Pro Bowl quarterback Russell Wilson will try to help the Denver Broncos end the drought next season.

The team last reached the playoffs when they won the Super Bowl 50 six years ago under the leadership of Payton Manning.

Since then, the Broncos have performed poorly despite having immense talent on both sides of the ball.

This time around, the team hopes Wilson is the missing part that will help the Broncos offense reach its full potential.

Therefore, they hope that the Broncos will start on the right note, and they will draw the best possible opponent for their newly started play-caller.

The Broncos will face the Seattle Seahawks to start night football on Monday.

It’s the perfect revenge game for Wilson after spending the first decade of his NFL career with the Seahawks.

He led the team to a Super Bowl win and became one of the league’s top quarterbacks while in Washington.

Extra motivation for Wilson

Wilson will play with an extra chip on his shoulder to prove his old team wrong.

Similarly, he wants to perform better than Seahawks starter, be it Drew Lock or Zeno Smith.

Despite a good run towards the end of the 2021 season, Seattle has decided it’s time to part ways with Wilson.

That said, they traded him to the Broncos for five picks, Lock, Shelby Harris and Noah Fant.

Wilson did not want to leave Seattle, especially if they could strengthen the offensive line around him.

But head coach Pete Carroll and general manager John Snyder felt it was time to move on.

Therefore, Wilson will have an extra zip on the ball as he finds his receivers downfield against the Seahawks.
