Russell Wilson named NFC offensive player of the week

Quarterback Russell Wilson has been pretty darn close to the whole offensive show in Seattle this season and Week 13 was no exception.

Wilson completed 20-of-31 passes for 227 yards and three touchdowns while running for 31 yards and pulled off that old football classic known as “Galilean Transformation” on a pitch to running back Mike Davis during a 24-10 win that ended the Eagles’ nine-game winning streak. The win also pushed the Seahawks into playoff position with four games left on the schedule and the NFL named Wilson the NFC offensive player of the week in recognition of those efforts.

The three touchdown passes give Wilson 26 on the season. He’s also run for three touchdowns, which means he’s had a direct role in 29 of the 30 offensive touchdowns that the Seahawks have scored this season.

Should he keep up that pace while the Seahawks keep winning, Wilson will likely be in the conversation for more awards once the season comes to an end.

  1. the NFC is good, thats for sure, but pecking order at the top is very hard to call. If I had to pick though, I’d bet on the New Orleans Saints just because they have the best combo of QB skill and shot at homefield advantage.
    This Seahawks team could definitely make it through to the SB but I dont think theyll get a top 2 seed.

  2. Well deserved, he balled out against the Eagles. It was a forward pass but it didn’t affect the outcome, Seahawks were winning that game.Period.

  3. One of the best individual performances I’ve seen in a long time. And qb who was not russell wilson was sacked 10 times sunday night.

  4. What? How is that an overly impressive stat line? 20-31 for 227 and 3 touchdowns in 2017 is not that great… NFL is now trying to push this guy as an MVP candidate because the race is boring/will end up being Brady which just isn’t gonna move the needle nationally. Russ is really good but come on. He is one of these guys the media pushes because its great marketing to have a ethnic scrambler who is articulate and does the right thing off the field. Wentz has one so-so game and now we are gonna act like the barely over .500 Seahawks have the league MVP….

  5. It was a great performance, but he’s lucky he’s mobile or he’d be in a body cast. He was running for his life the entire game. That’s a precarious style of play for their offense. How long before he gets hurt?

  6. I am A certified Seahawks hater. But I watched Eagles that game and Russell Wilson is deserving of this. He was incredible. I never saw anybody escape a pass rush and make throws like that. Heck of a quarterback there.Congrats RW

    Wilson played a great game and carried his team to a win. The guy was running for his life most of the game and bought the time to make big plays downfield. Seattle is a 3-4 win team without Wilson. He is a deserving candidate for MVP.

  8. It’s not Wilson it’s Lynch.
    It’s not Wilson it’s the Legend of Boom.

    Lynch is gone. The Legend of Boom is gone.
    Yet Wilson just keeps on winning.
    He’s a lot like my hero. Tom Brady.
    Other than Brady there is no QB I have more respect for than Russel Wilson.
    He and Brady have a lot in common. Including fan disrespect.

    Russ is a stud….. In fact, he is pretty much everything Kaep is not.
    ——-
    Well, if you were there at C-Link field in 2013, which you weren’t bein’ as you’re a NE homer, you’d know that Kaep actually outplayed RW for most of 2013 head to head matches. Even Kaep’s interception throw to Crabtree/Sherman did not have to happen…9er’s had plenty of time on the clock, but were doomed due to poor coaching by Harbaugh…as were they doomed by Harbaugh’s faulty play calls in the SB, which otherwise would have had 9er’s SB champs, rather than the Ravens.

    Kaep was a STUD…until the 9er’s blew up the team…those are the facts.
