In a game that really could have gone either way, the Denver Broncos left Wembley Stadium with a 21-17 win over the Jacksonville Jaguars to take Russell Wilson & Co. to 3-5 on the year.

Offensive spotlight: Russell Wilson wasn't electric by any means, but he did put together one of his best games as a member of the Broncos. The veteran went 18-of-30 for 252 yards, one score and one interception, with two big-time throws to one turnover-worthy play.

On passes thrown 20 or more yards downfield, Wilson went 2-of-5 for 85 yards.

Defensive spotlight: K'Waun Williams may have come away with the game-ending interception, but that wasn't the only play he made in London. Targeted five times in coverage, he gave up just two catches for 10 yards and one first down, allowing a passer rating of just 8.3 into his coverage.

Rookie spotlight: With James Robinson now out of the picture, Travis Etienne acquitted himself well in the every-down role. He ran for 156 yards on 24 carries, with 97 of those yards coming after contact. He moved the chains 11 times and forced seven missed tackles.

Offensive line spotlight: The 3.21-second average time to throw didn't help, but the Broncos' offensive line allowed three sacks, one hit and five hurries — not exactly a “success,” given the injuries Wilson is reportedly dealing with.
