Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson has been named NFC Offensive Player of the Week for his performance in Seattle’s 27-17 victory over the Washington Redskins Monday night at FedEx Field in Washington, D.C. Wilson completed 18 of 24 passes for 201 yards and two touchdowns and rushed for a Monday night-record 122 and a touchdown.
Wilson compiled a 127.3 passer rating and averaged 11.1 yards per rush in becoming the third quarterback in the Super Bowl era to produce two games of 200 yards passing and 100 yards receiving. Wilson first achieved the feat last year against Indianapolis.
This is the third weekly honor for Wilson, who also won in Week 13 in the 2012 and 2013 seasons. Wilson is the third quarterback to win the award in each of his first three seasons in the NFL, joining Peyton Manning and Andrew Luck.
Wilson and the Seahawks, 3-1, will play the Dallas Cowboys Sunday at CenturyLink Field. Kickoff is scheduled for 1:25 p.m. on FOX.
