Seattle Seahawks’ quarterback, Russell Wilson, has set a new team record for rushing yards by a quarterback in the game against the Arizona Cardinals. Wilson broke the record of 3,357 yards previously held by Dave Krieg, with a 20-yard run in the second quarter of the game. Wilson finished the game with 3,380 career rushing yards, cementing his place in Seahawks’ history.
Wilson’s record-breaking run came on a third-and-long situation, and he took advantage of the space created by the Cardinals’ defense. He broke through the line of scrimmage and made a quick move to evade a defender before accelerating upfield for the first down. The play ignited the Seahawks’ offense, and they went on to score a touchdown on the drive, taking a 13-7 lead.
Wilson has been a threat on the ground since he entered the NFL in 2012. He has shown incredible speed and agility for a quarterback, regularly leaving defenders in his wake. In his rookie season, he rushed for 489 yards and four touchdowns, setting the tone for his career.
Since then, Wilson has continued to be a major threat with his legs, rushing for over 500 yards in each of his first six seasons in the league. He has also scored 22 rushing touchdowns, making him one of the most dangerous dual-threat quarterbacks in the NFL.
Wilson’s ability to make plays with his legs has been a major part of the Seahawks’ success over the years. He has helped lead the team to two Super Bowl appearances, winning one in 2014. He has also been named to the Pro Bowl eight times and has been named Second-Team All-Pro twice.
The Seahawks’ win over the Cardinals was an important one for the team, as they moved to 7-3 on the season, keeping pace with the Los Angeles Rams in the NFC West. The team will look to continue their winning ways as they take on the Philadelphia Eagles next week.
In conclusion, Russell Wilson has broken yet another record in his impressive NFL career. His ability to make plays with his legs has been a key factor in the success of the Seattle Seahawks. With this latest accomplishment, Wilson has solidified his place in team history and has shown that he is still one of the best dual-threat quarterbacks in the league.
