  • Colts vs. Broncos was memorable, terrible and incredible.
  • Matt Ryan’s salary is more than $24 million this season.
  • Russell Wilson’s salary for the 2022 season is $57 million.

When it comes to NFL betting, there are good games and bad games.

Thursday Night Football between the Colts and Broncos was somehow both – a legendary field goal festival that became an instant classic for its imperfect offense. 

In the aftermath of the Colts’ 12-9 overtime win, the denizens of our collective online sports betting world have a whole lot of questions about the chief architects of the outcome.

Matt Ryan Salary Colts

Colts quarterback Matt Ryan is contracted to earn $24,705,882 for the 2022 season.

Matt Ryan Career Earnings

Prior to the 2022 NFL season, Matt Ryan had recorded $267,007,749 in career earnings – all of which came as quarterback for the Atlanta Falcons.

After this season, his career earnings will rise to $291,713,631.

Colts Backup QB

If 37-year-old Matt Ryan is benched, hurt or otherwise unable to play in 2022, the Colts will turn to the second man on the Indianapolis depth chart: Super Bowl champion Nick Foles.

Matt Ryan Trade

After the Colts parted ways with former quarterback Carson Wentz, they acquired longtime Falcons signal-caller Matt Ryan in March 2022 for a third-round pick.

A few weeks later, that draft pick ultimately turned into DeAngelo Malone, an outside linebacker from Western Kentucky. 

The Falcons’ NFL odds remained poor both before and after the trade.

Russell Wilson Salary

Russell Wilson is contracted to earn $57 million from the Denver Broncos this year. $50 million of it is structured as a signing bonus.

Prior to the beginning of the 2022 season, Wilson signed a 5-year contract with the Denver Broncos worth $242,588,236.

Russell Wilson Guaranteed Money

Thanks to a contract extension signed in September 2022, about $124 million of Russell Wilson’s $243 million contract was fully guaranteed upon signing.

Broncos Backup QB

Denver Broncos quarterback Russell Wilson is currently backed up by Brett Rypien.

Nathaniel Hackett Salary

The first-time NFL head coach is on a four-year deal worth about $4 million per year.
