Russell Wilson is the king of cringe, and ESPN’s Laura Rutledge tried very hard not to laugh in his face during their postgame interview.
This year, Wilson has made it his mission to annoy everyone with his “Let’s ride” catchphrase.
Wilson says the phrase before wins and losses.
After the 12-9 loss in OT, Russell Wilson ends his press conference with "Broncos Country, let's ride."

The Broncos were able to squeak out a win over the Jaguars in London, and Rutledge knew what was coming.
While interviewing Wilson, Rutledge was visibly cringing while Wilson did his “Let’s Ride” schtick.
