For the third time this season, the NFL will take over London. On Sunday morning, the Denver Broncos will take on the Jacksonville Jaguars at Wimbley Stadium. But unlike the first two London games airing on the NFL Network, the Broncos-Jaguars contest will stream exclusively on ESPN+ at 9:30 a.m. ET.
The Broncos (2-5) were hoping the addition of quarterback Russell Wilson would turn things around for the franchise. But Wilson has not lived up to the hype, completing just 59% of his passes while throwing for 1,442 yards, five touchdowns and three interceptions with a passer rating of 83.4. Wilson will return to the lineup on Sunday after missing last week's game against the New York Jets due to a hamstring injury.
"Russell is always going to think he can go," Broncos head coach Nathaniel Hackett said, per ESPN. "That's what you love about the guy. ... For us, we wanted to be sure we gave him time, time to get his mind right, body right, everything. Just being out here watching him throw, watching him move in the pocket, you felt a lot more comfortable with him than last week."
The Jaguars (2-5) need of a win. After winning two of their first three games, Jacksonville has lost their last four contests by a touchdown or less. Quarterback Trevor Lawrence has had a solid year, completing 63% of his passes while throwing for 1,707 yards, nine touchdowns and four interceptions with an 88.9 passer rating.
"It obviously hasn't been good enough to win more games, and that's the main goal," Lawrence said, per the Jaguars' official website. "That's really all we're talking about, but we've been able to move the ball on everybody we've played. We've had a lot of yards in pretty much every game we've played, but we've just got to kind of put together a complete game more frequently, more consistently. We look at all that, and we know what we're capable of. We've shown when we're at our best, and we're playing well, we're a great offense, so we've got to get back to that and being more consistent."
