Russell Wilson provides impressive TD with deep rocket despite struggles against Buffalo
Even in an afternoon where Russell Wilson struggled, the Seattle Seahawks quarterback provided a reminder of how he truly is an elite player.
Sunday represented just the second time all season that Wilson has thrown multiple interceptions in a single game. And while his MVP candidacy, scorching hot a month ago, has tailed off a bit, Wilson still remains a truly special playmaker.
With 8:50 left in the fourth quarter, Wilson hit wide receiver David Moore with a 55-yard touchdown pass to make it a 41-27 game at the Buffalo Bills.
He did so, making the throw on the run and right into the breadbasket of Moore. It was an impressive play all around for Wilson.

On the Seahawks’ next possession, however, Wilson struggled again with a lost fumble. He was also sacked five times in the loss.
Wilson is a former Wisconsin quarterback who was a graduate transfer into the program from North Carolina State. In his lone season as a Badger, he threw for 3,175 yards with 33 touchdowns and four interceptions in 2011.
He was an All-Big Ten selection that season as well as being named the Griese-Brees Big Ten Quarterback of the Year.
