Russell Wilson began the season by joining Steve Young as the only two quarterbacks in NFL history with 30,000+ passing yards and 4,000+ rushing yards. As Wilson tends to do, he has continued to hit different milestones during the season, including becoming the third quarterback in NFL history to have at least 4 straight seasons with 30+ TD passes, joining Brett Favre and Drew Brees, a week ago.
Week 12 brought yet another achievement for the Seahawks’ quarterback.
With Wilson’s second completion of the night against the Eagles, he became just the second player in NFL history to throw for 3,000+ yards in each of his first nine seasons, joining Peyton Manning. Wilson and Manning are also the only passers to top 20 touchdowns in each of their first nine years.

Amazingly, it no longer surprises to see Wilson among all-time greats, as he continues to navigate his career at a record-breaking pace. In Week 12 of his ninth season, Wilson earned yet another fantastic achievement. However, it’s safe to say he has already turned his focus to next Sunday.
