Russell Wilson has quickly turned into one of the most dominant quarterbacks in the NFL. Wilson’s performance against Drew Brees and the New Orleans Saints was nothing short of fantastic.
The Seahawks had this game in their win column before the first half came to an end. Wilson put 27 points on the board. He pass and rushed the ball well throughout the first two quarters as well as anyone we have seen this season.
He completed 22 of the 30 passes he threw and he had three touchdown passes in the game. He rushed the football for 47 yards on 8 carries and he was only sacked once.
The Seahawks offensive line did a great job protecting their quarterback in the game. The Seahawks defense played a great game too. They held Drew Brees to only 147 yards passing.
Who would have thought the Seahawks would dominate the Saints like this? Seattle is now 11-1 on the season and they now have a 3 game lead in the NFC west over the 49ers.
Wilson is proving his worth as an NFL quarterback. He was a great bargain as a 3rd round pick in the 2012 draft and his athleticism is second to none.
Pete Carroll couldn’t ask for a better quarterback. Wilson is on his way to being one of the best in the NFL. All this guy does is win. I can see the Seahawks making it to the Super Bowl if they continue to play like this.
