Wilson completed 16 of 21 passes for 192 yards with two touchdowns and no interceptions in Thursday's 27-17 preseason victory over the Cowboys. He also gained two yards on three carries and fumbled once.
The Pro Bowler looked to be in mid-season form throughout his time on the field, impressively connecting with multiple receivers and displaying his trademark elusiveness in the pocket. Wilson's pair of touchdowns were notable in their own right, first hitting Paul Richardson on a perfect touch pass for his first score and then buying considerable time by scrambling and hitting Tyler Lockett in the right corner of the end zone to hit paydirt a second time. The fifth-year pro looks set to build on what was a stellar 4,024-yard, 34-touchdown 2015 campaign in the coming season.
Through two games, the Wilson-led first-team offense has not scored a point. A couple of the sacks were Wilson's fault for holding onto the ball too long, and another was the fault of running back Alex Collins who failed to make a key block. The offensive line, though, looked shaky at the tackle spots, which likely will continue to be an issue into the season. Even though the first-teamers have played about two quarters total in two games, their lack of production is still a bit concerning.

Russell Wilson completed 31 of 48 passes for 366 yards, three touchdowns and two interceptions in Sunday's loss to the Panthers. He added 32 yards on three carries.
Two early picks put Seattle in a very early bind, forcing the team to play catch-up by throwing a bunch in the second half. None the less, Wilson threw for at least three touchdowns for the seventh time in his last eight games after having just six such performances in his regular season career prior to that. Wilson's running ability made him a top-level quarterback coming into the season. Though he only scored once on the ground in 2015, his new-found ability to put up consistently big passing performances should make him an even hotter commodity in 2016.
Russell Wilson completed 13 of 26 passes for 142 yards, a touchdown and an interception in Sunday's win over Minnesota. He added 21 yards on the ground on five attempts.
With temperatures hanging below zero for much of the game, Wilson and Seattle's offense was held scoreless through three quarters. Then, on a botched snap, Wilson improvised and found Tyler Lockett down field for a 35-yard gain. A few plays later, Wilson connected with Doug Baldwin in the end zone for the 13th time in nine games and the tides turned. Next up for Wilson is a date at Carolina, a team that narrowly beat the Seattle Seahawks in Seattle in Week 6 with Wilson tallying 294 total yards, a passing touchdown and no turnovers.
