Pete Carroll was all about praising his quarterback following the Seattle Seahawks 27=17 win over the New York Jets on Sunday after Russell Wilson had one of his best games as a pro.

Wilson went through a rigorous rehab program all week after suffering a sprained MCL last week against the San Francisco 49ers. He was also dealing with a high ankle sprain. Theoretically either one of those injuries could keep a player out for 2-4 weeks (or more) but Wilson has yet to miss a game in his NFL career. Going up against the Jets in a game that many fans thought he should sit out of, Wilson was 23-of-32 for 309 yards and three touchdowns with no interceptions. He has five touchdowns and one interception on the season.
A lot of that production has to do with the incredible performance of tight end Jimmy Graham, who has come alive over the last two weeks following his devastating knee injury of a year ago. Carroll didn’t forget that either.
