The Denver Broncos have finally pulled out of the 2022 season. They had it all. Ugly penalties, laterals, turnovers, sacks, sixes and a partridge in a pear tree. The Los Angeles Rams beat them 51-14 and it was never close. Bring on the next two weeks and end this awful season.
1:00 PM: The The Broncos are gameday inactives Seems a bit casual for a change. All of the starters on the roster who have been inactive for the past several games are returning. Randy Gregory, Courtland Sutton, Dalton Risner, Ke’Von Williams and LaDavious Murray are questionable going into this game, but all will be active.
3:01 pm: Russell Wilson and the Broncos offense are off to a rough start in the first quarter. After the Rams opened the game with a field goal drive, Wilson threw two interceptions, both of which turned into touchdowns in a 17–0 lead over Denver.
3:15 pm: The Broncos offense finally got up, but a holding penalty stalled the drive. Brandon McManus made a 54-yard field goal to put the Broncos on the board for the first time in the game. Full first quarter review.
3:34 pm: Baker Mayfield and the Rams responded to a Broncos scoring drive by running down the field and punching it for another touchdowns to put the Rams up 24-3.
3:54 pm: Ram’s offense proves to be unstoppable on this day. Mayfield and the offense combined for a 14-play, 85-yard touchdown drive before the end of the first half to extend Denver’s lead to 31–3.
4:01 PM: Russell Wilson came alive with less than two minutes left in the half to put the Broncos 1 second into field goal range before McManus made a 49-yard field goal to cut the Rams’ lead to 31-6 at halftime. Full second quarter recap.
4:27 PM: The Broncos looked like they might score more points on their opening possession of the second half, but Wilson threw it in the end zone for an easy interception by Jalen Ramsey.
4:51 PM: The third quarter ended with the Rams scoring on every possession of the game. They drove late in the quarter after adding a field goal to their lead. They are 34-6 and waiting to score again. Full Third Quarter Recap.
5:12 pm: Russell Wilson hit Jerry Judy deep into the red zone, then found Greg Dulcich in the end zone for a touchdown to cut the Rams lead to 41-14. A two-point conversion was good.
5:18 PM: Despite Baker benching Mayfield, the Rams continued their scoring crusade to get another field goal over the Broncos, 44-14. They have scored on all eight of their possessions in this game.
5:24 PM: Brett Rybien came in for Russell Wilson and looked like he would lead the Broncos to some garbage time points, but then threw an ugly interception that was returned 80+ yards for the Big Six. The Rams drop a 50-burger on the Broncos. 51-14.
Hard to believe Los Angeles Rams Protectors Super Bowl Champions. They are beset by injuries every time Denver Broncos Have this season and both teams sit at 4-10 and look to finish the season on a high.
This game will once again come down to Russell Wilson and the Broncos’ offense. If they can get points, Denver’s stout defense will be able to limit Baker Mayfield and force him into some costly mistakes that could help the Broncos to their fifth win of the season.
Now Clint Kubiak is playing for a good 3-4 games and I feel the offense can continue to see more efficiency moving forward. I’d like to see them score 20+ points again this week.
Kickoff is set for 2:30 p.m. Mile High Time on Sunday, December 25, 2022 at SoFi Stadium in Inglewood, California. You can see Live stream of the game via FuboTV Or on CBS or Nickelodeon.
In conjunction with DraftKings Sportsbook, this year I will post all my exams on TallySight. For once, I actually like the Broncos here and think they can cover that 3-point spread advantage. As usual in Broncos games in 2022, I shot that 36 over/under. I’d be crazy not to deliver on the Broncos record on that front this season.
