Ashley Lelie (2,237) and Demaryius Thomas (2,268) as he recorded 2,294 receiving yards in his first three seasons with the Denver Broncos.
It’s remarkable how Jeudy achieved this when knowing he had Pat Shurmur for two years and playing on a historically bad offense this year. Nevertheless, the future is bright for him and the future HC/OC should maximize his talents next year with Wilson at quarterback.
Jeudy had an incredible year despite missing four games due to freak injuries. His 2022-23 season was a career year and he recorded the following:
- 67 Receptions (Career High)
- 972 Receiving Yards (Career High)
- 6 Receiving TDs (Career High)
- 1,012 Scrimmage Yards (Career High)
- 64.8 Receiving Yards per Game (Career High)
Jeudy also leads ALL wide receivers in yards per route run against man coverage with 4.14 Y/RR. He also was at the top of the list in a lot of advanced statistics this year, which shows how great he was this year.
Jerry Jeudy has come out publicly and defended his quarterback, Russell Wilson, on Twitter after "false statements" about his quarterback.
It was a season to forget for the Denver Broncos but a lot of positives came out of it and one of them is the career year Jerry Jeudy produced.
