Week 2 of the NFL season is over and it’s time to crown the newest rookie of the week. He led his team to a stunning upset over the Dallas Cowboys 27-7.
It is Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson.
Wilson finished the day completing 15 of 20 passes for 151 yards and a touchdown. Not to mention that gives him a 112.7 completion percentage.
Wilson showed a strong will to control his offense against a strong defense in Dallas, a defense with DeMarcus Ware bouncing around the line to try and fool quarterbacks. Wilson certainly wasn’t fooled.
So far Wilson is proving that he is worthy of the starting position and is gaining Seattle some confidence. Congrats on this weeks awesome rookie honors, and I’m looking forward to seeing what else he can bring this season.
