Russell Wilson let the world know that he is still one of the best quarterbacks in the NFL and that his Seattle Seahawks remain a dangerous team in the NFC.

Wilson threw 3 touchdown passes in Seattle’s 24-10 win over Philadelphia. The loss ended Philadelphia’s nine-game winning streak.

“I thought Russell was phenomenal tonight. I thought that was Russell showing you everything he’s all about,” Seattle coach Pete Carroll said. “From start to finish, from the first play of the game he was on it.”

Seattle moved to 8-4 on the season and remain in good position for a playoff spot. The Eagles feel to 10-2 and are now tied with the Vikings for the best record in the NFC.

Wilson, an outspoken Christian, played like a man possessed and his teammates noticed.

“He was in the zone,” Seattle wide receiver Doug Baldwin said to ESPN. “I told him whatever that felt like, he’s got to hold on to it because we need him to be in that mode for the rest of the season, because if he does that, we’ll be unstoppable.”

On Saturday Night, 20 hours or so before his team beat the Eagles, Wilson shared a simple tweet of gratitude to the one who has helped him through his life, Jesus Christ.
