Seattle QB Russell Wilson named NFC Offensive Player of the Week

Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson has been named the NFC Offensive Player of the Week, the league announced Wednesday morning.

Wilson had 339 yards passing and 88 rushing in a 35-6 win over Arizona on Sunday.

The NFL has determined it’s the only time in history a quarterback has had two games of 330-plus yards passing and 85-plus yards rushing (Wilson also did it against St. Louis earlier this season with 313 passing and 106 rushing).

It’s the second time this season Wilson has won the award, and the fourth time in his career. He won it earlier this season when he had 201 yards passing and 122 rushing in a win at Washington.

Speaking of Wilson, here’s a good column on him today by Jerry Brewer saying there is no limit to his improvement.
