Russell Wilson has quietly been keeping up with both Andrew Luck and Robert Griffin III all season with his strong play. On a day when Luck’s Colts lost and Griffin sat out with an injury, Wilson may jump both players as the new leader for the offensive rookie of the year award. Wilson has four touchdowns through the first half, with one coming through the air and three on the ground. He’s completed 63 percent of his passes on the season with over 2,500 yards, 21 touchdowns and just nine interceptions. Wilson is also nearing 400 yard rushing on the season with three touchdowns. Wilson has put those impressive numbers together while leading his Seahawks to an 8-5 record. Not bad for a rookie, huh? Watch Wilson’s third rushing touchdown of the day in the GIF below.
