Russell Wilson has been one of the most consistent and successful quarterbacks of his generation. He is now going to bring that resume to the Denver Broncos.
Russell Wilson, a third-round pick of the Seattle Seahawks in the 2012 draft, was supposed to be a career backup or a project quarterback that was seen as “too small” by many scouts.
He proved all of that wrong almost immediately when he beat out Matt Flynn, who the Seahawks had signed to a big deal that offseason, for the starting quarterback job. Head coach Pete Carroll just could not keep him on the bench and that decision paid off as Wilson and the Seahawks won the Super Bowl one year later.
Looking across the decade that Wilson has played in the league, he has put forth several elite performances. Here, you will see that Wilson can get the job done with his arm and his legs while also helping the Seahawks win a lot of games.
No wonder why Broncos fans are so excited for the 2022 season, though there should be some trepidation.
Here are the 10 best games of Wilson’s NFL career.
Russell Wilson’s best games: No. 10- November 11, 2018, at Los Angeles Rams
The Seahawks went to Los Angeles for this game and Wilson did everything he could to get his team the win.
The Seahawks got off to a rough start in 2018, getting beaten by the Broncos in the season opener. They were 4-4 going into this game, looking for a spark to get them through the season.
Wilson only threw for 176 yards in this game but he threw three touchdown passes and also rushed for 92 yards in the game, helping the Hawks put 31 points on the board.
Unfortunately, the Rams scored 36 to win the game and drop Seattle to 4-5 on the year. But Seattle would only lose one more game that season en route to a playoff berth.
