Wilson completed 12 of 24 passes for 168 yards and a score during the contest. It wound up being a fairly tame game for Wilson, as the San Francisco defense was able to put pressure on him most of the day. Wilson wound up taking five sacks, and turned the ball over on an interception. He wasn't as much of a threat on the ground, either, gaining just 27 rushing yards.
Wilson will hope for more Week 16 against the Cardinals.
Wilson completed 22 of 37 passes for 263 yards and two passing touchdowns. He did not turn the ball over during the contest. Wilson was able to use his escapability in the pocket to extend some plays. While he was sacked twice, he also managed to break free and find receivers often. Wilson averaged 7.1 yards per attempt. As usual, he was also a threat in the running game. Wilson ran the ball 10 times for 48 yards. He was able to break free on a 26 yard touchdown run in the second quarter, tying the game up.
Wilson will look for more Week 15 against the 49ers.
If you have yet to put your faith back in
The Eagles rank 26th against the pass, giving up 258.6 yards per game, and have allowed the fourth-most Fantasy points per game to quarterbacks. Their opponents are pretty much forced to pass against them just to keep from falling too far behind. The Eagles are averaging 31.3 points per game, fourth-most in the league, and have been even more productive with Mark Sanchez under center, averaging 34.4 in their last five.
Of course, they haven't had to face the Seahawks during that stretch, who are back to being a dominant defensive team. If their defense steps up against a strong offense, Wilson may not be needed for big numbers, which is always the risk for him.
But based on how his last few weeks have gone and how much better the Eagles are offensively than the Seahawks' last few opponents, more likely than not, Wilson has good things in store. Jamey Eisenberg and Dave Richard both rank him among their top 10 quarterbacks for this week.
Wilson was able to hit running back Robert Turbin for a 13-yard touchdown late in the first quarter and spent much of the rest of the day serving as a caretaker for the offense with the running game working and the defense putting together a dominant performance. Even so, Wilson was able to put up his highest passing yardage in his last six games. The Seahawks have a trip to Philadelphia on tap in Week 14.
Wilson has been a little uneven in the passing game lately, completing less than 50 percent of his attempts in Week 9 and less than 60 percent in Week 10, but played exceedingly well against a very good Arizona defense Sunday, posting a season-high 77.3 completion percentage while rushing for at least 70 yards for his third straight game. His touchdown came after the Seahawks put four field goals on the board, connecting with Cooper Helfet on a 20-yard score in the third quarter. He'll look to keep rolling when the Seahawks head to San Francisco Thursday.
