Russell Wilson becomes 3rd quarterback with 4 straight seasons of 30+ touchdowns

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

With a strike to the corner of the endzone, finding Tyler Lockett for his second touchdown pass of the night against the Cardinals, Russell Wilson joined rare company.

Wilson’s score to Lockett was the Seahawks’ quarterback’s 30th touchdown pass of the season, making it four straight seasons he has thrown for 30 or more touchdowns. Wilson is now the third quarterback in NFL history to achieve that feat, joining Brett Favre and Drew Brees.

Wilson still has a long way to go to have the longest such streak, as Favre did it in five consecutive seasons, while Brees did it nine years in a row. With a talented group of pass catchers and empowered more than ever, however, Wilson is unlikely to slow down his fantastic pace anytime soon.

More important than Wilson’s accomplishment was the first-half performance from Seattle, as the team has looked strong on both sides of the ball after back-to-back difficult games.
