That’s the big takeaway from Week 8 and the Seattle Seahawks’ wild 41-38 shootout win against Deshaun Watson and the Houston Texans, a game in which Wilson accounted for all but three of his team’s 479 total offensive yards.
“If there were any doubts about Russell, what he can do, there is no limit,” Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll said. “That was a fantastic day.”
After his career-best passing performance against the Texans, Wilson moved into fifth in the NFL in passing yards, and is tied for second (with the Kansas City Chiefs’ Alex Smith, who plays Monday night) with 15 touchdown passes. It would not be difficult to argue that no quarterback is doing more with less than Wilson is.
The Seahawks’ running game is ranked 21st with an average of 97.6 yards per game. But nearly 28 yards per game are coming from Wilson, who was his team’s leading rusher against Houston with 30 yards. He’s been sacked 16 times and frequently has been hit or forced to scramble while playing behind a struggling offensive line. USA TODAY
