Russell Wilson now has more regular-season wins than any quarterback in @Seahawks history, and it comes thanks to his 26th game-winning drive in the 4th quarter or overtime, the second most in the league since 2012 (Stafford).— Aaron Levine (@AaronQ13Fox) November 25, 2018

Win or lose, very few QBs I love to watch more than @DangeRussWilson Just a baller.— Colin Cowherd (@ColinCowherd) November 25, 2018
Games like this are why there should be no list of elite NFL quarterbacks that does not include Russell Wilson. #Seahawks— Mike Greenberg (@Espngreeny) November 25, 2018
In Pro Bowl voting released last week, Wilson was not listed among the top-10 for the quarterback position. Wilson is the only QB this season to not post a rating under 85 in any one game. He has thrown for at least two touchdowns in 10 of 11 games, only Philip Rivers has more. He’s played seven of his 11 games on the road.
A lot of people are now saying that Russell Wilson is good. However, will he ever become great?
Reports on that should be coming soon.
