After Russell Wilson did all the cooking on Sunday, he got his just desserts Wednesday.

The Seahawks quarterback was named NFC offensive player of the week, after his four-touchdown outburst against the Falcons.

Wilson completed 31-of-35 passes for 322 yards. That 88.6 percent completion rate was the third-highest in league history, among games with a minimum of 35 attempts). He also posted a 143.1 passer rating.

Letting Wilson take on more of a role in the offense — as opposed to being so run-heavy — seems like the smart play, especially with what he produced this week.
