A daily link round-up of what's "out there" about your Seattle Seahawks


Good morning, 12s.

Here's a look at what's "out there" for today - Wednesday, Dec. 2 - about your Seattle Seahawks:

Russell Wilson Earns Player of the Week

Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson has been named Offensive Player of the Week in the NFC for his regular-season career-high 345 yards passing and career-high five touchdown passes in the team's 39-30 Week 12 win over the Pittsburgh Steelers. 

Wilson, who played the game with an illness on his 27th birthday, completed 21-of-30 throws (70 percent) for a 147.9 quarterback rating, the second-best of his four-year career. He became the first person to throw for five touchdowns on his birthday since Warren Moon in 1990 and those five touchdowns tied a franchise record set by Moon, Dave Krieg, and Matt Hasselbeck. It was the 20th time in Wilson's career where he threw multiple touchdowns without an interception in a game, the most by any player in his first four NFL seasons since the 1970 merger.

It's the fifth Player of the Week award for Wilson, the most ever by a Seahawks quarterback. With the honor Wilson joins Peyton Manning as the only quarterbacks in the past 25 years to win Player of the Week in each of their first four seasons.
