Wilson earns 1st NFL win as a starter

SEATTLE, WA (WWBT) -

Russell Wilson made his second NFL start as a rookie on Sunday, but he ran the offense with the efficiency and accuracy of an experienced veteran, leading the Seahawks to a 27-7 win over the Dallas Cowboys.

Wilson completed 15 of his 20 pass attempts for 151 yards, and capped off a 90 yard third quarter drive with a touchdown pass, finding Anthony McCoy from 22 yards out.  He also added 28 rushing yards on four carries, and kept the pace of the offense where head coach Pete Carroll had hoped he would.

The Richmond native and Collegiate product has now completed 33 of 54 pass attempts in his two games, throwing for two touchdowns and one interception. 

Wilson will take the big stage of Monday Night Football next week, as Seattle host the Green Bay Packers on Monday night.
