Russell Wilson is one of three quarterbacks up for Air Player of the Week at NFL.com following his performance in this past Sunday's 24-7 win over the New York Giants at MetLife Stadium.
The Seahawks signal caller completed 27-of-39 (69.2 percent) throws for 334 yards, Wilson's second-highest total of the season, tossed three touchdowns — one to Doug Baldwin, one to Paul Richardson, and one to Jimmy Graham — and recorded a season-high 121.1 quarterback rating. Wilson's Week 7 touchdown total is a number of note for the Seahawks, who now own a 12-0 regular-season record when Wilson passes for three scores.
For the weekly award, Wilson finds himself up against Oakland quarterback Derek Carr, who went 29-of-52 for 417 yards and three touchdowns, including a game-winning score as time expired, in a 31-30 win over Kansas City, as well as Chiefs quarterback Alex Smith, who in that same game completed 25-of-36 passes for 342 yards and three touchdowns.
Voting is open right here through 12 p.m. PT on Thursday, October 26 and fans can also cast a ballot on Twitter using the #AirAndGround hashtag and the nominee's last name. If Wilson is honored, a $2,000 donation will be made in his name to the USO. The winner will be announced Thursday afternoon.
