Russell Wilson takes blame for Broncos' loss to Colts

Russell Wilson placed blame for the Denver Broncos' 12-9 overtime loss Thursday night the only place he could: on his own shoulders.

It's very simple. At the end of the day, I have to be better. I have to play better," he said, via the official transcript.

This group and this defence gave it their all tonight. We had a few crucial, successful drives on which we moved the ball.

Both of Wilson's horrifying interceptions were in scoring position. Early in the fourth quarter, he missed a wide-open KJ Hamler on the first by a considerable distance.

Wilson missed a lot of throws on Thursday, which prompted the home crowd to boo him. The quarterback had a 54.9 passing rating on 21 of 39 attempts for 274 yards and two interceptions.

Short dumps and failed throws from Wilson characterise the Broncos' passing offence, which is ineffective.
