Seahawks' Russell Wilson: Throws a career-high five touchdowns

Wilson completed 21 of 30 passes for 345 yards and a career-high five touchdowns in Sunday's 39-30 win over Pittsburgh. The five passing scores also tied a franchise record.

Wilson was coming off his most productive game of the season, but was even better Sunday against a hard-hitting Steelers' defense, capping his huge fantasy day with an 80-yard touchdown to Doug Baldwin at 2:01 of the fourth quarter. On a negative note, Wilson lost one of his top targets, as TE Jimmy Graham suffered a knee injury, and had to be carted off the field. In somewhat of a disappointing fantasy campaign, Wilson threw for over 300 yards for the first time this season. It will probably be tough for him to duplicate his five-touchdown explosion next week at Minnesota, although things look good for his owners during the fantasy playoffs, as the fourth-year QB will face Baltimore in Week 14 and Cleveland in Week 15.
