DENVER-- Denver Broncos quarterback Russell Wilson was still sermonizing the philosophy of occasion and belief Thursday night, but in the wake of an unattractive 12- 9 overtime loss to the Indianapolis fledglings in which he threw two interceptions, Wilson didn't hash words on his play.
It's veritably simple-Denver Broncos Colts colts vs broncos at the end of the day I have got to be better, I have got to play better," Wilson said." The defense played their butts off tonight, we had some crucial good drives. At the end of the day throwing two interceptions can not be done. Can not be. I let the platoon down tonight."
Wilson threw his alternate interception with just over two twinkles to play in regulation when the Broncos had a chance to put the game down. And his errant gamble on fourth- and- elevation from the fledglings' 6- yard line in overtime, when he did not see an open KJ Hamler and tried to squeeze the ball into Courtland Sutton rather, was the last play of the game.

The Broncos, Wilson, and trainer Nathaniel Hackett included, tagged to go for the palm with over two twinkles left in overtime rather than get a first down and also have the chance to throw for an implicit winning touchdown.
" We had a good play call on. Guy made a good play," Wilson said." I was ready to move around if I demanded to. We went for it. We did not want to end in a tie, we wanted to win the game. I have got to find a way to make a play, whatever it takes. Russell Wilson Matt Ryan broncos vs colts Wilson, who finished 21- of- 39 passing for 274 yards with no touchdowns and two interceptions, was out of feathers for important of the night. He was just 9- of- 17 passes for 69 yards in the first half.
The Broncos' broncos Jerry Jeudy Courtland's sutton red zone straits continued as they finished without a touchdown and have scored just two touchdowns in their three home games combined. They entered the night last in the league in red zone scoring and will not climb the rankings any after Thursday.
Wilson threw both of his interceptions in the fourth quarter, both on plays that started outside fledglings home when points on either of those drives probably would have given the Broncos the palm.
- We felt like we should have won that game. I felt like I let us down tonight,'' Wilson said.
He added" Lot of seasons left, lot of occasions. ( Indianapolis Colts Melvin Gordon colts ) so much good, but the bad is bad. We should have won that game. It's on me."
Wilson compactly spoke with a visibly worried Hamler after the game, and several of Wilson's teammates also stopped to talk to Wilson as he sat in front of his locker, in full livery, well over an hour after the game had ended. Got to finish, execute,
Hamler said of the obnoxious struggles." We just got to execute better. Defense( is) fighting their burro off, and we just got to back them up more. I did everything I can. I fought my burro off. The offense fought its burro off."
Wilson was checked for a concussion in the alternate half Thursday but cleared to return by the medical staff on point.
" I answered all of their questions and everything," he said.
Wilson had also been listed on the Broncos' injury report in the days leading up to the game with a right shoulder injury. It's having these negative plays," Wilson said." That is on us. That is all on us as players. It starts with me. It's not on trainer Hackett, it's not on anybody differently."
