The Denver Broncos offense has not looked good this year, but you wouldn't know it by listening to Russell Wilson.

Wilson appeared overly optimistic after the team's ugly 11-10 win over the San Francisco 49ers in Week 3, saying that Denver's offense is "going to be unstoppable."

Denver Broncos News

Given how poorly the Broncos' offense has played thus far, it's hard to take Wilson's comments seriously. Denver has yet to score more than 16 points in a game this season and is averaging just 14.3 points per game -- the third-fewest in the NFL.

The Broncos' offense also seems to be getting worse, not better. Their yardage total has declined every week so far and their 11 points on Sunday marked a season-low. That makes Wilson's remarks even more puzzling, especially the part about the offense being "so close."

Clearly, the team still has a long way to go before becoming the "unstoppable" unit that Wilson envisions. A lot of that falls on Wilson, who's only managed 2 passing touchdowns so far and hasn't shown a ton of chemistry with his new receivers after spending 10 seasons with the Seattle Seahawks.

Broncos vs Raiders Week 4 Odds

Perhaps we'll see what Wilson is talking about when Denver takes on the 0-3 Las Vegas Raiders in Week 4. That will be a good opportunity for the Broncos' offense to finally break out against a Raiders defense that has allowed at least 24 points in all three games. Denver enters the game as 1-point road underdogs on FanDuel Sportsbook's NFL odds.
