Seahawks Russell Wilson named NFC Offensive Player of the Week

Seahawks

Russell Wilson started the 2020 NFL season on fire!

The Seahawks QB completed seven straight passes on the team's first offensive possession of the season, the last of which was a touchdown pass to Chris Carson.

Wilson kept the hot streak going, with having 12 straight completions, while he did eventually throw an incompletion, he never really cooled off for the rest of the game.

For the game, Wilson threw for four touchdowns for 322 yards and completed 88.6 percent of his passes with a passer rating of 143,1, a career-high and franchise-record that is also tied for the third-best mark in league history for a quarterback attempting at least 35 passes. 

For his performance and the 38-25 victory against the Atlanta Falcons, Wilson was named the NFC Offensive Player of the Week, marking the 10th time in his career Wilson has earned Player of the Week honors, adding to his franchise leading total.

In the 2019 season, Wilson earned Player of the Week honors twice the whole year, taking home that award in Week 2 and Week 9.

Week 1 is in the books, and look for Wilson to continue to his play for the rest of the year.
