3. Russell Wilson passes for over 350 yards for fourth time
Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson is very much in the NFL MVP race, but has only thrown for more than 350 yards three times so far this season.
Wilson passed for 390 yards with two touchdowns and two interceptions against the Bills back in Week 9 (Buffalo ranks 18th in passing defense), 388 with three touchdowns and three interceptions in an overtime loss to the Cardinals (Arizona ranks No. 13 in passing defense), and 30 yards with three touchdowns and one interception against the Dolphins (Miami ranks No. 17 in passing defense).
Meanwhile, the Giants enter Week 13 allowing an average of 244.7 passing yards per game and sit 19th in the league in passing yards allowed.
First and foremost, it’s imperative that Giants cornerback James Bradberry wins his battle against Seahawks wide receiver D.K. Metcalf, but even if Bradberry shuts down the NFL’s leading receiver, Wilson still has Tyler Lockett, and David Moore at his disposal.
Unless the Giants’ pass rush is downright dominant up front, there’s a chance Wilson sets a new season-high for passing yards against this secondary. Even if it is, Wilson’s mobility and prowess at airing it out while on the run give him a good chance to exceed 350 yards through the air.
