Seeing Ru sell Wilson win a showdown againstTom Brady in Foxborough and how he did it was a reminder of how the Seattlequarterback Jalen Ramsey 2018 Game Jersey 'scareer arc is mirroring that of the New England pa ser. Nobody could have seen that coming, including Wilson and the Seahawks.To be fair, though, nobody saw Bradys career arc coming, either, including the Patriots.But there they were Sunday night, the Patriots fighting to keep the best record in the NFL with an offense built around Brady and his skills. That remains a far cry from his earliest days in the 2000s, when their running game and defense defined them and Brady was not a game manager, but also not the quarterbacking gold standard he is now.Gue s what other teams offense has evolved the same way in their quarterbacks first five years.MARVEZ: What we learned about Seahawks, PatriotsAs under-appreciated as the full array of his pa sing skills have been over his career, what Wilson has shown since last season has taken his reputation on a 180-degree turn. Even when it was said to praise him instead of disparage him, his first three seasons were all about how his succe s was all due to a rugged running game, an elite defense and his own elusivene s that kept him from having to throw a lot.That defense is still in full effect, clearly. The running game has been a patchwork Jimmy Smith Jersey effort since last year when Marshawn Lynch limped through his final season and Thomas Rawlspromising rookie season ended with a broken ankle. The le s said about the offensive line and how the Seahawks have failed to develop it, the better.It hasnt mattered because Wilson now wins Allen Robinson Jersey games, pre sures defenses and establishes the Seahawks identity with his arm how he throws the ball, not how he rides his teammates coattails.Very much like Brady did as time went on.WATCH: Wilson rips Patriots defense to shredsBy Year 5, Brady had been to three Super Bowls (winning them all) and was the Patriots offensive foundation and the one constant while every other position on both sides of the ball became a revolving door. On offense, the names and faces have changed constantly, but the numbers, his production and his indispensable role has never changed.In Year 5, Wilson has been to the Super Bowl twice, winning once, and the Seahawks have followed a similar blueprint: as many of the names change around him, his portion of the offense has grown, and so havehis responsibilities.Thus, where skeptics once wondered Allen Robinson Bold Gold Legend Jersey aloud if he could play consistently well from the pocket, if he could survive without Beast Mode and Co. to play off ofand whether all his running would catch up to him one day, Wilson has shown what he can do when more of the burden has been shifted to him.As it was pointed out hereafter the Seahawks 31-24 win Sunday night, they set the tempo and tone with pieces fitting around Wilson and he carved the Patriots up. Not that long ago (basically, before last season), if he had to throw more than 30 times, that was a bad sign, and his critics often joked about how often he barely made it past 200 yards pa sing. On Sunday, he threw37 times, gained 348 yards and, for the 13th time in the last 16 games, had no interceptions.In fact, over those 16 games, dating back to a 2015 Week 10 win over the 49ers, Wilson has thrown 32 touchdowns and three interceptions. The win over the Patriots was the eighth time in that span A.J. Bouye Jersey that hes had at least three touchdown pa ses with no interceptions in a game.MORE: 15 all-time greatest Seahawks playersThe Seahawks are 12-3-1 over those 16 games.They could go back to their old formula if they like, and if one of this years running-back finds truly blo soms. But why should they?The Ru sell Wilson formula works just fine. Very much like the Tom Brady formula did.
