The Denver Broncos have taken action this week towards the end of a disappointing and embarrassing season, firing head coach Nathaniel Hackett along with two of his assistants.

Broncos fans hoping for a change at quarterback as well are going to be disappointed, however.

Denver Broncos Quarterback

According to interim head coach Jerry Rosburg, Russell Wilson will remain the team's quarterback despite putting up the worst performance of his career by QBR in Week 16. It wasn't an aberration, either, as Wilson's been a disaster all season long.

While other teams such as the Indianapolis Colts, Las Vegas Raiders and Washington Commanders have recently made changes at quarterback, Denver is sticking to its guns. It's a curious move in what's become a lost season, making the loyalty to Wilson appear misplaced.

In Rosburg's defense, Wilson did have one of his best games of the year against the Broncos' Week 17 opponent. The former Super Bowl champ threw for 247 yards and a season-high 3 touchdowns against the Kansas City Chiefs in Week 14 before exiting the game early with a concussion.

Wilson will try to replicate that performance against Kansas City on Sunday. Denver is currently listed as a 12.5-point road underdog on FanDuel Sportsbook's NFL odds.
