It's safe to say things didn't quite go according to plan for Russell Wilson during his first season in Denver.
A nine-time Pro Bowler and NFL champion with the Seattle Seahawks, Wilson fell on hard times in the Mile High City, losing 10 of his first 14 games as a Bronco. Denver was held to 10 points or less in three of those defeats including a borderline unwatchable 12-9 primetime loss to the Indianapolis Colts that featured 12 punts and six fumbles.
The 34-year-old Wilson finished the season with career-lows in passing touchdowns and TD% and the worst quarterback rating of his 10-year career.
It was quite a fall from grace for a player who led the Seahawks to back-to-back Super Bowl appearances and topped the NFL in both passer rating (2015) and passing yards (2017).
Here is Wilson's career regular season and postseason record versus all 32 teams in the NFL.

Wilson vs the Green Bay Packers
Russell Wilson's history against the Green Bay Packers has been interesting, to say the least.
Wilson's second career win came on an incredible heave at the buzzer to lift the Hawks over the Packers on Monday Night Football back in 2012.

Wilson's magic didn't stop there, as he helped lead an incredible comeback in the 2014 NFC Championship game, capped off by a 35-yard game-winning touchdown throw to Jermaine Kearse in overtime.

That said, Russ had arguably the worst game of his career against Green Bay in 2016, throwing for five interceptions in a 38-10 blowout loss at Lambeau Field. In fact, Wilson is 0-4 in the games he has played at the historic Wisconsin stadium.

Wilson vs the Los Angeles Rams
Wilson dominated much of the NFC West during his time in Seattle but always had problems with the Los Angeles Rams. Stemming from their time in St. Louis, the Rams always gave Wilson issues with their pass rush, led by All-Pro defensive tackle Aaron Donald.
For what it's worth, Wilson hasn't had much more luck against L.A.'s "other" team. The decorated QB is now 0-3 against the Chargers following an overtimke loss in Week 6 of the 2022 season.
Wilson vs the New England Patriots
Russell Wilson may be 3-1 against the Patriots in the regular season, but his name and New England will always be associated with Super Bowl XLIX.
Wilson was on the verge of a second straight Super Bowl win, as the Seahawks were in the midst of a dynasty. Unfortunately, the roster around them started to crumble following the heart-wrenching loss to the Pats.
If the Seahawks had won this game, there's a good chance Wilson would have appeared in at least one more Super Bowl, and would perhaps still be a member of the team that drafted him.

Wilson vs the Philadelphia Eagles
Russell Wilson is a perfect 6-0 against the Philadelphia Eagles, including a playoff win in Philly back in the 2020 Wild Card round where he threw for 325 yards and rushed for 45 in a 17-9 road victory.
Wilson threw for nine touchdowns to just one lone interception during those six games, for an average passer rating of 101.1.
Good news for Eagles fans: Now that Wilson is in a different conference than the Eagles, he'll be seeing them less often. Denver and Philadelphia aren't scheduled to play one another in 2022.
Wilson vs the San Francisco 49ers
Wilson's history with the San Francisco 49ers dates back to his rookie season when the two teams began a heated rivalry and eventually clashed in the 2013 NFC Championship.
Wilson got the best of Colin Kaepernick and the vaunted 49ers' defense in that game. He ultimately won his first ever Super Bowl two weeks later against his future team, the Denver Broncos.
Wilson is a career 17-4 against San Francisco — by far his most amount of wins against any team in the NFL. Despite no longer playing in the same division as them, Wilson faced the 49ers in Week 3, and barely powered the Broncos to an ugly 11-10 win. He threw for 184 yards and ran for 17 more in the low-scoring, grind-it-out victory.
