In Seattle's cakewalk over New Orleans,
The two biggest gainers came against blitzes. Wilson read them and made the Saints pay.
"We wanted to be great against the blitz," Wilson said, via the Associated Press. "We knew they were going to bring some pressure and we like the sense of pressure because there is a lot of green grass behind it."
Wilson entered the game as the league's most accurate thrower on deep balls. He had completed 59 percent of his throws targeted 20 or more yards downfield.
On such throws, Wilson was 22 of 39 for 702 yards and eight touchdowns with two interceptions, according to Pro Football Focus. In Week 13 he only enhanced those numbers.
Wilson also led the team on the ground, carrying eight times for 47 yards (5.9-yard average), as he posted his highest rushing total since Week 6.
Wilson burned the Saints when they blitzed, hitting tight end Zach Miller for 60 yards and Doug Baldwin for 52 yards. He hooked up with Miller on a 2-yard slant for a touchdown, and found Baldwin wide open for a 4-yard score. Even a drop went Wilson’s way. In the third quarter, tight end Kellen Davis flubbed a reception and fullback Derrick Coleman caught the deflection for an 8-yard touchdown.
Wilson, who connected with nine different receivers, has seven touchdown passes and no interceptions over his last three games. He’ll play the 49ers in Week 14.
