After dropping their first two games, the Seattle Seahawks slowly got back on track and they seem to be hitting their stride right about now.

Much of that is thanks to Russell Wilson, who is playing some of his best quarterbacking of the season in recent weeks. You really don’t get a clear picture of just how ridiculously good Wilson has been until you put his stats on paper, and luckily the fine people at For The Win did just that, via Pro Football Reference.

Wilson has been fantastic over his last five games, but the real shocker comes when you put his numbers (at least three touchdowns and a passer rating of over 120) against any other player since 1960.

It seems Wilson is peaking at just the right time despite star tight end Jimmy Graham and running backs Marshawn Lynch and Thomas Rawls missing significant time.
