The Denver Broncos finally got their first win of the season.
It wasn’t easy, it definitely wasn’t pretty, and it took a lot of help from the Chicago Bears, but they still pulled it off.
Sean Payton’s team was trailing by three scores late in the third quarter and put together an epic rally to take home a three-point win.
Following the win, NFL analyst Sam Monson talked with Steve Palazzolo on the PFF NFL Podcast, stating that even though the Broncos’ defense is ‘a joke,’ Russell Wilson has looked much better this season.

Monson stated that it’s still highly unlikely that we’ll ever see the old version of Russell Wilson on the field again; this version was definitely more efficient and similar to what he was throughout the entire course of his career.
Vance Joseph’s defense has been one of the worst to start the season, and that’s a big surprise.
Besides his defensive expertise, we’re talking about a team whose defensive personnel made people think they would rank among the best defensive units in the league, just like what happened last season.
The Broncos have allowed 98 points in the past two weeks, and while 28 is way less than 70, they still made the Bears’ offense look like a Super Bowl-caliber team, which is definitely not the case.
Sean Payton and Vance Joseph have a lot of work to do to right the ship, but at least they finally managed to get that first win of the season and the new era.NEXT: Sean Payton Comments On Broncos 'Crisis' To Start The Season
