Wilson led the NFL and tied a team record with 34 touchdown passes in 2017, but it was partly a result of an inept running game as he posted career lows in completion percentage (61.3) and yards per attempt (7.2).
Wilson threw 15 touchdown passes inside the 10-yard line (second overall) as the Seahawks passed on 64.3 percent of their inside-the-10 plays (also second), largely because they couldn't run the ball. Seattle running backs rushed 17 times inside the 10 for minus-11 yards -- the fewest in the NFL since 1991 -- and failed to score one touchdown. The Seahawks' two rushing TDs inside the 10 came from Wilson, who accounted for all but one of the team's offensive touchdowns. The running game's ineffectiveness was such that Wilson became the fifth quarterback since 1970 to lead his team in rushing (586 yards). The ground attack was partly a victim of another terrible Seattle offensive line, as was Wilson, who was sacked 43 times, becoming the third quarterback ever with five consecutive seasons of 40-plus sacks. Unless the Seahawks upgrade the offensive line substantially this offseason, expect Wilson to match former Cardinal Neil Lomax's dubious record of being brought down more than 40 teams in six consecutive seasons (1983-88).
Russell Wilson was 18 of 29 for 221 yards and threw two touchdown passes Sunday in the Seattle Seahawks' 26-24 loss to the Arizona Cardinals. He did not throw an interception, didn't fumble and was sacked three times. Wilson added 36 rushing yards on five carries.
The Seahawks won't be returning to the playoffs, though Wilson did his best to keep them in the race by tying a career high with 34 touchdown passes and falling just short of a third straight 4,000-yard season despite playing behind a porous offensive line. Also second among quarterbacks in rushing yards, the Pro Bowl selection should remain an elite fantasy starter assuming the Seahawks address their weaknesses up front.
Wilson completed 18 of 29 passes for 221 yards and two touchdowns during Sunday's 26-24 loss to the Cardinals.
With a playoff berth hanging in the balance, the Seahawks offense mustered 24 total yards by the end of the second quarter, 36 of those on 4-of-8 passing from Wilson. Trailing 20-7 at halftime, the sixth-year signal caller culminated two of seven second-half possessions with touchdown passes to Doug Baldwin, including an NFL-record 19th in the fourth quarter. The pair of TDs left Wilson with a league-leading 34 on the season, but the Seahawks' final drive stalled out at the Cardinals' 30-yard line, from which Blair Walsh missed a potential game winner from 48 yards with 37 seconds remaining. Overall, Wilson accounted for a ridiculous 86 percent (37 of 43) of Seattle's touchdowns in 2017, so management likely will seek out moves in the offseason to create a bit more balance between run and pass for the 2018 campaign.
