Russell Wilson sacrificed his legs, heart and head. Not enough to end losing streak to Chiefs.


1. Russell Wilson showed fight. And heart. An L is an L is an L. And there’s no way to sugar-coat 14 consecutive losses to the Chiefs. But Russell Wilson gave his legs, heart and eventually his head to the cause Sunday. And you’re not just drinking Orange & Blue Kool-Aid if you’re thinking the Broncos might have tied, or even won, this game if No. 3 had been healthy enough to finish it. (He wasn’t, ruled out with a concussion. The replays of the hit he took near the goal-line were flat-out scary.)

2. Jeudy: Gimme the rock! With Courtland Sutton out and the Broncos down 27-0, the offense needed someone to step up. After cameras showed No. 10 exploding with rage earlier in the game, wideout Jerry Jeudy obliged. And brought back some memories of Mile High glory days of old along the way. Jeudy’s three receiving scores were one off the single-game Broncos franchise record. And it was the most by a Denver wideout since the late Demaryius Thomas did it on Nov. 23, 2014.
