The Denver Broncos are on a three-game losing streak after dropping a heartbreaker to the Los Angeles Chargers.
Dustin Hopkins‘ field goal sent the Broncos to an unexpected 2-4 record.
It’s difficult to fathom the team having a losing record because they were a quarterback away from becoming a contender.
That’s why Russell Wilson‘s addition renewed their fans’ enthusiasm and optimism.
Unfortunately, expectations can be different from reality, and the Broncos are in a slump.
The offense cannot generate enough points even if their defense allowed just six touchdowns all season.
That’s why Wilson wasn’t in a celebratory mood anymore during their Week 6 postgame press conference.
Russell Wilson didn't end his postgame press conference with “Let’s ride”.
Might be the first time this season he didn't.

NFL insider Dov Kleiman tweeted, “Russell Wilson didn’t end his postgame press conference with ‘Let’s ride’. Might be the first time this season he didn’t.”
It’s difficult to motivate the team and its fan base, especially if they are not seeing favorable results.
That’s why Wilson only said a few words following the ugly loss.
He left the podium immediately after thanking the media members.
No End In Sight For Denver’s Woes?
Unfortunately, they will have Wilson for a while after signing a five-year, $245 million extension.
But his presence could be the reason behind the Broncos’ disappointing average of 15.2 points per game.
They are also 22nd in total yards with 329.3 per game.
The Broncos can inch closer to .500 with a win over the New York Jets in Week 7.
They will also face the Jacksonville Jaguars in Week 8 before their Week 9 bye.
