Despite expert opinion in early summer, the NFL season has kicked off (literally) with a bang. Story lines abound as teams establish their favorite status for a playoff run. One of the more surprising teams may be the Seattle Seahawks but it should be because their quarterback has been elite for years. And this year, really elite. Russell Wilson continues to be overlooked as one of the best QBs in the NFL despite an NFL championship and now setting more records. In a victory against the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday, Wilson went 27-40 with 5 TDs and no interceptions. The effort included an easy 2 minute drill TD to turn a 1 point deficit into a 7 point win. Having defeated the Cowboys, Falcons, and Patriots three straight with 14 TD and 1 INT, he's making the league forget about other QBs of the prior era. Not to mention, his Seahawks defense, once vaunted, is averaging allowing 28+ PPG so his effort is needed. The road to the Super Bowl appears Wide Open and Wilson is ready to lead his team again. A worthy Sportsman of the Week!
