Wilson completed 17 of 30 passes for 225 yards with two touchdowns and two interceptions in Saturday's 36-20 divisional-round loss to the Falcons. He also gained 49 yards on six rushes and was sacked three times, including once for a safety. Wilson and the Seahawks were lights out to the open the game, putting together a 14-play, 89-yard drive that consumed 8:34 off the clock and culminated in a seven-yard scoring dart to Jimmy Graham. However, it was largely downhill from there, with an injury to right guard Germain Ifedi kick-starting a series of unfortunate events. Rookie Rees Odhiambo, who took over for Ifedi, inadvertently stepped on Wilson's foot with the Seahawks backed up to their seven-yard line after a penalty wiped out an 80-yard punt return by Devin Hester, leading to a safety. Wilson subsequently sandwiched fourth-quarter interceptions around a 31-yard touchdown to Doug Baldwin, with the second pick coming with 2:15 remaining and sealing Seattle's fate. Wilson did lead the Seahawks in rushing on the afternoon, and his yardage total on the ground actually was the second highest he'd amassed all season. Despite the disappointing finish to the campaign, the Wisconsin product did set career highs in completions (353), attempts (546) and passing yardage (4,219) in 2016.
Wilson completed 23 of 30 passes for 224 yards with two touchdowns and no interceptions in Saturday's 26-6 wild-card win over the Lions. He also lost three yards on three rushes. Head coach Pete Carroll made good on his promise to feature Thomas Rawls heavily Saturday, but Wilson maximized his opportunities as well. He looked sharp while connecting with eight different pass-catchers, and had his usual rapport with Doug Baldwin in high gear, connecting with his favorite receiver on 11 occasions for a game-high 104 yards. Both of Wilson's touchdowns were a bit on the unorthodox side, with Paul Richardson making a contested one-handed grab for the ages on the first one, and Baldwin essentially stealing a throw originally intended for Jermaine Kearse on the second. The fifth-year pro looks to be in fine form for the postseason, and will need to be hitting on all cylinders for next week's divisional round-showdown against the Falcons.
Wilson completed 19 of 32 for 258 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's win over the 49ers. He added four yards on two carries. Wilson netted Seattle its first touchdown of the game midway through the second quarter with a toss up the seam to Luke Willson. Seattle pulled Wilson before the game was over, but not before he set a new career high with 4,219 passing yards. It hasn't been all roses for Wilson, however. The dual threat set a career low in rushing yards and failed to build off of his frantic touchdown pace from late last season.
Wilson finished 29-of-45 passing for a career-high 350 yards and four touchdowns Saturday in a loss to the Cardinals. He also rushed 10 times for 36 yards. Wilson's 45 attempts were also a career high. Wilson struggled in the first half behind an offensive line that gave up six sacks in the game. But the line held better in the second half, allowing Wilson to throw three TD passes, including the game-tying touchdown with about a minute to play. Wilson missed a couple open receivers for big plays, but he seemed to have better touch on his passes than he had in recent weeks.
Wilson completed 19 of 26 passes for 229 yards with three touchdowns and an interception in Thursday's 24-3 win over the Rams. He also gained 12 yards on six rushes. Wilson endured some pressure as usual, but he was able to make the key plays when necessary to pull out what turned out to be a relatively comfortable win. Wilson was able to connect with three different pass catches for his trio of scores, finding Luke Willson for eight yards to open the scoring early in the second quarter, tossing a nifty one-yard touch pass to Doug Baldwin in the third, and capping off the night with a beautiful 57-yard bomb to Tyler Lockett early in the fourth. The performance was a badly-needed bounce-back for Wilson, who'd thrown a career-high five interceptions just four days prior against the Packers. It was the fifth-year pro's first multi-touchdown game since Nov. 13 against the Patriots, although he did throw an interception for the fourth straight week. He'll look for another strong outing against the Cardinals in Week 16.
