Look: Russell Wilson Posts 1-Word Message Before Monday Night Game

Denver Broncos quarterback Russell Wilson

Russell Wilson and the 2-3 Denver Broncos are on the road tonight as they square off with the 3-2 Los Angeles Chargers on Monday Night Football.

Just hours before kickoff, Broncos' quarterback Russell Wilson shared a photo to twitter with only one word in the caption: Opportunity. 

"Opportunity." Broncos' Russell Wilson tweeted before Monday night's game. 

Thus far in the 2022 season, the Denver Broncos haven't been able to capitalize on many opportunities. 

After trading for Russell Wilson in the offseason, Denver opened up the year as heavy favorites in Week 1 against Wilson's former team, the Seattle Seahawks. In a low-scoring and ugly game, Wilson and the Broncos lost 17-16. 

Following two less-than-impressive wins against Houston and San Francisco, Denver opened up AFC West play on the road against the Raiders in Week 4 with another loss, 32-23. 

Including a Week 5, 12-9 loss to Indianapolis, Russell Wilson has thrown just 4 touchdown passes this season. Wilson hasn't added much to the Denver offense with his legs, either, as he only has one game this season with over 25 yards or a rushing touchdown.

The Broncos will hope for better results tonight against a Chargers' defense allowing over 27 points per contest.
