Can Russell Wilson break the rookie TD record held by Peyton Manning?

It's still early with 6 games left, but Russell Wilson has a chance to break Peyton Manning's rookie TD record (26) which was set back in 1998. Currently Wilson has 15 TD's so he needs to averages 2 touchdowns per game the rest of the season to break the record.

He has 3 away games and 3 home games remaining, the 3 home games are all versus division opponents with the Rams here the final week. He has some tough games ahead of him vs good to great defenses. A 3 TD performance in 1 or 2 of the games would obviously really help his cause.

Here are the remaining games for the Seahawks:

Week 12: Away vs Miami

Week 13: Away vs Chicago

Week 14: Home vs Arizona

Week 15: Away vs Buffalo

Week 16: Home vs San Francisco

Week 17: Home vs St. Louis

Think he can do it? Obviously winning and going to the playoffs is the most important thing over individual records, but I think it's pretty cool that Wilson as a 3rd round pick who wasn't expected to start the season has a legitimate shot at breaking a rookie record held by a future hall of famer.
