This season has been a colossal disaster for Russell Wilson and the Denver Broncos, who endured another embarrassing performance during Week 16. Both managed to hit new lows as the Broncos were demolished by the Los Angeles Rams, 51-14, while Wilson turned in the worst outing of his career.

Wilson finished Sunday's stinker with an impossibly low 3.6 QBR -- the worst mark of his career to this point. It was his first time ever finishing with a total QBR in the single digits.

Everything about Wilson's performance was brutal. He completed just 15-of-27 passes for 214 yards, 1 touchdown and 3 interceptions. He also got sacked six times for 40 yards and didn't find much success on the ground, either, rushing twice for 17 yards.

Denver responded by firing head coach Nathaniel Hackett on Monday, but it's clear that Wilson is largely to blame for the team's abysmal campaign as well. The former Super Bowl champ has been one of the worst quarterbacks in the NFL this year and hasn't come close to matching his career numbers, making him an obvious reason for the Broncos' failures.

Wilson and his teammates are likely in for another thumping this week when they travel to Kansas City to face the heavily favored Chiefs on Sunday. Denver is currently listed as a 13.5-point road underdog on FanDuel Sportsbook's NFL odds, and even that feels too generous based on the team's recent performance.
