NFL: Arizona Cardinals at Seattle Seahawks Joe Nicholson-USA TODAY Sports

Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson threw a touchdown pass to Tyler Lockett on Sunday against the Arizona Cardinals, his 35th of the year. That set a new franchise record, surpassing his own mark of 34, which he hit in 2015 and 2017. Wilson also threw an interception against the Cardinals, but it was only his seventh all year.

The Seahawks went on to win 27-24, clinching them a 10-6 record and the 5-seed in the NFC playoffs. They will face the Dallas Cowboys next weekend.

Seattle’s win was the 75th of Wilson’s career, which is three more than any other QB in NFL history through seven seasons. He’s one of only three QBs in history to start all 112 games through seven years, joining Peyton Manning and Joe Flacco. If the Seahawks managed to pull off the remarkable feat of winning the Super Bowl, Wilson would have more postseason wins than any other QB in NFL history through seven seasons, assuming he remains healthy

Wilson has the highest passer rating of any QB through seven seasons with a minimum of 70 starts. He is third all-time in TD passes through seven seasons, behind Dan Marino and Manning.

He’s good.
