Russell Wilson is off to a red-hot start to the 2020 NFL season. Through three games, Wilson has completed 76.7% of his passes for 925 yards, 14 touchdowns, and just one interception.
With his fifth touchdown of the day on Sunday against the Cowboys, his 14th on the year, Wilson topped Patrick Mahomes’ record for most touchdown passes through the first three games of the regular season.
Wilson has been near-perfect from wire-to-wire to begin the season, with only a few misfires as the majority of his incompletions have come on drops, while his lone interception came via a Greg Olsen tipped pass.
With the best wide receiver duo Wilson has ever had in Tyler Lockett and DK Metcalf, and a defense that remains incredibly suspect, there’s no reason to think Wilson will cool off anytime soon. So, while he set an early season touchdown record on Sunday, more records could fall as the Seahawks’ superstar quarterback continues to play at an incredible level.
