Russell Wilson threw for less than 100 yards in a game Thursday night for just the third time in his 12-season NFL career.
Behind Wilson’s 13-for-22 passing performance, the Denver Broncos lost 19-8 to the Kansas City Chiefs and fell to 1-5 on the season.
Wilson threw for 1 touchdown, 2 interceptions, and 95 yards. He was fired four times.
Wilson entered halftime with just 37 passing yards after being intercepted on the Broncos’ second possession.

I liked Russell Wilson’s performance enough to cost us another game#BroncosCountry
The Broncos looked like they might be shut out when Russell Wilson’s pass to Courtland Sutton in the end zone was ruled incomplete in the fourth quarter. Denver successfully challenged the ruling and was placed on the board.
That score, along with a successful two-point conversion on a Javonte Williams rush, marked the beginning and end of the Broncos’ successful offense Thursday night.
Their final drive ended with a fumble by running back Samaj Perrin.
The ignominious ending summed up how fans felt watching the Broncos offense on Thursday.

Palin groped on his knees. Nights like that. Such a season. #BroncosCountry

Our OL continues to be an issue considering Russell Wilson barely had time to pitch for much of this game. Once he was able to run on his own, we started moving the ball. #BroncosCountry
The Broncos will take a long break to regroup before seeking their second win of the season with a 2-3 victory over the Green Bay Packers on Oct. 22.
