Russell Wilson Makes MVP Statement During Thursday Night Football

After the Thursday Night Football game, Russell Wilson put himself in the center of the 2019 MVP discussion. In a high scoring Thursday Night Football game, Russell Wilson played almost flawlessly going 17/23, 268 yards, 4 TDs, and 32 yards rushing against a very good Rams defense.

Anyone around the NFL would tell you Patrick Mahomes is the front runner for MVP in 2019, but Russell Wilson should be a contender for his crown.

This season alone Wilson has compiled a 73.1 completion percentage, 1409 yards through the air, 12 TDs, and 0 interceptions, plus 120 yards rushing with 2 TDs.

Patrick Mahomes deserves all the praise he gets from the Media and the NFL, but Russell Wilson has been playing at the same level as Mahomes this year.
